In the meantime, Village staff prepared for the arrival of the Session One campers on June 17, while simultaneously cleaning up in the wake of the tornado which struck the property on June 1st at 5:20 p.m. Noted the Village Facebook page, "The clean up process is progressing well. With the blessing of His Eminence Metropolitan Philip, and the full support of the Archdiocese Board of Trustees, we have called in additional tree service companies to make certain that we can open camp on time. So, when you come to camp some things will look a little different. There will be many trees missing. A few buildings will be removed. We will have some temporary housing (approximately 8 cabins worth) behind the lodge near the tennis court. In the meantime, our staff is in the midst of training and extremely excited to welcome their campers!" (View the Facebook gallery of counselors and teachers.)
