|A letter from the Executive Director, Stephanie Schiff Dear Connect Us Families,
It’s hard to believe our third summer camp is already over! Our growth has been phenomenal with 58 brand new campers this summer-all through word of mouth! As both the ED and the parent of two campers, I am amazed by the the quality and creativity of our devoted staff, and with the wonderful mix of children who graced us with their presence over the past 8 weeks. Your kindness and generosity has been overwhelming, as well. We can’t thank you enough for supporting Connect Us through your generous donations, by telling other families about us and for continuing to enroll your children in our camp and year-round programs.
We also appreciate the feedback you’ve given us this summer. Hearing the touching stories of your child’s social successes, attitude improvements, and about them being kinder and more cooperative with friends and family is what fuels us. We appreciate the faith you had in us to set the social bar high for your children. We know many of them will begin the new school year with increased confidence, resiliency, and tolerance, resulting in the development and enjoyment of positive peer relationships.
On behalf of the entire Connect Us staff and volunteers, thank you again for being a part of our family! We wish you and your children smooth transitions into school and look forward to connecting with you soon.
