Points to share
  • Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial kickoff of summer
  • A great time and place to get away with the family
  • A variety of packages and accommodations are available
Keep a List, Check it Multiple Times

It's really helpful to create a spreadsheet of campers from your church(es) who will be going to Sky Lake (or any Upper New York and/or Susquehanna Camp and Retreat Center) this summer. At a minimum, include the camper's name and what session they'll be attending. Why? With this list you can:
  • check in with families to make sure they're all set (especially helpful for families who might struggle financially--particularly if you or someone else from your church can provide assistance with purchasing some of the incidentals needed for camp. Keep in mind that we keep some sleeping bags, flashlights, etc. on hand here for campers to borrow)
  • create a reminder to send each camper a card/note while they're at camp (it's always great to receive physical mail from home. Our mailing address is at the bottom of this email)
  • check in with campers after they've returned from camp
  • more easily recruit these campers to help lead part of your Camp and Retreat Sunday next year!
