Camp

april showers bring...may showers

As hard as I try I cannot control the weather. In the summer I wish I could snap my fingers and make the wind disappear on the lake. Come winter I would like to dance a jig and get a few feet a powder. Every fall…well fall in NH is pretty perfect. This spring, though, I have definitely been trying to will the rain away but have had no luck yet. It is great for our trees, grass and the health of the lake but is really delaying our landscaping, painting and outdoor work at camp (and keeping mountain biking trails too wet to ride).

These shots are typical of the weather lately. The lake is super high (and a wee bit chilly still). Up at the cabins I was on the roof blowing leaves and pine needles away and snapped this shot just before the sky opened up on me.

The bottom line is that, according to our instagram poll yesterday, 72% of you say the sun will make an appearance again someday and that is good enough for me!

See you outside!

first sets of the season!

This past weekend we got out on the water for the first sets of the season! Our boats are not in the water yet but luckily we have some friends who are not scared of some cold temps!

We met at 6AM and were treated to a gorgeous display of sunrise, fog, the moon and a perfectly glassy Lake Sunapee.

Our ride for the day was this gorgeous Nautique G23!

Thick wetsuits were mandatory with water temps in the low 40’s. It was a blast getting out on the surfer for the first time since October! It is pretty cool to look at these pictures with still-snowy Mount Sunapee in the background.

Thanks so much to the Cole-Tucker fam for having their boat ready this early in the season and inviting me to tag along! Reed - on the right above - is one of our campers and an absolute shredder on the wakesurf board.

The season is just getting started!

staff bios are up on the website

Well our 2019 staff is finally assembled! This is a unique season in that none of our 2018 coaches were able to return so we had to build up an awesome staff from scratch. I interviewed about 45 applicants (out of over 150 applications) and narrowed it down to these eight fantastic guys and girls.

Check out the staff here: https://www.watermonkeycamp.com/the-staff

They are stoked to meet all of our campers in just a couple short months!

time to reserve your space

We are not a high-pressure kind of camp but we wanted to let everyone know that we are already 65% full for the summer and it is only February! If you are thinking about signing up you should hop off the fence and reserve your week(s). Last summer we turned away over 30 families because we were all filled up and I do not want to disappoint any prospective campers who are excited about Water Monkey!

If you have a question about availability feel free to e-mail or call any time.

Winter @ camp

I was up at camp this past weekend checking things out and doing a few small projects. While I cannot wait for spring and boats and good times I do love how nice and clean the place looks all covered in snow.
