Welcome Gratia

Gratia Ratzloff

Hello Camp Warren Community!

My name is Gratia Ratzloff and I am the new Program Director at Camp Warren! I feel so humbled and excited to be able to spend another summer on the shores of Half Moon Lake—the last time I worked at Camp Warren was in 2009. I am thrilled to be back at good ole Camp Warren in this new role and look forward to seeing many of you this summer.

One of the things I love most about Camp is that it means many things to many people. It means making new friends and reuniting with those you made the summer before; it means learning how to be independent and challenging yourself to try new things; it means being outside for days on end without worrying about getting dirty (that is what the lake is for, right?); it means singing at the top of your lungs unabashedly; it means being in a place where you can truly be yourself. It is both the place and the people that make Camp so magical. I simply cannot wait to be a part of the magic again this summer.

The countdown to Camp is well underway. In just under two months, Dave and I will move up to Warren and get ready for Work Weekend, Memorial Day Family Camp, our 90th Anniversary celebration, and Staff Training. Before we all know it, campers will be singing “I want to go back to camp again” as the first buses arrive at Side Lawn!

If you haven’t registered for camp yet, there is still room but it is filling quickly! If you have already signed up, we cannot wait to see you. If you are interested in joining us for Work Weekend, Family Camp or our 90th Anniversary Celebration, please visit our website and Facebook page for additional information! It is sure to be a summer to remember.
