March 1st Early Bird Deadline and 2019 Summer updates

Dear Wachusett Families and Friends,

I hope the winter months are going well for you, and like us, you are looking ahead to summer and thinking about Wachusett.  While things are quiet on Lake Hortonia, we have been planning and recruiting for the 2019 camp season, which is just a few months ahead. If you haven't signed up yet, please remember that March 1st is the Early Bird deadline for a trip to the Great Escape theme park and 10% off of tuition.

Our recruiting team has been working hard to market camp to new and current families for 2019.  We have attended camp fairs in New England and Maryland and were pleased to be joined by some dedicated campers and staff to help promote Wachusett to prospective families. We would also really appreciate any help you could provide to spread the word about camp to people you may know with boys who would enjoy a summer at Wachusett. The following link: will take you to an electronic version of our brochure. Please take a look at it and feel free to forward it on to people who you think might be interested in our camp. Hopefully, anyone who looks at our brochure will be inspired to check out our website for further information. 

A couple of enhancements for next summer include: new basketball backboards, and a special three day trip during the week of July 14th to the old camp property in Holderness, NH, limited to ten boys in 7th grade or older, to hike and enjoy the Squam Lakes region. A glance at our brochure will show a daily schedule, which includes the return of "Store."  

So far, we have an enthusiastic contingency of staff returning for next summer who are looking forward to providing six weeks of entertaining, educational and fulfilling land and water activities including hiking, canoeing and  special trips to the surrounding areas. Matt Dandola will be sharing his expertise in staff development during preseason and will oversee the leadership programs for CITs and Junior Counselors. We are excited to announce the return of senior staff members: Ollie Martin, George Dobud, Peter Krogh, Nick (Chief) Avery and Matt Oxley.  Also, Una will be returning as our cook to provide delicious camp meals.

If you have any questions, suggestions,or would like any further information please feel free to e-mail me anytime.  We are looking forward to a great summer!

Unaliyi, Phil
