THE STORY:

 

When Nora Saunders launched the Camp Susquehannock Alumni Challenge three years ago, I recognized that, based on my years as a camper from '97-'02 and as counsellor from '03-'04, contributing time and money into this campaign reaps tremendous returns.

To put it bluntly, my peer group at Camp Susquehannock was filled with freak athletes. As a perpetual big boy at a camp without any contact sports [not including crashing the boards and bodying people up in street hockey] I was at a disadvantage.  Therefore, I was often in a lower competition level than campers my own age.  

Rather than letting this knock to my ego negatively affect my disposition, I learned to embrace my role as a leader during competition by exuding sportsmanship. When I was not on the field or court, I flourished in the craft shop, listened to and shared music, learned curse words in French or Spanish, and avoided interacting with girls at dances with our sister camp [because they scared me to death].  Camp challenged me in a many of ways, and I am a stronger person because of it.  

Regardless of how much time it has been since we last spoke, those aforementioned athletic freaks are my brothers for life.  Because of them and the gifts Camp has given me, I serve on the Alumni Challenge committee, volunteer to prepare camp for the summer season, and I serve on Camp Susquehannock's Board of Directors. 

There is something compelling about a good investment. Hell, I'm no banker, and I probably buy more Starbucks than I should, but I do know that a magical place like Susquehannock deserves to be experienced by everyone. That is why I ask you to help me share this place with others by donating to my page in support of the Camp Susquehannock Scholarship Fund.
