Here’s a First Time story from Retreat Center Coordinator Coreen Walsh.
Before I arrived at Camp Stevens I had heard of organic gardens, vegetarian meal options and one-of-a-kind yurt cabins; however, my high expectations were far surpassed after only our first meal. I was instantly impressed by the Camp Stevens community’s food philosophy and commitment to eating in a way that is healthy for people as well as the environment. Not only did the place provide a peaceful setting for the women’s retreat in which I was participating, but the weekend was also filled with welcoming staff, homemade granola, loose-leaf tea, several inches of sparkling snow and cozy fires. By the end of my weekend retreat, I found myself smitten with Camp Stevens’ philosophies and programs. I now serve as the Retreat Center Coordinator and have the opportunity to offer similar inspiring experiences to our guests.
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.
