    Letter from Anna (July 13, 2018)

    After all the anticipation and waiting, we were thrilled to open the gates on Sunday, so our amazing staff could whoop it up to welcome home a record 226 campers with hugs and high fives, showing everyone just how excited we are to have them back! I am over the moon to be together with our campers again because I know what an incredible summer is in store for them.

I was soon welcomed with open arms and […]

    Letter from Anna (June 29, 2018)

    I can hardly believe another week has come and gone at camp! The time is flying, but everyone – campers, counselors, and staff – is having the best summer ever! Fun, adventure, and terrific camp activities fill the days; talent shows, bonfires for s’mores, and bunk nights fill the evenings.

  • The Magic of Jacobs Camp: From the perspective of a first time staff member

    I arrived at camp during the morning on May 31, 2018. That first day was a blur, but I remember the end of it vividly. I was working in the office until around 10:30pm.
