That’s a First: Tomato Candy

Here’s a First Time story from former staff member Jeff Bassett.

I arrived at Camp Stevens for the first time at the end of a week-long road trip starting Portland, Oregon. Upon arriving, I was welcomed by Abbey, at that time our Program Director, who was “so excited” about so many things that she wanted to share. Fresh ripe cherry tomatoes from the garden, delicious little pieces of tomato candy, were the most memorable.

Two other staff members, Ben and Ryan, invited me to join them for a rock climbing trip that same day. I went and had a great time. Within hours of arrival, I had experienced two of the best things that I think Camp Stevens has to offer: delicious, sustainable food raised on site and a warm, welcoming place to call home.

2012 marks the 60th year of Camp Stevens. Over the next few weeks – leading up to our September 2nd Open House celebration – we’ll be sharing people’s reflections on their first times at Camp Stevens. Share your story by emailing ashleyATcampstevensDOTorg.
