Thanks to our friends, supporters, and of course, campers, we had another wonderful summer here at Jameson Camp! This summer included all of our favorites like archery, rock-climbing and creekwalking and of course, lots of love and learning. We had a record number of 596 camp sessions this summer! Since some of our campers love camp so much, they come more than one week this means we had amazing 482 campers!

We look forward to serving more kids as our programs grow and expand and each summer proves just how much we can do! This summer include some amazing themed weeks such as “Explorers and Scientists,” “Time Travel,” “Camping with the Stars,” among others. These themes offered our campers exciting new ways to learn about themselves, each other and the world around them.

We owe these cool themes to our hardworking Summer Staff. More than half of our Summer 2017 Staff were returners and many of them were also former Youth Leaders, and have gotten to know Jameson Camp firsthand. Among them, they have more than 100 years of experience with our programs. How incredible is that? Even our campers have said that the counselors are like “big brother and sisters” who “accept you for you.”

In addition to our regular camp sessions, this was also our 23rd summer offering Tataya Mato, a radio story about which was recently featured on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered show. Summer 2017 allowed us to continue to partner with great organizations, work with wonderful people and add even more campers to our community. Thanks to all of those people for a great summer, and we’re looking forward to an even better next one!
