The Recipe for Great Summers? Lots of Planning During the Winter!

While there still may be snow on the ground, Ortoha's planning board is moving ahead with preparations for the 2018 camp season. Brian is working on his marketing plan to get the word out across the state about this year's theme and the Ortoha experience. (Know of a way we could reach an even wider audience? Please let us know!) Meanwhile, various board members are scheming up some pretty amazing Arts & Crafts ideas for our campers to enjoy this year. Although a date has not yet been set for our Opening Camp Clean-Up Day (it all depends on how fast the snow melts!), there are also some great plans in the works to inventory camp supplies and evaluate the need for any replacements as we open camp this spring - most likely in May. 

Here are two great ways you, too, can plan for a great summer ahead: 

1) Mark your calendars!

The dates for camp have been released already (check 'em out here) and the Registration Form is just a few weeks away from being released. Please mark your calendars so you can take advantage of our Early Polar Bear special ($85!) and make arrangements for traveling to and from camp.

2) Nominate a speaker!

Do you think your pastor would make an excellent speaker? Do you know of a person you'd like to nominate? Director Brian Bowes will be sending out invitations to various pastors throughout the Pacific Northwest in the coming weeks, and he would be very happy to receive your suggestion for consideration!

Looking forward to a great summer ahead!
