LETTER: Camp Greenwell Thanks Volunteers for an Awesome Summer


LETTER TO THE EDITOR:

Some 550 children spent part of their summer at Camp Greenwell this year, enjoying a variety of activities including archery, swimming, hiking, arts and crafts, horseback riding, kayaking, fishing and sports. Camp Greenwell is an inclusive camp for all children where everyone plays together. The camp experience is enhanced by the generous donations of time and expertise from many people and organizations throughout the area. Some of these volunteers brought their boats for campers to enjoy a day fishing on the Patuxent River, others shared their expertise and love of fishing, some provided weekly nature and environmental lessons, while others shared their knowledge of horses and riding. The U.S. Coast Guard brought one of its work boats for the children to explore, and the Hollywood Volunteer Fire Department brought a pumper truck, providing some refreshing relief from the heat!

The Greenwell Foundation would like to thank the following people and organizations: Patuxent Aeromodelers, Bay K9 Search and Recovery, Hollywood Volunteer Fire Department, Maryland Saltwater Sportfishing Association Southern Maryland Chapter, Tom Kemp, Phil Zalesak, U.S. Coast Guard St. Inigoes, Jeff Tomcsik, Solomons Heritage Tours, Kyle Rambo, Concervation Director of the Environmental Department at the Conservation Dept. at Patuxent River Naval Air Station and his assistants from the Student Conservation Association, Lisa Durst, Kim Whitlock, Rachel Welniak, Volunteer Maryland Coordinator Jackson Webb, Camp Greenwell's Volunteer Jr. Counselors, and the always-popular Chick-fil-A cow.

The Greenwell Foundation appreciates the time and effort all of these people and organizations gave to Camp Greenwell. These activities and experiences would not be possible without their dedication and enthusiasm.

Thank you.
