Proud of impact at Aspen Camp
It seems like yesterday that I arrived at Aspen Camp wanting to make a difference. And I did. The team and I did what many didn't think possible. Picture in 2009, Aspen Camp served about 350 people for the entire year. Now jump to 2013 where we served over 2,300!
We are the only camp in the world providing year-round programs for people who are Deaf or hard of hearing. Although our mission primarily focuses on the Deaf community, we are proud to host organizations in the Roaring Fork Valley. We love having you here.
You, the community, supported and stood by us. On Oct. 2, 2014, Aspen Camp will be 47 years old (or 17,167 days)! We have had approximately 383 board members over the years. I truly thank those who serve on boards. The world is a better place because of you. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of this profound experience and this wonderful community.
Camp is in a much better place, and I've made the decision to focus on myself. I will be shifting from executive director to being a professional grant writer on Nov. 1. I will continue to work part-time for the camp and for other nonprofits. Although I won't be in the valley permanently, I will be back from time to time.
Please come celebrate our success at our Open House, Sept. 26, starting at 6 p.m. See you there!
