Give the gift that keeps on giving…Camp (posted by Lee Biear)

Happy Holidays!  

 When I was a little girl, my parents always knew what I wanted every year – a week at residential camp to spread my wings and try new things.  The problem was a week just was not enough.  I craved one more week to master my dive, be the star of campfire, and spend time with my new friends.  Luckily, we found Camp Woodland and I was able to do all of these things and much, much more.  Today, my parents and I look back and wonder where I would be today if it was not for camp.
  • Would I have been adventurous enough to travel to Costa Rica and improve the lives of local farmers?

    • Would I have been ambitious enough to meet the President of a developing country?

  • Would I have been confident enough to get Masters Degree and consult for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency?
I know I would have many regrets, if it was not for my extended experience at Camp Woodland.  The Jordan Family provided an environment which allowed me to dream big…and fulfill this dream as an adult.
As your celebrating the holiday with your family and close friends,  we hope you can keep giving the gift of camp to your family this summer, and keep dreaming big!  
Camp Woodland Love,
