We miss you all so much that we have decided to work a little harder to keep in touch. First, we
will be posting updates, staff news and comments you send in here each week. Next we will post the
camper and counselor directories very soon on the web site. Third, we are building a new Merri-Mac
Facebook page where we will post devotions (written by counselors), and other camp information.
Finally, we are going to work even harder on the road in hopes of seeing more of you this fall and
winter. Keep your eye out for an email with more detail soon, and if we do not have your email
address then, by all means, send it on.
The big news here is that Anne Archer is working with us year round. She is currently planning a
trip through NC so let us know if you would like her to come to your house. Sarah Hord and
Hailey Fulford are planning a trip to camp this week, and I suspect that one or two other counselors
may join them. The CIT’s have all sent in their applications and I get to start calling them next

We want to hear from you so click on the “tell us” button and we’ll post your comments here.
With this in mind we have already heard from Lee B. the day after camp ended. “Heyy everyone! I
just submitted my staff application! I feel ‘too legit to quit” as Sunnyside would say! Anyway, I
got home last night and I slept for 12 hours! I can’t believe that my Sunnyside year has come and
past SO quickly, but it was honestly the best summer of my life, just like I had dreamed it would
be. I remember being in Tweedle Doe and looking up to those Sunnysiders so clearly. And I was one
of them! And now I will hopefully be a CIT so I can continue to watch all of you campers grow in
your walk with Christ. For all of these years camp has been all about serving me (the camper). But
now it will be about me giving back to y’all and I can’t wait! I have had so many fun memories at
camp, and so many times when God picked me up when I was down. I am so nervous because I know that
being a CIT will be hard, but I know that seeing your smiling faces everyday will make all of the
work worth it a thousand times over. I know that next summer will be so much fun for everyone and I
can’t wait to start giving back to the place that changed my life forever. I love each and every one
of you will all of my heart! P.S. Princess party is going to be amazing! I already have my theme
We’ll be wondering about that theme and looking forward to hearing from each of you.
From This Haven…
