Hi everyone – we have decided not to have a Registration night for camp this year, but you can mail your form and deposit to Natalie or Jen. The deposit is $100 per camper, and the deadline for registrations is July 26th so we can have money in the bank to pay for the deposit for Camp Triumph.
Please contact Natalie or Jen via email or telephone for our mailing addresses.
Hi everyone –
Just a few details as you finish off your packing:
- Jen told me I got confused on the dress for the concert – so she would like everyone to bring a black shirt of some sort to wear on top, with whatever you would like to wear on the bottom… so please pack an extra clean black shirt for Thursday night’s concert.
- Make sure you have a sheet for on top of the mattress, plus your sleeping bag and pillow, it just means that you won’t have to be sleeping on a cold vinyl surface under your sleeping bag!
And remember that we are not at Camp Seggie this year, we’re at Camp Triumph – if you need directions, head towards Kensington and then continue on towards Malpeque, soon after Malpeque you will see signs for Cabot Beach Provincial Park. Follow those signs and you will see Camp Triumph on the left right after you pass Malpeque Harbour and right before you enter the provincial park. Whenever you are coming (Sunday night or Monday morning), please be gentle with the dirt driveway and be careful where you park. We will most likely be in the main lodge on Sunday night and in the dining hall on Monday morning when you arrive, so come find us! If you need it, the address of the camp is 407 King Street.
There is a telephone number at the camp – 836-4668. There is no wireless internet there for students unfortunately, so we will be unplugged for a certain amount this week!
I’m looking forward to the week and hope you are too – as I said in my previous email, any parents who are available for kitchen help would be greatly appreciated, especially ones who wouldn’t mind coming to help for lunch on Thursday (12:30pm) and stay into the afternoon to help us get everyone over to Indian River for our dress rehearsal and picnic supper. Please let me know if you can help.
Many thanks and see you soon!
This is just a quick post to let you all know that I will be emailing out a schedule within the next few days (hopefully by Monday August 20 at the latest) for camp and what we get to look forward to, I hope you are all praying for sunshine so we can enjoy the supervised beach at Cabot Park! We have had a few staffing changes, most annoying to me being that my parents are unable to attend due to my mother breaking her ankle (bah!) but everything is looking really good for the camp, with wonderful menus and lots of musical learning going to be happening… And not long now, only 10 days more!
I will also be emailing out a packing list to everyone so you can get started laying things out in preparation…
I am trying to finalize numbers for tickets for the concert on August 26th at Indian River. If you remember, Singing Strings students and their families can get $10 tickets to the 7:30pm concert at Indian River on Sunday, August 26th. This works out well for those of us going to camp, as we can drop things at the camp, go to the concert and then return to the camp and sleep there in preparation for the crazy camp week. But for those of you not going to camp, these tickets are also available and I would encourage you all to attend what I am sure will be a fabulous concert!
Please let Natalie know via email if you would like tickets by Monday, August 20 as we need to let the box office know what tickets we require. This is a great deal, so I would encourage you all to take part, especially as they are playing one of my favorite pieces, the Schubert String Quintet!
