Greetings from Kilcoo Camp,
I am so proud and happy to tell you what a remarkable two months we had up at camp this summer! “We did it”! was the sentiment at the end of the August sessions. The support of all the Kilcoo families was extraordinary, my family and I are forever grateful.
Our 90th summer was filled with all of the things that we love about camp: the camaraderie, the traditions, the energy, the life lessons we all learn everyday… We call it simply, Kilcoo Magic. I must commend our Staff, LITs and Campers on their loyalty leading into and during the summer. They never wavered in their belief that camp would operate and be successful. Their passion and commitment will stay with me forever.
The Kilcoo community has always been supportive, loyal, positive, resilient and a true embodiment of the Kilcoo spirit. This year especially, I owe them an immense thank you. Whether you are an alumnus, camper, staff, leader in training, or parent, you all are a part of Kilcoo and Kilcoo is a part of you. For those of you who are not yet part of this remarkable community, I must mention that the Kilcoo spirit shines brightest in tough times, and this year certainly no exception.
So now we look towards the summer of 2022. We have so many commitments of returning Staff and LITs and Campers and I am very excited for the future.
I welcome any of you reading this who are new to Kilcoo, if you are a returning veteran, or an Alumnus, to please email me anytime through firstname.lastname@example.org to ask questions, make a comment or just say hi!
I hope you all have a safe, happy and productive Fall season. I am so proud of what we accomplished together in the summer of 2021… and when we sing these words together in the Lodge: “When you walk through a storm hold your head up high”, we know that “you’ll never walk alone” in our community.
All the best from my family and I, and cheers from Gull Lake,
David “Lub” Latimer
