Due to changing priorities by Camp Robin Hood, we will no longer be using their camp to host Camp Lucy. We have several possibilities that we are looking at, and we are positive that Camp Lucy will have a new home by September 2018!
Unfortunately, due to a booking conflict by the camp we have been renting, we have to cancel Camp Lucy for 2017. We have attempted to reschedule for the following weekend, but it did not work out.
The camp has made substantial improvements over the years, and they are now being considered for larger and more profitable group rentals, like weddings. The requirements and pricing for us will be increased for next year. The costs will be too high for us to continue to make Camp Lucy an affordable weekend, so we will be looking for a new venue.
Camp Lucy is not a physical thing. It’s not one summer camp located on the shores of Ossipee Lake. It is the people and dogs that attend every year. It is the people and dogs that have become friends. We can and will move on and the people and the dogs who have made Camp Lucy so special will come wherever we end up and it will be great.
I will keep everyone appraised on the results of my search for a new camp. When I find a good place, everyone will know. My search will start this Fall after the summer camping season is over.
Last year we debuted the Camp Lucy Memorial Wall It's a moving tribute to the dogs we have lost over the years. Every year, we place the wall at the front of the cafeteria where everyone can view the plaques. The company I've contracted to make the plates combines color pictures with whatever amount of text desired to make a lasting memorial.
The company's name is Halex Awards in Geneva NY.
The price for the plaques are the same as last year.
$10.23 for the plaque with text only
$16.78 for the plaque, text and picture
$5.75 for shipping. The shipping is the same whether you have one, or 10 plaques.
For those of you who have pictures, there's a email address on the
form where you can send the picture, just make sure you have your name prominently displayed in the email. The prices are at the bottom of the file. If you have more than one, the shipping remains the same.
If you do order a plaque, please put your name and address on the back. That way, if for some reason we don't do Camp Lucy, I can send you your plaque. They would look beautiful on an urn or box of your dogs ashes.
Remember to bring the plaques to camp with you!
