Hello, Camp Warren!
I am so excited to be here and officially introduce myself to you. My name is Laura Villano and as Dave mentioned above, I've worn many hats in the Camp Warren community - camper, staff member, board member and now executive director. It is truly an honor to serve our community in this role. My experience as a camper taught me how to be self-reliant, open-minded, and what it means to be a good friend. As a staff member, I learned how to be a servant leader and a steward of the wilderness. My time on the community board solidified how important it is to give your time to a community that gave so much to you.
Camp Warren has had truly amazing leadership over the last 20 years in the executive director and program director roles. I am grateful for their service, wisdom, and the commitment to each one of you. I hold their work in the highest regard. I am here to uphold over 90 years of tradition, while continuing to evolve our programming to meet the needs of the community we serve. And this is when I turn this letter into a thank you note. Thank you for your continued support of Camp Warren. Thank you for believing in the camp experience and helping us get more campers to camp each summer and ensuring our programming is of the highest standard. We wouldn't be here today without you.
I would love to hear from you - hear your Camp Warren story. And if you find yourself near Half Moon Lake, we would love for you to stop by.
Looking forward to connecting with you in the near future.
