Free camp gave time, resources
To the editor:
Camp Quest — where do I begin? It is the most amazing camp that I have ever heard of. My son has been lucky enough to have been attending this camp every summer since it first began in 2011.
First, the school bus picks up the children and transports them to camp and back again at the end of the day. Second, they get a wonderful lunch daily at Franklin Pierce University. Third, their minds are working all morning learning school work that they may have needed extra help with. Fourth, their afternoons are full of adventures, some of the adventures are once in a lifetime events that include sailing, fly fishing, photography, CPR, cooking, swimming, golfing, plane rides, tree climbing, crafts, drama, music, and tennis to name a few.
The terrific staff shares whatever they are good at with the campers. Fifth, the campers are given free camp backpacks, water bottles, shirts, hats, and a huge camp towel. Sixth, the camp is only three days a week for four weeks, perfect for summer. The only difference is the last week of camp when an extra day is added so that all of the campers can go to Kimball Farm in Westford, Mass. There they can play mini-golf, bumper boats, state-of-the-art games at the Olde Sawmill Arcade and batting cages. Finally, did I mention that this is all free to the students of the Jaffrey-Rindge Middle School? This is all done by the incredible members of the Jaffrey-Rindge Rotary Club, the Jaffrey-Rindge School District and Franklin Pierce University.
