A little piece of heaven
From the shores of the Charleston Creek and Wicomico River in Maryland, the Salvatorian sponsored Camp St. Charles continues to thrive. Faced with challenges this spring to plan amid the Covid 19 crisis, the Camp is at near capacity for the 2020 summer season and has some exciting updates to share.
The new pool, dedicated to Fr. Glen Willis SDS last summer, will be a highlight for the children who no longer have to wear pool shoes to swim. A new dock, raised higher up, is now slip-resistant and easy to clean. After last summers’ concern for the safety of our campers and staff due to heat index topping 115 degrees, with little relief even in the evenings, air conditioners have been installed in all cabins for use when necessary. Also, heating units have been installed to keep access for off-season rental to groups in the fall and spring accessible. Staff is planning for another new escape room theme. In prior years campers have figured out who started a food fight and engaged in a wild-west theme.
Recognition programs return at the suggestion of camp alumni who recalled fond memories of canoeing challenges as St. Charles campers. These challenges will give kids, especially older campers who return year after-year, an opportunity to earn patches for swimming, canoeing, archery, and more. In 2021, Camp St. Charles will be celebrating its 70th anniversary, and they need help locating as many alumni as possible. If you are an alumnus or know of anyone who is please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
