December Update

Dear Asto Wamah Fans,

            Welcome to December and the final Blog of the year.

            December looks to be another busy month at camp.  Applications are coming in for staff positions and letters of application are arriving for the new group of LTs.  Purchases of programming supplies are being made daily.  Meanwhile, leaf removal and routine maintenance is keeping us busy as we hurry to beat the arrival of snow.  It clearly is a time of preparation in many ways.  Much effort is being directed toward gearing up for the printing of the 2017 Asto Wamah brochure and the camper registration that will quickly follow.  There will be 3 two-week sessions.  The 1 one-weeker is the only coed session.   Here are the details:

  • June 25 to July 1           Coed           Ages 8 to 12
  • July 2 to July 15            All Boys       Ages 8 to 14
  •  July 16 to July 29         All Girls        Ages 8 to 14
  • July 30 to August 12   All Girls         Ages 8 to 14

            Last summer we began a reward system where anyone who tells a friend, relative, classmate, etc. about CAW will receive a free t-shirt if that new person signs up.  In 2016 we had more that 35 people qualify.  We encourage you all to spread the word and help us make sure all the bunks are full.  It is not too early to start.  If you talk to anyone who would like to be on the Asto Wamah mailing list, please email me their contact information.  Know that your help is greatly appreciated. 

            The Camp Reunion invitations were sent our yesterday via email.  (If you did not get one let me know so I can fix that.)   The date is January 7 from 1:00 to 3:00 at Center Church House, 60 Gold Street, Hartford.  We will be playing Minute to Win It games as we did last year.  Everyone enjoyed a hilarious time in 2016 and we are planning on a repeat of that.  Because dessert will be served, having a count of those attending will be helpful.  But don’t worry, there will be extras, so if you don’t RSVP come anyway.  The more the merrier.  Hope you can come.!!

            Wishing you a joyous Christmas or Hanukkah and may 2017 bring us all happiness and peace.  This is a good time of year to Remember the Other Fellow!
