It was wonderful to see you all at Fair this past weekend, a resounding success, and fun had by all. For myself it was a time for reflection, although I was in the middle of it all, it was wonderful to see how harmoniously our community operates. Your children have acquired many skills at camp this summer in all of the various activities offered, but what I hope you will witness is something that can not be measured. Each camper has learned how to live and build a community that is safe to live in. They are shown how to be accountable for their belongings, participate in chores, express their feelings openly, and learn how to resolve conflict.
There is a closeness that can not be described, a trust that runs deep, and friendships that are both formed and strengthened. The children learn how to support each other through numerous challenges. For some it may be homesickness or adjusting to living closely in a space with people you do not know. For others it may be as simple as getting into the water for swim lessons, or gaining the courage to climb the chimney. Your children have accomplished much this summer, and I am sad to see them and my wonderful staff go home. I would like to thank you for sharing your children with us, I have cherished each of their unique spirits, and marveled at their growth here at Indian Brook.
