Hello, my name is Michael McCarthy and I have been a staff member at camp since 1979. I've been a Counselor, Forestry Patrol leader, CIT Director, Section Head and Assistant Director. I have been a full time employee for decades, helping to keep the camp facilities up and running for our campers and staff. I also run the Wood Shop program during camp, and have done so for many years. I love camp for all it does to help develop young people into loving, caring, responsible adults.
Camp is where life long friendships are made, living and working in the out of doors in a beautiful place, where you meet folks from all over the world with different backgrounds, traditions and stories. We learn new skills in an accepting environment where big brothers/sisters look after younger ones. Camp is a place to be yourself and it's okay. We also learn independence with guidance of caring people.
I am here after 40+ years, to support a place that provides the experiences and memories that I and countless others have enjoyed over the years. I am thankful and feel blessed to have another family, my camp family.
