WLC COVID-19 Update 3

Dear WLC Family,

Here is the latest on what we are doing during this very uncertain time...

  • We continue our planning to open camp for summer 2020! We recognize that this is going to be a very different-looking season, and we are working on various options to provide a safe camp environment. 
  • We are meeting virtually with past and present Program Directors, Louis Doig, Tom Oxtoby, Chris Burns, Alex Camerino and Gustav Wolmarans, to create virtual content for all of you!
  • We are sharing virtual Joke Time with Goose, The Most Interesting Man on the Knoll videos and live WLC Trivia events on social media and our website. 
  • Nat is turning the water on around camp and our new Food Service Director, John, is cleaning and preparing the Dining Hall.
  • We are organizing Zoom chats for our Alumni based on different decades. More information to come. 
  • We are finding resources to share with our families, such as this document from the Association of Camp Nursing Healthy Camp Starts at Home.
  • We are continuing to attend virtual meetings and webinars to ensure we have the most up-to-date information regarding the health and safety of our campers, families and staff members.
  • We are postponing our work weekends until we have more clarity on how this pandemic is going to affect NH
    • As recommendations change and we get closer to the start of camp, we will be hosting work days at camp and will notify everyone via email and Facebook.
  • Though meager, we have received disaster relief funds from the Small Business Administration! These funds will allow us to pay operating costs for the next 2-3 months. We are counting on donations and loans to help us through these financially challenging times.

 There are a few things we would love for you to be doing while stuck at home...

  • Stay safe, healthy and optimistic.
  • If you don't have social media, see our updates on our website under WLC at Home (https://www.wlcamp.org/wlc-at-home.html) and in the announcements on the Homepage.
  • We would like to congratulate Daniel McGee for winning our Inaugural WLC Trivia via Kahoot! Join us every Wednesday at 4pm EST on Zoom (click this link https://zoom.us/j/98882030619 each week) to play WLC Trivia. You will need one device (computer) for Zoom and an additional device (phone or tablet) for Kahoot.com. Make sure to invite your WLC friends to play and then stay on Zoom afterwards for some virtual hang time!
  • Tell your son to follow us on Instagram @williamlawrencecamp
  • Friend Bill Larry on Facebook (you must have a Facebook account) so you can watch "The Most Interesting Man on the Knoll" updates.
  • Help us build our Alumni base! Our new interns will be reaching out to ensure that we have the most updated information in our database for you - please respond to them.
  • Follow the William Lawrence Camp Page on LinkedIn (you must have a LinkedIn account).
  • Consider WLC when you're thinking about charitable contributions. Click here to make an online donation.
  • Get those camper forms on CampDoc.com filled out!
  • Please do not remit any further payments for summer 2020 until you receive an update from us. As a reminder, at this time, May 15th is the new final payment due date but this date may be pushed further out as we learn more.  
  • Keep day-dreaming about the awesome WLC 2020 Summer we are planning!

We can't wait to see you on the Knoll for summer 2020!

- Your Friends at William Lawrence Camp
