Dear Crestwood Families and Friends,
Happy New Year! It’s hard to believe that it's already 2017. It seems like only yesterday that we were all here at camp learning to swim, perfecting our moves on the athletic fields, conquering one of our adventure courses, shining like a star on our stage and creating a “masterpiece” in one of our many art activities.
Many of you have been with Crestwood for years (some of you were campers yourselves) and we appreciate the continued confidence that you have in our staff, program and facility. Every year we invest in all these areas so that Crestwood remains the clear choice for those seeking the ultimate camp for all ages.
We have already begun a few new projects for the 2017 summer:
New Mini & Junior Day Bunk (building) is now under construction and will be a beautiful home for our youngest campers and give them convenient access to their own pool and many of our camp pre-school facilities.
New Hockey Rink – We may have lost the Islanders to Brooklyn, but Crestwood is putting in a brand new rink for all of our hockey fanatics. We start floor hockey for campers entering kindergarten with “pillow” sticks and move up to more realistic equipment and game play under the guidance of our instructors as the campers age increases. The rink will replace what used to be “Hockey 2”.
New Basketball Court – The New CSG (Crestwood Square Garden) is currently under construction. This new outdoor court will be similar in size to our “Knicks Court”, which is our largest outdoor court. It will also have a few rows of tiered bench seating and benefit from lots of natural shade. With our indoor gym, 2 pre-school courts, 1 mid-size court, plus new CSG and professional instructors, we truly have basketball covered.
New Playground – We are planning a new playground for our pre-school age campers. It’s still too early to give more details but rest assured it will become a new favorite activity for our youngest girls and boys.
You can likely expect a few more announcements and new surprises for the 2017 summer that we will share with you over the next few months.
