Here we are more than halfway through Camp Athena 2021! In these precious six weeks we see the children experience joy in play, growth, and learning. They splash in sprinklers, create art, bound across the playgrounds, and build new bonds with friends. We are tickled to watch these Athena Campers experience the raw fun of summertime!
In a year that has been filled with so much uncertainty we feel grounded in the fact that we get to partake in the age old tradition of children enjoying summer fun. It fills up our spirits in a much needed way. We are grateful to our entire community who has taken on every challenge, every difficult ask, every new transition with grace and a commitment that kept us all safe. It kept this beloved community humming; the solid force that has kept so many of us just on this side of sanity!
For those of you returning to Athena, your guides are eagerly anticipating your arrival and are preparing a beautiful environment for you. And for those who are off to different schools and new adventures, remember that you are always welcome to come back and visit your friends here at Athena at community festivals and summer camp.
Thank you to our wonderful summer staff who show up every day committed to giving each child the best camp experience. They hit the ground running even after enduring the emotional weight of caring for children during a pandemic. We appreciate your hard work and we’re so grateful to have you all as part of our Athena community.
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
