As I sit in my California home, I am dreaming of again returning to the shores of Cobbossecontee Lake for another Pilgrim Lodge summer. I am blessed to be able to return for a second season as the interim director. I observed, participated and learned and now get to return, bringing some new thoughts and programming while keeping the best of our Pilgrim Lodge traditions. The love and acceptance that all feel when at Pilgrim Lodge will always remain. Join us again as we participate again in that loving community.
Know that we will be keeping all that makes Pilgrim Lodge special while expanding opportunities for new activities and ways to engage all of the space at Pilgrim Lodge. We have many returning summer staff, deans and counselors full of energy as we engage the summer's theme of "Peace Works: Empowering the Next Generation of Peacemakers." I cannot think of a better place for us all to be in this particular time in history than at camp discussing peace and actively engaging play, prayer, arts, music, and friendship to learn more about what it means to be a Peacemaker.
My dog Gouda and I will be arriving early for full time residence in Maine in April, watching the sunsets throughout the summer as they move from one side of the lake to the other being sure to land right between the islands for us to enjoy in the middle of the summer.
