Dear Manito-wish Community,
I’m writing to let you all know that March 13th will be my last day as Summer Program Director. I will be moving to Madison to spend my first summer in ten years not at Camp. It’s a big move, and I’m excited for the opportunities ahead.
It’s been a wonderful, challenging, and rewarding three and a half years as Summer Program Director at Manito-wish. It’s been great to work year round with such motivated team of individuals, have the chance to help mold and shape our future leaders, and meet hundreds of amazing people that find themselves connected with Camp.
I will be taking my next step in life to work for REI in Madison, WI as their Outreach Specialist, planning clinics and events for the Madison area, and as the job description reads “building community relationships and fostering volunteerism within the local community”.
On top of this I will be looking at getting back into leadership facilitation work, which I’m very excited about. (Hopefully Mark will hire me to facilitate a few programs!)
Up through March 13th I will be focused on my responsibilities at Summer Program Director and will work closely with Drew and the rest of the program team to help make this a smooth transition for everyone. A succession plan has been put in place to assure that all summer program planning and preparation will be taken care of by the program team up through the summer - including finding a new Summer Program Director to begin this spring.
By no means are my past ten years with Camp coming to an end. I look forward to being part of this great community known as Manito-wish for many years to come. It’s been a pleasure to serve this community in such an esteemed position, and I look forward to this next chapter in life in the Madison area.
Thank you all for your friendship, support, and caring over my past few years. It's the Manito-wish community that truly makes this place remarkable, and again, I'm grateful to have served you all in this position. And if you’re in the Madison area, give me a call - it would be great to catch up.
