IMAGE CAPTION – Camp is looking beautiful in the Fall.

We miss you all so much that we have decided to work a little harder to keep in touch. First, we

will be posting updates, staff news and comments you send in here each week. Next we will post the

camper and counselor directories very soon on the web site. Third, we are building a new Merri-Mac
Facebook page where we will post devotions (written by counselors), and other camp information.

Finally, we are going to work even harder on the road in hopes of seeing more of you this fall and

winter. Keep your eye out for an email with more detail soon, and if we do not have your email

address then, by all means, send it on.

Staff News

The big news here is that Anne Archer is working with us year round. She is currently planning a

trip through NC so let us know if you would like her to come to your house. Sarah Hord and

Hailey Fulford are planning a trip to camp this week, and I suspect that one or two other counselors

may join them. The CIT’s have all sent in their applications and I get to start calling them next

We want to hear from you so click on the “tell us” button and we’ll post your comments here.

With this in mind we have already heard from Lee B. the day after camp ended. “Heyy everyone! I

just submitted my staff application! I feel ‘too legit to quit” as Sunnyside would say! Anyway, I

got home last night and I slept for 12 hours! I can’t believe that my Sunnyside year has come and

past SO quickly, but it was honestly the best summer of my life, just like I had dreamed it would

be. I remember being in Tweedle Doe and looking up to those Sunnysiders so clearly. And I was one

of them! And now I will hopefully be a CIT so I can continue to watch all of you campers grow in

your walk with Christ. For all of these years camp has been all about serving me (the camper). But

now it will be about me giving back to y’all and I can’t wait! I have had so many fun memories at

camp, and so many times when God picked me up when I was down. I am so nervous because I know that

being a CIT will be hard, but I know that seeing your smiling faces everyday will make all of the

work worth it a thousand times over. I know that next summer will be so much fun for everyone and I

can’t wait to start giving back to the place that changed my life forever. I love each and every one

of you will all of my heart! P.S. Princess party is going to be amazing! I already have my theme


We’ll be wondering about that theme and looking forward to hearing from each of you.
