After decades in publication, this year the Poplar Post is officially going digital!
This year has been challenging for all of us, but if there’s one thing that camp has taught us (besides the Angel Code, the value of friendship, and the words to countless songs and cheers), it’s that a tough challenge has the potential to bring out the best in each of us. We didn’t get to spend our summer together at camp this year, so we’re meeting that challenge with innovation!
While we are socially distanced, we’re going to make even more of an effort to ensure that we stay socially connected. Taking the Poplar Post online means we can publish more often and include more fun elements, like this video from Jane and Dan:
Now here’s our challenge to you: Find one new way to stay connected to your camp friends this winter! Here are just a few suggestions:
- Turn some of your favorite camp photos into postcards and mail them to your friends
- Schedule an all-bunk afternoon “rest hour” videoconference
- Meet up for a hike or other safe outdoor activity (remember to maintain distance and mask up!)
- Coordinate a craft, book or friendship bracelet swap by mail (if you’re looking for inspiration, how cool is this rainbow craft swap?
Send your updates and post ideas to Eliza for inclusion in a future Poplar Post!
