Where have all the good times gone?!?!?
That's a wrap! 612 campers! Thank you parents!!!
On behalf of Fr. Richard, Anna Tafuto, the coordinating and animating teams, I would like to thank you for your trust and support in giving us the opportunity to welcome your child(ren) into our camp structure! It has been a wonderful “SafeFun” summer filled with memorable moments and everlasting memories! This summer made 24 years of me being involved with camp. I am very blessed to be surrounded by “joyful noise” everyday! This last week has been a very emotional one for our camp staff as the hot days of camp are almost over. But for everyone involved here at the camps and the YLC, this is not a goodbye…but a “see you later”!!!
One of Don Bosco’s famous quotes is that “Education is a matter of the heart.” We implement his teachings in order to empower child(ren) to be aware that he/she is unique, appreciated, loved and that they really, really, really are awesome!!! The YLC is your home away from home J
Please share a few words of gratitude with your animator and coordinators who have given of themselves completely and who have shared their gifts and talents for the betterment of youth today…unselfishly…especially in the wallet!!! It’s not often you hear of a young person working 40 plus hours plus but are only paid 15 or 30 hours a week. That is a true testament of their character and connection to the community! We were a staff of over 70 people…many of them once campers/teenagers in our programs. Hopefully, your child will be next!
In summary, thank you for your prayers and trust. We hope you were satisfied and happy with the summer camp experience we provided. We pride ourselves in being a “real community camp” whose main goal is the happiness of the children and not financial gain. Any “profit” goes back into the programming and activities at the non-profit Don Bosco Youth Leadership Centre’s youth program (dbylc.com). Remember, the place to be in RDP is the YLC! Check out what we do by flipping the sheet over and reading the inserts that came with this newsletter. I know you will be pleasantly surprised by what we offer (15$ tutoring, sports, clubs and so much more!). Remember….SAFEFUN J
