Welcome to Asto Wamah’s May BLOG!
Hope this new month finds you well and happy!
We have just survived a VERY wet April at Asto Wamah. Because of the record-breaking rain, Columbia Lake is now FULL. It is very unusual for this to happen so early in the year but we are not complaining. A full lake will result in lots of fun in and on the water.
Saturday, April 27 was our traditional Spring Work Day at Asto Wamah. Thirty-five energetic volunteers spent the morning raking, stacking brush, cleaning cabins, washing dishes, and in general, getting camp ready for the 2019 season. Camp looks great and is well on its way to being prepared for the first campers to arrive on June 30. THANK YOU to all who participated! The improvement is obvious! Your help is sincerely appreciated!
Hope you have all marked your calendars for our May 25th Open Camp Day. This is an opportunity for new families to visit camp that Saturday between 3 and 5 pm and have a tour of the grounds. Counselors and returning campers will be present to show you around and answer questions. We are all looking forward to meeting first-year campers and their families!
There are still a few places open in Boys’ camp and Second Girls’. If you know someone who may be interested, please spread the word. We are close to having a full camp and your help is always appreciated. Thank you!
We trust you are as excited about the upcoming Asto Wamah season as we are. The staff has been hired and they are exceptional! They have all been a part of Asto Wamah as campers or LTs in the past. All are enthusiastic and focused on providing the 2019 campers with an awesome Asto Wamah camping experience! Only 2 months to go!
