The CT Camping Association held its Annual Meeting and Dinner at Camp Hazen YMCA on Tuesday December 3rd. At this meeting, we elected new officers and board members for 2014 and awarded the annual Bernie Moore Scholarship. This year’s recipient was Rebecca Himmelstein from Camp Laurel Girl Scout Camp in Lebanon, CT.
We also announced details of a professional development scholarship fund in honor of Allen Beavers. The scholarship, named after Allen, will provide funding for camp professionals to attend professional development events, meetings, and conferences. It is a great way to honor Allen! You would always see him at events and conferences with camera in hand, as he loved everything about them! We feel honored to have worked with Allen and humbled at the amount of work he did for summer camps in CT and in New England. The CT Camping Association is looking back on a great 2013 and moving forward into an even greater 2014. Submitted by Keith Garbart, CCA President, Camp Director, Camp Winding Trails.
