Want to succeed at summer camp? Preparation remains crucial
Dave
Tuesday, April 08, 2014

It is interesting to be interviewed by different writers for a variety of family publications and it seems like this has increased recently . Over the years, I must be in a number of rolodexes by now ---or address books or groups or whatever current terminology is for ‘find someone who knows something about this topic and get some quotes’.

Camp Is Right Around the Corner!!!!
Tuesday, April 01, 2014

It’s hard to believe campers will be coming down the camp road in less than 80 days. It’s even harder to believe the staff will be arriving in 70 days! Is summer ever going to arrive this year? As hard as it is to believe that summer is right around the corner and that it is actually spring, Dave, Nici and I are finishing up the last of our staff hiring.

Choosing the Right Summer Camp

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

The longer I am a camp director and work with young people, the more convinced I am that a good camp environment is truly a tremendous addition in growing up. I’ve always known that but it seems to become more and more valuable in a pretty hectic world.

Check out this great article written by Ellen Warren. In it she writes about the intangibles benefits of the summer camp experience. Dave and the Williams family are quoted several times throughout the article stating how important the camp experience is and what Falcon campers gain from their experience at Falcon and of course she uses our motto, Fun for now, Skills for Life, as her title.

Spring Thoughts
Dave Devey
Spring Thoughts
Tuesday, April 20, 2010

After all these years, I still get excited each spring. It’s time to go down and begin to open up camp, staff contracts are completed and I watch the camper list grow. We work hard all year round to make each summer special but spring is always a different excitement: Who’s coming back to camp? Which staff are returning? Will I know anyone? What new programs are happening? My best friend’s not coming back so I don’t know if I want to. Am I going to be able to make friends? There are always lots of questions this time of year.
For returning campers and some of you who are still wondering about returning, camp will be different this year. But if you think about it, camp has some different people every year! Falcon is Falcon every year, always with a few improvements, always with a few new activities but some of what makes camp so special is that you know what it is and what to expect. That’s part of what makes Falcon feel like a “second home” to so many campers. Another large part of camp is the people who make it special. We all have people who have become special to us over the years at Falcon. Not everyone can return each year but you will still be friends with them for as long as you want. My best friends now are still people I met at camp when I was a camper and a counselor and I’m getting pretty old (no, there were no dinosaurs roaming camp at the time but it was pretty close).
One thing to remember: All of you were new campers at some point, a little wary or unsure of what you would find at camp. There will be new campers this year who will feel the same way. How exciting was it to make new friends and have a great time your very first year??? Returning campers will get a chance to show new campers Falcon as you know it. Before you realize it, everyone will have a few more “best friends” added to their list. Falcon has a wonderful reputation for welcoming new campers into the “Falcon Family”. I’m looking forward to all of you being a part of Falcon this summer!

Dave
