In 2009, MKDC opened for it’s first summer for a 5-week season with 6 staff, 20 kids, a tupperware bin of arts supplies, and some borrowed sports equipment. (And WHITE staff shirts. What was I thinking?)
This summer, our 5th Anniversary, (already?!) we’ll open for a 7-week season with 10 staff, a capacity of 48 kids per week, and an amazing child-centered program that we continue to grow and tweak.
And this little guy here in the potato sack? He’s going to be STAFF this year.
That’s right, my little camper babies are growing up! For the first time this summer, we will have a CIT on staff who came through the complete ranks of camper, LIT, and LIT II. It’s an amazing feeling, and one I can’t wait to replicate again and again.
The best part was his description of returning to camp as an LIT II: “It was like home.” Your future campers are some very lucky kids!
