Summer 2020 Announcement

The time has come for us to make the heartbreaking decision to close Whitman Summer Camp for Summer 2020.

Although we hoped and hoped we could be with our campers, our staff, and our entire Camp Family this summer, the health risk to run our camp as we know and love it became impossible and what we love about camp was unrecognizable. The health and safety of our Camp Family was the most important factor in guiding our decision to close this summer.

We are sending all our love to our Camp Family as we all work to process the unbelievable reality that camp is closed for this summer.❤️

Virtual Hugs to you all,
The Whitman Summer Camp Family and Staff

We need to give a huge shout out to Yeage Allison Lee, an ESOL teacher from Rachel Carson ES, for collecting food donations for our local school's families in need. This is her 3rd week collecting and it is a HUGE task. She is calm and focused on helping her students! She collected enough groceries to give 2 bags to 50 families each week!!❤️❤️

Thank you to Rob Chasteen Scheer and Maurice Scheer from Comfort Cases for jumping in and saying that they will do anything to help!! They donated enough toiletries to pack bags of soap, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, and many more essential personal care items for 50 families. They gave a shout out to their community and in less than 24 hours, bags and bags of groceries were at their doorstep to give to these families in need. Rob and Reece, along with Comfort Cases, have committed to continuing to help local families in need. That is awesome!

Thank you to our Camp Families who dropped of bags and bags of groceries to help Allison and the teachers at RCES both this week and last week. Your donations are making such a difference for those families who need us the most right now.

Last week when we delivered the groceries, the smiles on the kids' faces and the gratitude from the families was pretty emotional. We will be dropping off again to these families tomorrow, so thank you all for helping to support Allison and the RCES staff to make that happen.

We are still collecting for our local medical community who are dangerously low on PPE to do their jobs and stay healthy. We have been working with Dr. Jenny (Darnestown Family) and other ER Doctors and Nurses from Shady Grove Hospital and Frederick Memorial Hospital to collect items they desperately need to stay safe.

Please check their list of needs below and see if you are able to contribute:

😷 Masks - any kind but desperately need N95. They have been wearing the same mask for more than a week!
😷 Gloves
😷 Gown - They are wearing the same gown for weeks until the gowns break down.
😷 Clorox Wipes
😷 Hand Sanitizer
😷 Baby Monitors - To help monitor patients
😷 Yummy To-Go snacks (protein bars)

💲 We have a camp mom who has volunteered to collect money and organize meals for medical professionals. Please DM, Text, Email or Call if you would like to be added to the list to help provide meals.

We NEED our medical professionals to help our community stay healthy and safe. Please consider donating. Any little bit helps. We can all give a little something.

Be silly.
Be honest.
Be kind.
We practice this at camp everyday❤️
It’s time for the world to do the same.
If life outside of camp could mirror what we experience everyday at camp, that would be so lovely❤️
We could all aim to be Camper of the Day everyday😀

One of the things campers love about our camp is that they have choices and the ability to design their own camp experience. Each camper is unique so why make a camp that is a one size fits all?
Campers have unique interests, talents, skills, and hobbies. We make it possible for them to stand out and we honor what each unique camper brings to camp to make the camp experience their own.
Campers, use this time at home to follow your interests and build those skills. Make this experience at home unique to you❤️

Find the friends that make you laugh and connect with them.
Read those funny memes circulating the interwebs right now.
Find a funny tv show or movie.
Just laugh and make yourself feel better.
Quick confession: I love AFV and the videos of people falling down🤣 Of course I don’t want them to get hurt. BUT when they show the compilation videos and it is one wipeout after the next, oh boy. I can’t stop laughing 😝
What makes you laugh?

There is so much value in the learning that you all are experiencing at home right now!
Parents: don’t worry about scheduling every minute. You have enough on your plates to manage right now.
Seeing the pics and videos of you all having family hikes, family game nights, cooking together, going on bike rides, playing soccer in your yards, and just chilling out together, that is so important. There is so much value and learning in those moments.
So know that it will be ok. These moments have way more value for your kiddos in the long run.
You all are doing an amazing job!!!

As my 7 year old daughter and I reflect on our summer she told me that Whitman was the BEST CAMP EVER!! This is a kid who did not want to go to camp at all. She attended 2 other camps in the area this summer and said next summer she is ONLY going to Whitman. Thank you for making her such a happy camper. We cannot wait until next summer. Thank you to all the amazing counselors and of course Jenn and Doug. Bonus her older brothers loved Open Roads and cannot wait to see what the plans are for next summers Open Roads.
Open Road continued on today!
