So, the round about way that this blog came into existence involves CBC and a search for alumni campers and staff. I somehow came upon Kassie's blog during my search and was motivated to start my own blog.
Now, a slight side note, it was a delight to find Kassie's blog because she was one of the best parts of my Barton expereince which spanned 11 years starting in 1989. Kassie was the best camp director (although they were all wonderful) and made camp a home from day 1. In one of Kassie's posts, you'll notice that she mentions learning every camper's name. Whe she got to the Pixie's table (which was the youngest kids at that time, I was 6) I was too shy to tell her my real name, so she named me Fred. It stuck. To this day many camp people remember me as Fred, some don't know my real name. I then started to call Kassie by her middle name, Agnes, and the rest is history. That was a really long side note, but I like to sing the praises of wonderful people!
Any way...I would love to talk to people from CBC, current or alumni alike. I would really like to talk to anyone who went to camp with me or during the late 90's who remembers the Pixie's, Squirrels Nest, Shangrila, etc... I have really had a strong urge to reconnect with camp after 6 years away. Please drop me note if you think we knew each other or want to swap camp stories, songs, etc...
It's the most wonderful place in the world.
