Sherry Mernick's planned retirement will occur this spring

Posted

A professional educator, Sherry first joined ACA Accredited Cape Cod Sea Camps (CCSC) in 1968, serving as a counselor, head counselor, supervisor and, eventually, resident camp director.  Sherry will be remembered as a good friend of campers and counselors alike, with a remarkable penchant for remembering names, birthdays and - in some cases - even social security numbers.  Nationally and regionally, Sherry served the broader camping community, earning a reputation as a passionate advocate for the summer camp experience.  

Throughout her years at camp, Sherry enjoyed teaching a variety of activities, including archery, swimming and waterskiing and created the inimitable character Hepzibah, sharing Cape Cod lore and an opportunity for every member of the camp community to recognize friendship and good deeds through the awarding of Wampum.

Nancy Garran, Executive Director of CCSC remarked: 

We are extraordinarily grateful for Sherry's decades of service to camp and will miss her positive, calming influence in our daily lives. All are invited to share a special "Sherry" moment by emailing Info@capecodseacamps.com or mailing to CCSC, PO Box 1880, Brewster, MA  02631 by March 1st.  Stories, pictures, poems and well wishes will be compiled in a scrapbook for Sherry to remember all her friends from camp.  Having shared a cabin, council ring, winter home and office space with Sherry for all her years at CCSC, I know you join with me in extending our best "How Do" wishes to Sherry as she prepares for a long and much-deserved vacation.
