Our new/old director and a former staff member, Dottie Myers-Hill and Julie McLeese, are writing a book about VBYC. The working title is "Camp Is For Kids...Or Is It?" Their plan is to finish by the end of 2013 and to have copies available for sale by spring, 2014.
They are collecting stories from past staff, campers, nurses, board members, community supporters, etc., to create a loving treasury of VBYC memories. They will also be including Camp history, maps, and a glossary of definitions (because we all know Camp has its own vocabulary). Please consider sharing the stories of your VBYC experience.
Julie and Dottie welcome stories of any length and topic? think camp log type stuff? "Wills and Dedications," interviews, poems, short stories, drawings and sketches. Camp quotes will be placed throughout the pages along with trivia tidbits. What was your favorite Camp song, scary story, place to be, favorite person? What was your favorite Camp meal? Maybe you're not a former camper but married into someone else's love of VBYC? we want your stories too! We know there are hundreds if not thousands of you out there who have stories to tell. No story is insignificant!!! We feel that Camp stories can be inspiring for generations to come. Will you please help us get our story out there?
