What a summer 2012 was for Dream Day! 6 amazing weeks of families seemed to fly by, packed with plenty of giggles, s’mores, swimming, and smiles. We’re working on putting together a full album online of all the best images but in the meantime, be sure to check out our Facebook page for videos and pictures from each week.
We are thrilled to report the promotion of veteran staff Sarah Phenix as the 2012 Director and Chris Brewer as the Assistant Director. They led a fabulous team of staff to a truly successful summer. Time and again we say, our very best resource year after year is in fact our staff and volunteers.
And speaking of volunteers, it is hard to know even where to begin in thanking the many many individuals, clubs, and businesses that were so generous with time, money, and goodwill this year. Civic clubs like the Kiwanis, Lions, Moose, and Rotary are incredible supporters to Dream Day camp efforts! Bank of America employees came out not once but TWICE this year to help with facilities. And NStar once again sent a fabulous group of hard workers to prep the camp facility this spring. Americorps Cape Cod volunteers did trail work and helped with the playground surface. Indeed it takes a village
Our new features the playground and the ball field are incredible assets to programming. The long list of volunteers that brought these to fruition includes [but is in NO WAY limited to] star community members like Chris Cooney and Mike Bossetti.
The Mass Moose on Bikes fundraised and presented the camp with two brand new beach wheelchairs! And the students of Station Avenue Elementary School once again raised funds for the camp — this time surpassing their record to over $4000! Unbelievable!!
Volunteers are also integral to opening, closing, and operations in general. People like Dianne doing arts and crafts and Tom helping with fishing are special people to all of us: campers and staff alike.
Rays of sunshine come in many forms. We feel like we live in the sunniest place on earth.
Now, what is up next?
