So Long Staff
A bittersweet day at camp today as many of our remarkable staff members headed home. There was a steady stream of hugs, laughter and tears as each packed their cars and made their way up the hill onto Barker Lake Road for the journey from their summer home. For several it was a mixture of joy and sadness as they said goodbye to new dear friends but turned to see the smiles of family that have not seen them for weeks and months.
Our 2009 staff was a very special and gifted group of young women. They acheived the goal of building an amazing community of girls, helping them to build their confidence, discover new abilities and make new friends. And each counselor displayed amazing growth in themselves. It is always very satisfying as directors to see each staff member depart with an even greater sense of self-confidence, a sharper focus in their life and several steps further in their faith journey at the end of each summer. And it is even more incredible the impact each of our staff members have on our lives and on the community of Camp WeHaKee.
We may say goodbye, but we will be forever connected through our experience together this summer. Thank you for serving the girls of Camp WeHaKee. We love you so very much!
