Winter Solstice

The winter solstice is approaching marking the beginning of winter and the shortest days of the year. As we settle into our comfy warm clothes and sip hot cocoa, 2016, a tumultuous year to say the least, begins to fade into the background while 2017 begins to crest the horizon and present itself to us all. The last weeks of December are a time to reflect on the past year and hopefully begin to formulate an intentional plan for the upcoming year.

At Winnebago, we have just completed a series of reunions across the U.S. Campers, counselors and parents came together, thumbed through summer yearbooks, reminisced on the past summer and played games.Thank you to all who attended and those of you who couldn’t make it, know you were in our thoughts and your presence was missed.

In this time where spring flowers and warm weather seem so far away, know that preparation for camp has already begun. A beautiful Maine fall allowed our maintenance crew to make many improvements. We’ve already begun to hear back from last years counselors and it looks like we will have a significant returning group from last summer’s exceptional staff. We have spent the Fall reflecting on the past summer in order to set course towards an exceptional upcoming summer.

Enjoy these last few weeks of 2016, take time to reflect, appreciate those you love and enjoy your winter break and holiday season!
