Final week of DMC

  Hi Parents and Friends of DMC,   We are busy with our last week of camp.  Along with our normal academics and outdoor pursuits, testing starts on Wednesday, we have our Talent Show on Thursday evening, the Luau on Friday afternoon, and Closing Ceremonies on Saturday!   Before moving forward, last weekend was fantastic.  To coordinate with our “Extreme” theme, we had a group of campers camp ou on Saturday then hike to the summit of 14,000 ft. Handies Peak on Sunday – the biking group camped out high in the mountains then rode @ 20 miles along the Colorado Trail back down towards Durango on Sat/Sun – and the other campers enjoyed a Zip Line and Lake Adventure.  Although the campers got blasted by Saturday night thunderstorms, everyone had a great time.  I’ll make sure that we get some blogs and photos posted on the website for you.   Here are some scheduling items:   All parents are invited to the Talent Show on Thursday night at @ 7 PM.  Sometimes the talents are good, often goofy, and sometimes weird – but this is always a fun night.   After wrapping up academics on Friday morning, the campers will join at Zane and MJ’s house for our annual Luau.  This is a special time for the campers and staff to say “aloha” and enjoy each other’s company, so parents are not invited  However, if any parents are in the area, just let us know and you are welcome to join us for other lunches or dinners on campus.   Saturday is the last day of camp.  Campus will open to parents at 9 AM so that you can collect your camper’s belongings.  Brunch will be served at 10, then Closing Ceremonies will be from @ 11-1.  If you will be here on Saturday, but need to leave prior to the end of Closing Ceremonies, let us know so that we can schedule your camper’s recognition earlier.   You will probably have time to briefly speak with Counselors and Tutors after the closing ceremonies.  We will prepare academic, cabin, and outdoor pursuits reports that will be emailed to you a week after camp is over.  These reports will give you details on how the summer went for your camper, test score results, and recommendations for future academics.   If you haven’t done so already, let us know if you need bikes or luggage shipped, your camper taken to the airport, etc.   We’ve had a wonderful summer and I’m sure your anxious to see your camper in just a few days!     Zane Bilgrav Durango Mountain Camp 970-749-5640 (cell)
