Dear friends, I'm sure at this point we're all tired of hearing about things that are cancelled, and I'm sorry to report that this is another of that kind of communication. Please see the linked Conference newsletter for details of the 2020 SUMMER CAMP SEASON CLOSURE. https://mailchi.mp/93c76f6fa7c8/ncnc-camp-enews-2184842?e=b24adfc816 Please be in touch with [email protected] with questions.
What is helping me through this time is remembering that none of us have ever done this "live through a global pandemic" thing before and we're all trying our best, and our pandemic-mode best looks different from our usual-mode best. I'm also remembering that this won't be forever, and that sheltering-in-place is some radical community love. Times are weird and we don't know what the next day, week, or month will look like, but we have each other. I encourage you to get in touch with your camp friends... for (five!) it won't be long (short) til we're gonna need (elbow!) somebody to (virtually) lean on!

Camp Memories! Camp Tamarack is a magical place where memories are made. What I loved about camp was that you were always involved and you were never excluded. Campers were always helping in the kitchen, helping setup the tables before meals, cleaning up and washing dishes afterwards. I love Camp Ta...
