Day 60 — From the Director’s Desk:

Good afternoon, friends of CBI! Ali Osborne here, writing to you from the camp office. I’m two months in to my new position as your Camp Bow-Isle Director. I’ve been so grateful for the warm welcome I’ve received from campers, staff, parents, practitioners, and cooks. I’m excited to pour my heart and soul into preparing for Summer 2016!

Today is also the day we bid farewell to outgoing Exec. Director Jon Heath as he flies to join the rest of his family in St. Louis. I’ve especially appreciated learning the ropes (literally) with Jon over the last couple months (and over the last 15 years!) and I hope you’ll join me in giving gratitude today for the 21 summers Jon and Karin lovingly served our camp community. As we celebrate our new adventures, here’s a beautiful song prepared by staff members Ben Vaughan and Abby Becker for Jon and Karin. Thanks to Scott Conover for capturing this video during family camp in August! Watch here:

We hope you’ll join us at the West Vancouver church on Saturday, November 14th for Camp Bow-Isle’s Annual General Meeting. Our gathering will be an opportunity to hear about progress at camp, to thank Jon and Karin and wish them well in person (yes, they are joining us!), and to show your support for camp. Please RSVP to
