Camp Massawippi Visits the Boundary Rotary Club
Recently the Rotary Club of the Boundary was fortunate to be given a preview of important developments at Camp Massawippi. Camp Director, Nathalie Roy and the new Camp Manger, Virginie Cousineau, came to give the club an overview of the changes being made to make the magnificent facilities accessible to a much broader range of clients.
In the past, the Camp has predominantly catered to the needs of young people under the auspices of the McKay Centre, Montreal, which the Boundary Rotary Club has supported for many years. Starting this year, the Camp will also be available to the youth of the area as a weekly day-camp with full access to a very wide range of water-based and other activities.
The Camp will, of course, continue to offer services to its traditional campers and their parents/care givers, with additional opportunities for Respite on certain week-ends through the Winter. The Camp is also looking to the future with other income-generating and fund-raising projects, spearheaded by Camp Director, Nathalie Roy, including a publicity campaign starting shortly in the local media. Nathalie also introduced the new Camp Manger, Virginie Cousineau, who will take charge of all aspects of the day-to-day running this year.
The Rotary Club of the Boundary sponsors an annual Carnival Day at the Camp, has funded a number of its needs and helped build infrastructure over many years and plans to continue to do so. More information on the Camp can be obtained from: info. firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 819 838-4707
