those of you who may join us this year!

people would like to see on it. We hope that what
you find here is helpful, and that if you cannot
find the information you are looking for, that you
will let us know.

Phil has continued to be
busy after the closing of the camp. Leaf cleanup was
unusually tough this year due to the weather. But,
it is all done, and the leaves are baled! All 360 of
them! Currently, he is waiting for the ice to freeze
over so that some fishing can be done. When he isn’t
at the campground enjoying his new shed, he is
running the girls to their activities.
resigned her position with the Brainerd School
District this June. She is now a full time
campground employee, who sometimes gives her new
boss a run for his money! She even got on the
tractor and helped with the baling of the leaves!
She is very happy to devote her full attention to
all of the campers, and the girls as well. It is so
nice to NOT have a color coordinated calendar and to
be able to run the girls more easily. However, in
order to get her kid fix, she still substitute
teaches. She is truly enjoying her new shift.
Rachel is a freshman in high school. She is
enjoying her new experience as a high school
student! Rachel got her permit this fall and is in
the midst of learning all about driving in Minnesota
winters. She continues to stay active in volleyball,
softball, orchestra, band and piano when she isn’t
reading or on her phone! She has graciously afforded
her father the opportunity to grow more gray hairs.
She is doing very well with this.
Amanda is a
seventh grader who continues to do well in school.
She enjoys playing flute and piano, as well as
figuring out technical difficulties for her mother,
father, and anyone else who happens to ask
questions. Amanda stays active with downhill skiing
and softball. She turned 13 this year – which she
said was, “A big deal!” Amanda has now joined the
ranks of texting teens with her new/old phone! Her
new best friend is Gus.
Gus has gotten
soooooo big! Phil says, “Coni finally got her lap
dog.” Gus is 8 months old and eats everything in
sight. Including socks and gloves. We are all having
a blast with him, and cannot wait for you to see him
when you come to the camp.
what was new this year at the camp!
built a new floating dock for the seasonals this
time around! He is keeping to schedule on updates to
the camp! He, Darrel and Brad also installed new
Frizbee Golf equipment this summer. With any luck
there will be electrical updates in the spring of
2018. A week was spent trimming trees – which is a
never ending job, and landscaping sites with the
attempt to grow grass this fall. We shall find out
this spring if they will reap what was sown. As
always, there were also trees planted throughout the

we are always impressed with you, we are going to
put this in again:
We are thankful to the great campers who joined
us again this year. We are so grateful that you
choose to come stay with us, and are impressed with
the manner with which you conduct yourselves. You
help us keep the park family friendly, respectful,
clean, and fun. We realize that we have a lot of
rules to follow, and we appreciate the consideration
you have for us in following them. It is a wonderful
testament to the clients we have, as well as the
friends they bring with them. Our newbies continue
to share their compliments to everyone who camps
alongside them. Thank you to everyone who sends new
campers our way. We sincerely appreciate your
patronage, support and kind words. Thank you for
respecting our campground, environment, and
A couple of years ago, we asked our campers that
if they brought a rug, that it stay on the cement
pads so that would keep/grow as much grass as
possible. It continued to make a difference again
this year, so this is going to become a standard
practice in our campground. Thank you for your
Stay safe everyone! We hope you all have a
wonderful season until we meet again, or meet anew.
