    I just celebrated my 59th birthday, and like clockwork, I opened another birthday card from what I remember as the Boys Christian League. I’m amazed at your ability to track my movements over the years. I don’t believe you’ve missed a year… you must have assistance from the FBI or the Postal Service! What’s funny, though, is that I only came to one event when I was six or seven years old as a guest of a friend of mine, Scott Reilly. Really, one visit. And I remember distinctly how I discovered I was not interested in team sports- I struck out the first time at bat, and don’t think I’ve ever really played again. Traumatized, I guess. (I did well at tennis and other single sports).

    So thanks for all the years of birthday cards, and glad to see you’ve kept growing and evolving.

    I remember going to winter camp around 98-99. Camp Kare gave kids the chance to actually be kids in the wilderness. Camp Kare allowed 10 year olds to just go have good adventurous fun. During free time we’d break up to go explore, typically with your teammates (I was a Spartan), and see if you could find a killer hill to try and slide down.. one kid, who’s still a good friend, brought a skateboard without the trucks and we tried using that as a snowboard; it didn’t really work well, but I still remember it today..

    All my aunts, uncles, and cousins grew up through Kare. And Camp Kare is an amazing extension of the organization.

    In 2015, I was in the group that was at the camp during the fire. All the coaches handled everything so professionally and even though some girls were away from the group, everyone (including the 2 dogs) evacuated safely. Although the experience was terrifying at the time, it became the experience of a lifetime (in a good way) 🙂 Thank you Mount Kare for the 6 years of fun memories. My experiences there have made who I am today
