Weather Constantly repeating "the weather this summer has been great" is boring to write and read, but is wonderful to experience. Sunny skies dotted with a few white clouds nearly every day. The winds on Sunday were actually too strong to hold a regatta, but overall is has been dry, warm, [...]

Weather We have been really lucky with very pleasant weather this summer, and it looks to remain that way. There was one evening period that got rained out, but all other rain has come during overnight hours. Highs have been in the 80's and a nice breeze off the lake has [...]

I headed down to Belding Camp (the area for the youngest boys) this morning after breakfast to see if I could help with cabin clean-up. I remember, first as a camper, that it was the most challenging part of the day - it took me years to figure out how to [...]

Another full day at Camp Mishawaka is in the books. It did not get above 70 degrees today, but with fully sunny skies most of the day it was very comfortable on both land and lake. Part of feeling like you're part of something bigger comes from being a member of [...]
