This year I am running in Reach The Beach because Calumet was a huge part of my life, I want to run with the other runners from Nativity Lutheran Church and Knute asked me! I was a camper from 1964 - 1972. I joined the staff as a junior counselor in 1973. From 1974 - 1976 I worked in the Wilderness Department. I was the bus driver in 1977. When Calumet went year round I was the first year round assistant director. I want to make sure that kids can have the same experiences I had at Calumet!
Calumet is taking part in it's 10th Reach The Beach: a two-day, 200 mile race across New Hampshire. This year, we have 72 runners, 12 drivers, and a bunch of support participating in the run that starts at Bretton Woods and ends at Hampton Beach. Donations to support Reach The Beach go directly to help Calumet.
In 2018 Calumet provided campership awards in the amount of $110 to EVERY SINGLE camper, and additional support for those kids who needed special help covering the fees. This Reach the Beach fundraiser allows Calumet’s fee to be as low as possible thereby keeping in within reach for every family. Any amount you can give truly makes a huge difference. Thanks so much for your support!
