2022 Year In Review - Community Programming


In the Community Programming department, we were proud to have functioned at a VERY high level in 2022 while understaffed. During the summer, we had to modify our summer camps to accommodate for lack of staffing (we eliminated Camp Eco Fun and moved counselors to Camp Vail and Pre Kamp Vail). In the Imagination Station, we had approximately 2,000 participants over the year, with 900 participants in just three months of summer alone.

Children at Santa's Workshop participating in craft activities
We were very excited to have Santa's Workshop back in person for the first time since 2019! It was virtual the previous two years, and it was great to have kids back at the Imagination Station to visit with Santa and make crafts. For 2022, we had 74 families participate!
