Fall is quiet at Kabeyun. Even with projects underway and work being done shaping the next camp season, it is quiet here – calm, peaceful. The cycle of the camp year, which peaks in the summer months, gives us the fall and winter to rest, recover, and prepare to do it all again. While summer, when the woods and lake are alive with energy and excitement, is my favorite time at camp, fall runs a close second.
As much as Kabeyun is defined by the place – the trees, the docks, the cabins – its heart is its community. Our campers, staff, parents, brothers and sisters, alumni, and friends are the source of the energy and life that fill the place year after year. The essence of Kabeyun is in supporting one another. Together we celebrate success, overcome challenges, and provide reassurance in moments of doubt. This fall, it has been a source of considerable comfort and confidence for me that I am a member of this community that is welcoming, encouraging, and supportive of people of all ethnicities, religions, races, sexual orientations, gender identities, and political beliefs. It has never felt more important to emphasize this most fundamental aspect of Kabeyun, to affirm it and actively work to ensure that we fulfill that promise in every way possible.
I hope we can count on you to support Kabeyun’s efforts to promote the ideals of a caring, welcoming, and loving community, and to serve as a source of comfort and inspiration for the world beyond our calm, quiet shores. Visit camp, if you haven’t been back in years. Share your memories of Kabeyun with someone who might benefit from a summer at Kabeyun. And please, consider making a gift this year to the Annual Fund.
Kabeyun’s Annual Fund is an essential part of ensuring that the same opportunities that Kabeyun has offered for nearly a century are there for generations to come. Donations to the Annual Fund go directly towards offering tuition assistance for families who struggle to afford the camp experience, improving our facility and equipment, providing professional training opportunities for staff, and offsetting rising costs, including property taxes. Beyond those very real objectives and concerns, though, the Annual Fund is your opportunity to demonstrate your faith in the work we do by making a tangible investment in camp’s mission.
If you are a regular supporter of the Annual Fund, thank you for your continued generosity. If you feel Kabeyun has made a difference, large or small, in your life or the life of someone you are close to, and you have not contributed before, please add your name to our list of supporters and strengthen your bond with Kabeyun, for now and for the future.
