We're less than a month away from welcoming the new and returning campers to begin the Segowea Summer season of 2012! The Camp staff is getting the camp ready and soon more staff will arrive and begin lifeguard training. The sessions are filling up quickly, but there's still time for campers to register. Registration is very easy to do, and can be accomplished online at www.cdymca.org/locations/CampWaWaSegowea/Home.aspx. If you can not register online, you can always contact Camp director Kat Fitzpatrick via email at email@example.com or via phone 518-656-9462 Ext 6632.
At camp, there's already been a couple Open Houses, but for the month of June, there's still the chance to visit camp every Sunday until camp opens on the 24th! Open House dates are June 3rd, 10th and 17th at a time of 2:00-4:00 pm. If you'd like to come up and visit the camp for a first time or return to see the improvements, please let Kat Fitzpatrick know.
We also have one last work weekend left coming in a couple weeks, on Saturday, June 16th and Sunday, June 17th. We expect a good turnout for this work weekend, so please consider joining us. There will be a lot to do! For this, we also ask that you RSVP and to contact Norm Button at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the camp directly at 413-229-9110.
We want to thank all the volunteers and Friends of Segowea that have come out and volunteered their time in May for the work weekend and Open Houses. We've accomplished quite a bit!
Here's some pictures from May's Open Houses and Work Weekend.

It's a ways away, but we also have scheduled fall work weekends on September 22-23 and October 20-21st.
Hope to see you at one of these!
