Happy New Year from Camp Ak-O-Mak!
New Year's News Flash!!…Camp Ak-O-Mak is now a Not-For-Profit organization.
Ak-O-Mak "Not For Profit" News Flash!
Camp Ak-O-Mak is pleased to announce that we are now officially a Not-For-Profit Corporation, "Camp Ak-O-Mak for Girls". This means that Ak-O-Mak will no longer be taxed on your generous donations (whether monetary or gift). As the Camp Ak-O-Mak Executive, we appreciate and respect your gifts and always direct funds back into Ak-O-Mak's facility and programming, endeavouring to maintain Camp Ak-O-Mak's status as North America's premier sports camp for girls.
Although most of North America remains in the icy grip of January, we have turned our focus squarely ahead to the warm days of SUMMER…summer 2015!
The Christmas lights and holiday decor have come down and the camp office has ramped up as Dianne and Catherine make preparations for the 2015 season. The printer has been humming non-stop signalling the arrival of resumes from hopeful camp counsellor candidates and registrations forms from Early Bird Campers! Keep them coming, gang!
In a couple of weeks, Dianne, Catherine, will attend the annual Ontario Camps Association Conference in Toronto. This gathering of camp owners, directors and various suppliers is a key event for industry members to keep abreast of new government regulations, developments and trends in camping. We are so proud to represent Camp Ak-O-Mak and our completely unique program at this largest Canadian camping conference. There simply is NO other camp in North America doing what Camp Ak-O-Mak has been doing for decades!
Ontario swimmers, keep your eyes peeled for the Ak-O-Mak information table at swim meets over the next few months. We love having visitors and encourage you to share your camp experience with your team mates by showing them the camp videos and pictures on display.
2014 was an amazing summer and our goal is to make 2015 even better! We continue to build on our programming, invest in equipment and seek exceptional staff members whether in our kitchen, cabins or canoes, but we cannot do it without YOU! Tell your friends, reserve your bunk and get ready to pack your bathing suit and towel. Summer will be here in no time.
Please know that we appreciate hearing from you, our campers, families and alumni. We value your feedback so drop us a line and let us know how we are doing.
Here's to a great camping season 2015!
Sincerely, Dianne and Catherine
