The crunch of fallen leaves underfoot and a distinct chill in the air point out to us that (a super dry) fall has landed at Latona. At this time of year here in the office we are busy looking for exciting ways to make camp better than each previous summer. Challenging staff training programs, new activity opportunities, construction, renovations and learning are all part of the big, exciting, fall plans. These past few weeks we have been working on developing summer camp calendar basing our offerings to you on the requests and wishes of our current campers, parents, and alumni, in the continued search for growth and bringing back the glory days on Latona Beach.

The North end of Gambier island is in Fall mode too with our very superstar, Roast Beef, working hard on a variety of projects to make camp a better place for everyone who comes to stay. We really can’t wait for you to experience the exciting progress that’s being made in the most fun place on earth! Everybody involved with the planning and organization here is brimming with excitement and are eagerly anticipating summer registration opening in the new year to see the all of the new and returning camper names come through the mailbox!

With schooldays in motion, Halloween is nearly upon us! What better opportunity than to use your legendary Camp Latona dress-up experience in order to score the most, and get the most candy! What are you going to dress up as? Who is going to be the Golden Gorilla? What about the Zorro, or the Spirit of Latona?

Send in your halloween costume snaps and the best one will win a sweet prize!

Who thinks this island would be a fun place to be at Halloween? Photos of spooky scenes there will be posted on our facebook page. Like the page to keep up to date with all of the latest from Camp!

Stay tuned for dates and rates, but as a sneak peak, early registrations saves more money for candy!

Stay Classy,

~ Chief
