Camp Asto Wamah - September 2016

Dear CAW Friends,

            I find it hard to fathom that we have come to the end of summer and the new school year is about to begin.  How could this have happened so quickly?  I know they say that 2016 will go down in the record books as the hottest month in history and I am pretty sure that August may be there as well BUT lots of people seem to agree with me that 2016 was the SHORTEST summer EVER!  That doesn’t seem fair:(

            Since you left Asto Wamah I hope you have had some interesting and fun adventures.  Maybe you have had time to demonstrate your new and improved swimming skills, or display your ability to play the ukulele, or try new/unknown foods, or be a better listener.  In completing the evaluation during the last Rest Hour, many of you felt that you would be returning home a more respectful, positive, helpful and independent person.  The entire staff is very proud of the good habits you developed during camp and trust you are sharing them with those around you.  Keep up the good work!  Now it is time to show your teacher(s).

            Camp has definitely moved into the next season.  All is very quiet and a bit lonely.  Today the rafts were moved into shore, out of harms way.  From the 2 included pictures, I hope you can identify each raft and figure out where they will be spending most of the next 10 months.  The White Raft is where you were used to seeing sailboats, and the Gray Raft is in the Aquarium by the Pollywog Dock.  As the next few months pass, I will update you on the status of the lake (it will eventually drop down about 6 feet so that the rafts will be sitting on dry land) and the woods.  There will be many changes in the months ahead.


            Hope you are beginning this new school year with a positive outlook, confident that you will have a successful and happy year! Always Remember the Other Fellow!

My very best to you,
