Dear Campers and Families,
Welcome to YMCA Camp Wheeler! My name is Tim Gabbard and this will be my fifth year In charge of Camp Wheeler for one of the best summer programs ever! I say this because of the staff, campers, and families that make YMCA Camp Wheeler Amazing! I want to thank all of you who gave us feedback last year, either verbally or through our surveys. We really appreciate the feedback and use it to help make the camp experience the best it can be. One new feature this year is our new amplitheater!!! We are still providing snack at 4:30PM for aftercare! We will also be focusing on improving our communication with families so we can share our camp happenings with you. These are just two out of the many changes we are making! And of course there are some new and exciting camps coming in 2017 that will enhance our camp offerings.
The focus of summer camp will be on friendship, fun, and giving campers the opportunities to try new and different things. We will continue with the weekly passport clubs and will implement some changes to make them a positive experience for all campers because we feel they are an important part in helping campers try new things, set goals, and give them a sense of achievement. There will be a variety of theme dates, special events, and wacky Wednesdays throughout the summer combined with the more traditional camp activities including swimming, arts & crafts, nature, camp games, songs, skits, and color games! I am excited, the counselors are excited, and we are all looking forward to a fantastic summer with you!
We strongly encourage you to come to our open house dates! You will get to meet some of our camp staff and get a great tour of our facility and our outside activity areas. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me at any time at 860-793-9631 x127 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you this summer! It’s going to be a blast!!!
