2013 Message from Patti Sampson, Director of Camp Tidnish
As the Camp Tidnish office gets ready for another exciting season at camp, I just want to take a moment to reflect on what an amazing year it has been.
I’ve had such a great time getting to know all of the campers, families, staff, volunteers, community members, and alumni that contribute to the Camp Tidnish magic. Over and over again I was struck by the incredible sense of community and comradery that you have created.
Thank you for welcoming me into your Camp Tidnish family.
Looking forward, summer 2013 is off to a great start with some amazing staff lined up and some exciting new programs kicking off this season. I am so excited to continue to create new memories and relationships with our returning campers as well as new generations of CT campers.
To those of you who are returning, welcome home, and to our new campers, we can’t wait for you to join us and share the magic of Camp Tidnish.
See you at camp!
