Greetings!

Thanks for agreeing to be a Campbassador. We're looking forward to working with you to help share the Sky Lake story!

Over the next few months, this list will be reasonably active as we gear up for events in May as well as summer camp. (So between now and summer, expect an email from us early each week.) Once autumn arrives, we'll slow down to one or two times per month.

If you have any questions, comments, or ideas, please be sure to let me know. We want this to be a collaborative effort!

With gratitude,

Matt Williams
Sky Lake Director

CAMPBASSADOR TIP OF THE WEEK
Sky Lake or skylake?

Our official name is Sky Lake Camp and Retreat Center. So when you are writing about us, please ensure that "Sky" and "Lake" are two separate words. You'll often see us combine the two words together (along with the last two digits of the current year) to create our preferred hashtag*: #skylake18

*hashtags will be a tip in the next edition of Campbassador
