It’s hard to believe that another summer is fast approaching.  Though the last of the ice has just gone out, we are already envisioning the camp full of laughter and lapping water.  We are especially excited to share with you a program that your daughter will have the opportunity to enjoy this summer.  We’ve paired up with an organization, Head to Head, which works with over twenty Olympians nationwide.  Specifically, our campers will have the opportunity to learn from two time Olympic swimmer, Martha McCabe and Kathleen Frasier, and Olympic kayaker. 

These women will visit Ak-O-Mak and talk to the girls about a range of topics from goal setting and managing nerves, to cultivating healthy habits and practicing mindfulness.  They’ll talk to our girls about the importance (and difficulty) of balance and resilience and performance.  Our camp girls are amazing.  They train and study; they take care of siblings and their peers; and, they lead in all sorts of ways.  They work so hard, and this is an opportunity to add another level of support for them.

 Our campers will also have access to educational videos prepared to support them when they are NOT at camp!  Suffice it to say, Catherine and I are thrilled to have Martha and Kathleen spend some time with your daughter. 

We hope that, wherever you are, you are enjoying the start to the month of May.  We will continue to wait for more spring to arrive!
