My Debt to Camp: A Message from Jim Astrove

Hello Everyone,

The 98th summer of camp is in full swing. There’s been a Big Captain election, trips have gone out and returned, boys have been to Pemaquid Point and the Allagash and played in the first Patrol Game. Final Campfire is around the corner. It happens that fast, as we know. But we cannot afford to let this summer, or any summer for that matter, slip by without considering its great value to both the boys and our larger community.

We all know and feel how camp has helped make us the people we are today. Most of us reading this newsletter had the opportunity to spend summers on Echo Lake soaking in all of the sights and experiences: the docks, the cry of the lonely loon, the friendships that were fostered in the bunks and are flourishing still.

I feel fortunate to have had my summers as a boy at Winnebago. I cannot imagine who I would be if I hadn’t known Uncle Bennett and heard his earnest wisdom. I find it hard to picture myself today had I not paddled the Allagash or played basketball on a Har-Tru court or watched the embers glow in a fire pit at the Council Ring. Simply put: I owe.

Serving on our WAA board is an honor. The people who work on our board are all dedicated to creating more opportunities for our scholarship boys. It’s not enough to have great memories of camp. We need to give new generations of boys, especially those who couldn’t otherwise attend camp, their own memories: the site of a thunderstorm racing across Echo Lake, the chance to hike and paddle through the Maine wilderness, the gift of becoming a Winnebagan.

And how do we do this? We raise money for scholarships. We are in the second year of a five-year capital campaign, and we are also just two years away from celebrating our 100th year of camp. We want you to keep your connections with your old bunkmates current and real and growing. But we also need your help to keep our scholarship program growing too. Pass it along and carry on…

With Winnebagan Love and Friendship,
Jim Astrove
