Green Grove session 2016 was a successful camp for the 44 (29 girls / 15 boys) camper registrants.  

We were very fortunate in the number and quality of applications received for our staff positions. We received multiple applications for the Director and Assistant Director positions, thirteen applications for the Female Counselor and seven applications for the Male Counselor positions.  We returned to the more familiar format of one Director and one Assistant Director; Connor Moen and Ashley Halko-Addley were hired for these respective positions.  As the number of campers determined the number of staff required, six Female Counselors and four Male Counselors were hired and various applicants were invited to volunteer their services during the two-week session.  We were fortunate that four individuals were able to assist in a volunteer capacity.  Consistent with previous years, we also had the assistance of many other volunteers which consisted of family, friends and church family who helped with camp clean-up, who provided assistance with the supervision of the campers, who worked on the grounds and in the kitchen, as well as, the Board members.
