It's March Madness at Camp Wa Wa Segowea!

It's time!   March at camp means that:  

1- It's a sure bet that there's still snow at camp
2- Close to 100 days till the first full day of camp.
3- It's time for March Madness!  

The NCAA Basketball Tournament begins this week, and it's time to make your picks.   Now in our 7th year, the Segowea 64 NCAA Brackets means you can make your picks on who you think will win the NCAA's, and know you're helping to send a kid to camp!  For the details on what to do next, simply click HERE.  It's a fun time to be had and you don't have to know college basketball to participate!  Your picks do have to be made by noon on Thursday, March 19th, as games get underway that same day.  Money raised will go towards camper scholarships meaning kids will be able to enjoy that truly unique Segowea experience.  So make your picks, maybe win some money and support camp all at the same time!

In other camp news, the Northwest CT YMCA and Smith Park of New York got together a couple times for different reasons.  In January, members of Smith Park,  the Northwest Y and Camp Advisory committee members all got together at the Y to discuss Camp in a strategy session.  Then earlier this month, Smith Park of New York held their annual meeting and during it, heard a presentation on 2014's summer from Greg Brisco, CEO of the Y and got a look ahead to the summer of 2015 from new Camp Director Randle Cassady.  Both meetings provided a positive outlook moving forward for all parties and both can't wait for the summer to get here!

There is still quite a bit of snow around camp and below are a few pictures of it!

See you at camp!
