Re:        Camp Closing Procedures

To:        Staff

I'd like to thank everyone for another successful summer at Camp Blandings.  Besides the usual transition issues, the summer seemed to go well.  In general, the maturity of the campers seemed slightly better than last year.  We can only hope this continues to be the trend, but as we phase in a teen-agers over the next two years it's best to not be too optimistic.

In order to be better prepared for next year's campers I am recommending the following:
There are a few general maintenance items that need to be wrapped up as well.

The policy of keeping the session free of worksheets and study guides seemed to work well for campers and counselors alike.  I recommend next year's staff replicate this year's staff's encouragement of brain deterioration and spotty retention.  

Thank you, again, for your help with a wonderful summer session.  As we say every year, "It went so fast."  We hope to see you next year.
