Camp Activities Specialist Bulletin #5

Star Date: May 25, 2019 Greetings Readers! Since our last update, camp life has become unbelievably busy. We had been thinking that Olivia needed a four-pawed canine friend to help her feel more comfortable.

The universe delivered not …

Campfire Tales

Aleia O’Reilly, here. I’m Robert’s wife and recently designated “Camp Activities Specialist,” here to introduce Campfire Tales. This idea has developed over years of Robert offering raffle and silent auction items for local fundraisers. Winners were able to join the creative process by naming characters before the story was written. . . Such fun! Blinky, Leila, and Father Finnegan are a few so named. Most recently Robert offered a gift card in which the auction …
