Directors CornerFirst, let me say Happy Holidays to all of our camp families and friends. I hope that you are all having a great holiday season. The countdown to camp really begins now in earnest.
As many of you are aware, registration for 2011 has been extremely strong which is great news for camp - a clear sign of health in difficult times. There are two struggles that come with such robust registration though. First, people often get the impression that camp is full just because some sessions and/or age groups are full. While we are certainly full in many age groups (in fact there are substantial wait lists in some cases), we still have lots of room in other areas – particularly in the younger age groups. Second, several children that have been long-time campers didn’t get the weeks they wanted. I have drafted a letter to these families to explain how this can happen in great detail. (Click here to see the letter if you are inter-ested). In short it happens because our returning families by themselves are expanding the number of weeks that they want and we are at the pro-grammatic and legal limits of our enrollment capacity in most cases. We are working hard to find ways to serve all those families that are on the waitlist, and we will continue to keep you apprised of our progress.
On a related note, I would like to thank all of the volunteers that helped out at Camp Combe this past year. We got an enormous amount of work done and were able to serve more families, and we were able to do a better job serving our existing families because the work you all did. Again, thank you. You made a tremendous difference.

Yoga is an ancient, self-empowering prac-tice that utilizes a wide range of tools to enhance well-being and to maintain and restore health. It has also been shown to improve moods, have a positive effect on concentration and memory, and can provide strength and endurance.
There are no pre-requisites are required to begin practicing yoga. Yoga is for everyone, irrespective of age, gender, belief system, cultural background or ability.
Our 75 minute classes run for 10 sessions and are taught by instructor Mia Azcue. Mia is a certified in the teachings of Krishnamacharya Healing. She is a member of the Yoga Alliance and the International Association of Yoga Therapists and is the owner of River’s Edge Yoga in Garrison
