Greetings to all CAW BIRCH BLOG Followers,
Welcome to November and Eastern Standard Time. We trust you are happily embracing the arrival of cold and snowy weather. At this point it seems that those bone-burning days of summer are a distant memory. Today the camp road is covered with a blanket of leaves, the lake has been drawn down to its winter level and the woods are thinner, more open.
As was noted in the last blog, the A-Field has been leveled, graded, de-rocked and seeded. We are now seeing a lot of green on this new flat playing field. The picture does not do credit to the wonderful improvement. It doesn’t look like the same place. You will be amazed when you see it!
We are well into the planning stage for the 2019 CAW season. The biggest hurdle has been to decide on: THE START DATE. You may remember that last summer many schools were not out until quite late in June. That meant some of our ‘teaching’ staff did not finish until after staff training was over. With that memory clear in our minds, it has been decided that coed will begin a week later that usual. So coed will go from June 30 to July 6. The boys’ session will go from July 7 to 20. First girls will go from July 21 to August 3 and second girls will finish the season from August 4 to August 17. A postcard will be sent to you shortly with all this information.
For the past 2 years Mother Nature have kept us from having our traditional Camp Reunion. We will try again on Jan 5, 2019. Save the date and we will be sending you more details via email very soon. We are keeping our fingers crossed for good weather so that you can all come and enjoy an afternoon of games, fun and reconnecting with camp friends.
As in the past, we ask that you help us spread the word about Asto Wamah! YOU are our sole means of advertising. Introduce your friends, neighbors, relatives, and everyone you know to the Asto Wamah experience. Direct anyone who is interested to visit our website: www.campastowamah.org and set-up an account with Ultra Camp. That will allow them to access the latest news and information about camp and be prepared when enrollment opens on Feb. 1. If anyone would like to ask questions or learn more they can call Nancy, evenings, at 860-649-8614.
Enjoy November!! It is the month of Thankfulness! Show Gratitude!
Jen, Catherine, Chris and Nancy
