When I look back on my years as a camper, and then a counselor at Camp Little Notch, I realize that in those few weeks of each summer I did most of my growing. The mix of cooperative interaction, physical challenge, and connection with the natural world was vital to my emerging identity. Camp pushed me to find my strengths. It offered me a new way of seeing myself, and I can honestly say that I would not be the person I am today if it not for my experiences at Little Notch.
Little Notch is special. The property is remote and private, affording a sense of serenity and distance from the outside world. The land itself is pristine and the philosophy and traditions of CLN promote self-esteem, empowerment, and the skills for creating and living in a peaceful world. This special place has produced generations of young women who know they can make a difference in the world. This is evidenced by our amazing grassroots organization that has come together to save Camp Little Notch.
We have a vision of revitalizing our girls summer camp program and offering year round opportunities for individuals, families and groups seeking a place to work together, get unplugged, commune with nature, network, be inspired, relax and have fun.
We must get down to business now and complete the purchase of the property so we can move forward with our vision. I am hoping to reach my goal of raising $5,000 by Jan 9, 2015. If you feel moved to contribute to my friends and family campaign, I thank you in advance. You will be supporting me in a cause I am passionate about and you will be preserving a small gem in the Adirondack wilderness for generations to come.
