Summer may feel far away to many of you, but here in the Everwood Day Camp office, summer feels like it is just around the corner…and we can’t wait!
The winter months are filled with a lot of planning, preparation, meetings, events and much more. Below is a list of a few of the many things we are working on at Everwood this winter:
- We are hosting Open Houses at Everwood for new, returning and prospective campers along with their families and friends. This is one of the highlights of the winter for us! It is always so nice to see past campers and meet people interested in learning more about Everwood. Our next Open House is this Sunday, January 13th, from 11am-3pm. Bring the whole family to play games, warm up by the campfire, enjoy s’mores, jump in the bouncy castle, create an art project, get an amazing balloon from Drewsballoons, go on a tour of camp and meet some of our incredible staff.
- We continue to review the feedback we received from our 2012 Everwood community. This valuable information is used to help shape our 2013 program, policies and procedures. As the 2013 program comes together, keep a look out for some fun and exciting new activities coming to Everwood this summer!
- We are meeting with prospective campers and their families at Camp Fairs and at Everwood for tours of Camp.
- We are corresponding with Everwood’s A-W-E-S-O-M-E returning staff members and meeting with potential staff members for summer 2013.
- We are planning for improvements and changes to our beautiful campus that will be taking place
this spring. These projects include some exciting new program areas!
- We are hosting a free educational speaker series in conjunction with the Sharon Education Foundation bringing expert speakers into the community to discuss hot topic issues regarding child and youth development. The first in the series, a film screening and community discussion of Where Do the Children Play? is taking place in the Everwood Lodge on Tuesday, January 29th.

We sure are busy and looking forward to the sunny days of Everwood 2013!!!
