Thankful for Camps Airy & Louise

November is upon us, and that means taking time to reflect on all that we have to be thankful for. Naturally, topping the list are presence of Camps Airy & Louise in our lives. We asked some of our staff to tell us what they are thankful for this year, and here are some of our favorite answers!

 

Jen Falik Rains “I am endlessly thankful for the people I’ve met and the friends I’ve made at camp (including my husband). I’m also grateful that in addition to being a camper, CIT and counselor many years ago, I am given the opportunity to return as an adult.”

Sara Berlin“I’m thankful for camp friends who become your family!”
