To our 2021 campers, families, and staff - Thank you from the bottom of my heart for another successful day camp season. This year was hard. Trying to deal with changes due to Covid; different field trips, not being able to take as many kiddos, less staff, and just never seeming to have enough time in a day made the days seem hard and exhausting. However, realizing that for some kiddos this was maybe the first almost back to normal thing they have been able to do in over a year and a half made it all worthwhile. Seeing the counselors feeling the love today as campers cried while they said goodbye, made it all worthwhile. Hearing parents say, “See you next year!” made it all worthwhile. We do this because we love the kids. I continue to do this because as a teacher and a mom I know how important these moments, these relationships are for the children and the staff. Thank you for to everyone who helped make the 2021 Alexander Summer Day Camps happen! I hope everyone has a great school year and we will see you again in 2022!
- Miss Amy

My daughter, Miss Ashton, enjoyed her Summer working as a Y.I.T. at Alexander. She learned so much, and it was a great experience for her as she continues her high school studies and wanting to be a teacher. Thank you for letting her be able to spend the day yesterday with her family, and we enjoyed our time meeting some of her young friends she made! It was great to see them light up with a huge smile and run over to give her a big hug! Thank you, and I know she looks forward to returning next Summer!
