More Beginnings!The last blog entry we posted was all about new beginnings. Appropriately, only a few hours after it was posted, our beloved owners, Jason and Leslie Silberman welcomed a new son, Chase Dylan Silberman into the world and the Matoaka family. We also announced the names of this year’s College League Captains! Four captains and nine co-captains will devote their summer to leading their respective teams into glory in a seven week competition of adventure, spirit, friendship and fun. Their names were announced in the middle of our Dining Hall to thunderous cheer and applause. Their legacy on Camp Matoaka was born yesterday, just like the young Chase. Tuesday, our campers travelled with their bunkmates through a rotation of different activities that we offer. Many were exposed to our Matoaka activities for the very first time. Camp offers so many opportunities for children to experience new things. Water-skiing, fishing, zip-lines and horseback riding are just a few of the unique activities that we offer. It was great to see our staff and counselors outside having fun and participating for the first time of the summer.
On behalf of everyone at One Great Place, we’d like to welcome Chase Dylan Silberman to our family and congratulate our newest College League Captains! Let the Matoaka Magic begin!
