September State News - Connecticut Camping Association (CCA)

cca logoAt our September Board meeting we discussed how to honor Allen Beavers through an award or scholarship and formed a committee to explore the most proper way to honor him for everything he did for youth camping in CT and throughout New England.  The committee will be reporting back to the board at our meeting in October to further discuss.  We are also planning for some Fall camp tours to be held in October with a date and place TBD, included in the tours this year will be a property manager/maintenance portion.  So in addition to a tour of the programming aspect of the facility the staff that take care of and maintain our beautiful facilities will also take a tour of maintenance facilities and buildings to share ideas and create a network of their own.  We are very excited about the program  and look forward information coming out soon about the where and when. We are also pleased to announce that we are accepting applications for the Bernie Moore Scholarship and all materials can be found on our website www.ctcamps.org , the scholarship is for $500.00 and any staff member from a CT camp is eligible to apply and it will be awarded at our Annual Meeting on December 5th at Camp Hazen in Chester, CT.
