Spring Break '08!!

Come up and help Andy with the wall - he can't do it alone.

Ok everyone, T-minus one month. That’s right, we are counting it down until Spring Break ’08.

For those of you that have not heard, prepare for the exciting news. You might want to sit down for this.  We are planning a Spring Break Work Weekend!

This is your chance to come to Camp, during the Spring and hang out with your friends. There will be down time and opportunities to get out and enjoy the Northwoods, but it is also a working break. We have special projects and areas that need attention.

This is an idea that came from a number of seasonal staff as well as the retreat back in January. And it is a great idea. If you don’t have plans yet, consider coming to Camp and enjoy a bit of snow while it is still around. Who needs warm weather anyway? Also, the way the weekend is structured you can come here and still have the majority of your break doing something else.

We understand that these dates do not coincide with everyone’s break from school. If your break does not line up with ours, we would be happy to have you join us for any part that you can. In addition, we know many of you no longer attend school, you too are welcome to come for the Break. It is open to all, not just students.  Now, for the details:

What:
Help clean, organize, repair, restore, revitalize, rejuvenate, and refresh Camp. Have fun, ski, snowshoe, sauna, hang with other staff, and help Camp all at the same time.

Dates:
Friday, March 14th – Tuesday, March 18th

Who:
Open to all seasonal staff

Tasks:
  • Clean the climbing wall and holds
  • Organize the Equipment Room
  • Build Wannigans
  • Catalog and organize Outpost Maps in the MLC Library
  • Organize the PO
  • Among others (The list is in flux right now, things will be added and/or subtracted as we approach the dates. Nothing is set in stone, it’s all written in Jell-O as Mark would say.)
Housing and Meals:
Both will be provided by Camp

If you are planning on coming up, please send an RSVP e-mail to me – craig.sweet@manito-wish.org – so that we can start to generate a list and give meal counts to Don. (If you can’t make, send me a note anyway, I like hearing from folks and having e-mails in my in-box.)

Talk to your friends and organize car pools. Get excited and get up here, it will be a good time at the ol' Manito-wish.
