What makes Segowea, Segowea?
It's a new day, a new start, again. We've had a few new beginnings through the years here at Camp Wa Wa Segowea. The camp moved to its present location on Foley Hill Road 85 years ago- a new beginning. Boys attended camp and the only females were the ones that came on Visitors Day, until the camp became coed- a new beginning. The camp went quiet for a few years, and then reopened with great fanfare in 2010- a new beginning. And now, 2013, our 100th Anniversary Year, opening with a new partner, the Northwest CT YMCA- a new beginning. Through it all, Wa Wa has endured in the hearts and minds of many, many friends and supporters. And we can not thank you enough!
With this new beginning, the task at hand for us, is to attempt to explain what makes Segowea, Segowea, and share these thoughts/ideas/beliefs/traditions with our new partner, the Northwest Y. They are aware of the passion for camp by friends and alumni, but it's always helpful to put this passion into words. The past two blog posts have been about this topic in a roundabout sort of way. Sarah Perks did an excellent job with her photo essay of camp, and the last post was made up of Smith Park Board members and their reason for involvement. Now, we're looking to hear from you.
So we thought we would ask you! What makes Segowea, Segowea?
Whether it's just a few words or a whole list of things, please feel free to include anything and everything! Is it the people? Is it Harmon Pond? Is it that wake-up call?
