A Note from the Executive Director

In the spirit of giving that we always associate with the Holidays, I’d like to direct your attention to the 2015 Wish List posted on the Camp Wyandot website. Our Camp Director, Connie Coutellier, has selected several items that always seem to be needed with each new camp season, yet always seem to be in short supply. Your willingness to provide one or more of the listed items goes a long way in helping us provide a quality camping experience while keeping our operating costs low.

Camp Wyandot, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) organization, and your gifts are tax deductible. Please check out our Wish List and make a selection to help our upcoming Camp season, and as always, thanks for your on-going support and generosity.

Greg Kellison
Executive Director

2014 Annual Luncheon Results

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated in making the 10th Annual Camp Wyandot Luncheon one of our most successful ever.

While there were many talented people involved, a very special thank you goes to Nikki Spretnak as Chair of the Luncheon Committee, Teresa Geron for producing a highly successful Silent Auction, Erika Senk for a superb job of event preparation and coordination, and Connie Coutellier and Sue Lavitchka for leading the Committee that produced great table decorations and Keepsake Bulb favors.

With leadership from the Camp Wyandot Board of Directors chaired by Jessica Pierfelice and with sincere thanks to our 15 Table Hosts,  there were 148 people in attendance and after expenses, we expect to net over $27,000 to help sustain the operations of Camp Wyandot.

These are exciting times for Camp Wyandot. The energy and passion among our membership and volunteers is palpable, and we are positioned for exciting growth in 2015. It’s an honor to lead an organization with such talented and gifted volunteers and staff members, and I firmly believe that the best days of Camp Wyandot lie ahead of us.

Thanks to each one of you!
