Hi all, I'm Katherine, and I'm thrilled to be the new board chair for Camp Icaghowan. Four years ago I was recruited to join the Icaghowan board and fell head-over-heels for our amazing island. It's been my honor to serve Icaghowan the past few years - from chairing the program committee, serving as vice chair and making annual campaign fundraising calls to representing Camp Icaghowan on the YMCA of the Greater Twin Cities Camping Council, where representatives from each of the YGTC overnight camps join together to preserve and advocate for the future of camping. I am a passionate believer in the importance of nature-based youth development and am so proud of the experience Icaghowan curates for our campers.
The momentum I've seen over the past four years continues to grow - under the tireless leadership of our amazing staff team - as we build board, make critical site improvements and, most importantly, continue to deliver the Icaghowan experience that campers our generations have loved and revered. On top of all that, this is an exciting year for us, as we prepare to celebrate our 110th anniversary in 2019. I look forward to working closely with Michel, the board and the broader camp community to continue moving us forward to a strong and exciting future while remaining firmly anchored in the 110 years of history and traditions that make us who we are.
I'd love to hear from you with any thoughts or just to talk camp, so please send me a message if you'd like to connect. FOP!
Katherine Hauser, Icaghowan Board Chair 2018-2020
