It is an exciting time of year as we are putting the final details in place and getting ready to open camp for the summer of 2015! We have an incredible staff who are dedicated to helping our campers learn and grow by trying new things and improving in the activities they already love. The number one goal of our counselors is to provide quality instruction to our extremely talented and bright campers. During the summer, everyone at camp becomes a great team working toward the unified goal of “making the whole camp happier for our being here.”
We’re looking forward to an unbelievable summer in all of our program areas, and we are so excited to welcome back many of our program area leaders. Miranda Bohl will be coming back as the Head of Riding, and has been working diligently in choosing new horses and bringing back many from last summer. We are also really excited to have our much-loved Lisa Malcom returning as the Head of Athletics to build on our intercamp games and tournaments, and continue to have quality instruction in all field sports.
We hope all of you are enjoying the start of Spring. Camp is right around the corner. Are you counting down the days to summer camp just like we are?
Tony met many new campers this winter who are looking forward to becoming Lochearn Lassies. They can’t wait to meet on Opening Day, to walk to Baker’s, and to gather at Campfire Hill in the evenings. The girls hail from New Orleans, Los Angeles, New Canaan, Westport, Rye, and New York City. Two reunions in New Canaan and New York City capped off a bustling winter.
Life has been busy in Post Mills. The year-round team at Camp has done an incredible job of updating the sewing studio. New worktables, lights, and storage bins will give the popular sewing studio a fresh new feel. The tables and chairs have been moved back into Highland Hall, and you can almost hear the singing from happy staff and campers echoing off of Lake Fairlee.
The Lochearn leadership team enjoyed a productive weekend at the winter office in Florida. The annual summit was filled with reflections from 2014 and enthusiastic goal setting for an exciting summer. A dedicated and child-centered staff has been hired and is excited about cabin life and offering great instruction in the program areas.
Good luck with wrapping up the school year and get ready for an amazing summer in the beautiful state of Vermont. We can’t wait to see you at Camp!
Dear Camp Families,
We were very fortunate to be able to spend another Thanksgiving week in Vermont. Pulling up to camp and driving through the gates felt like we were coming home. The holidays are a time to revel in the magic of Lochearn. The snow gave our family the opportunity to appreciate the winter treats in Vermont! Grilling a turkey while enjoying the view of Lake Fairlee has now become a family tradition. It was great to see the year-round maintenance staff. After enjoying our days at Lochearn, we made the short trip to Stowe to enjoy some time as a family skiing and snowboarding. The conditions were perfect!
The fall and winter have have been busy, as we have been meeting with new families who are looking forward to joining Lochearn. Tony has made trips to New York City, Boston and Philadelphia. While in Boston, Tony was able to have dinner with Lindsey Howe and to meet with Lochearn’s new clothing provider, Amerasport.
We are counting down the days to having “an amazing day in the beautiful state of Vermont!”
