IMAGE CAPTION – On the road with Merri-Mac!

Camp is really busy these days!

One of the best things we get to do is meet with our contractors as we decide what building

projects to begin this winter. The first has already started but you will have to wait a little

while before we tell you what it is and show the pictures! The other exciting thing is that our

first Florida trip starts Monday with meetings with Amelia Island with Kelsey J., Orlando with the

Wingo’s, Winter Haven with the Hewett’s, Tarpon Springs with the Potts, Tampa with the Columbus’s,

Naples with the Loughran’s, Sanible Island with the Sittons, Tampa again with the Hovels, Ft.

Lauderdale with the Guardabassi’s, Delray with the Sheehy’s, Davey with the Guisto’s, and finally

Margate with the Palacios. We’ll be planning lots of other trips too so just let us know if you

would like to host one.

We’ve heard from lots of campers. Morgan S. and Joanna J., wrote in to say hi,

From the staff:

Lennon D. says: “Hey all you Merri-Mac girls! I hope everyone has had a wonderful start to their

school year! Just think – each week at camp is just another week closer to us all being back at camp

together again! I am extremely psyched to be going back to camp this summer as a junior counselor –

wow that’s so amazing for me to say. My senior year at school is fabulous, lots of hard work but

still it’s amazing. I miss you girls and cannot wait to see everyone again this summer! God bless

for a wonderful year!” Also Mandi H. says she’s thinking about coming back saying, ” I will be

starting to teach next fall as a teacher since I am graduating in the spring”.Hope everything is

going well. Heard camp was a blast this summer! Oh and just a little side note, Natalie Hall (now

Harbin- got married in May) is pregnant! She’s really excited and due in May. Just figured I’d

pass the word on. Have a great weekend!”

There’s lots of other news and lots of letters from campers and staff, but they’ll have to wait

until next week. Keep us posted on what you are up to by clicking on the what’s new link and we’ll

try to include it in future Smokesignals.

Great Camping!
