I hope you all have enjoyed the blog this summer. Alex Fang has done a great job of keeping you up to date on all the camp happenings so far. I asked for a little space today to express my thanks to all of you for helping make the summer great to date. Our staff has done a great job in running a fun, safe program. Camp would not be what it is without a hardworking Administrative staff as well. Emma Knox and Mark Clark have worked very hard making sure everything runs smoothly, from scheduling to laundry, transportation to clothing and most importantly the care and safety of our campers and staff. My father, Jerry, is also a great help in keeping things running smoothly here, with over 50 years of camp experience he knows it all.
The final player in our team, Karina Gershowitz, will be leaving Camp Tall Timbers to start a career in teaching in the Washington DC area. Karina has been with camp off and on for 9 years and the last 3 working full time on camp marketing, summer programming and our Rookie and Tryout programs. She is a great organizer and has been the key person in upgrading our social media presence and follow-up contact with our clients. While Karina will be missed we are confident that she will always have some contact and connection to camp: she met her husband Jason here and was married at camp as well, so that should help. I am sure you join the rest of us in wishing Karina continued good health and success in her new endeavor.
