Liberty Lake Day Camp 2012 PRICE FREEZE - Early Bird Enrollment!

This morning I woke up and read the front page of the NY Times- and it wasn’t pretty.  Unfortunately, the economy doesn’t seem any better today than it was two years ago, and consumer confidence continues to lag behind.  Since 2006, Liberty Lake has been fortunate to have the same number of campers each summer- despite the economy, unemployment, etc.

We are tremendously appreciative of your patronage over this time, and sympathetic to your financial situation- We are all in the same boat- all of our expenses have risen, while revenues have not.

With that in mind, we have decided to FREEZE PRICES at Liberty Lake.  

The prices for 2012 are the same prices that have been in effect since October 1, 2011, and we will hold these prices until we see an uptick in the economy.  It is our goal to be partners with you in raising your children, and we want to do everything we can on our end to continue our relationship in the future.  

If you Re-Enroll before the end of September, you are guaranteed the cheapest rate possible, and get the first opportunity to request friends in your child's group- PLEASE REMEMBER that our system wipes our all of the prior year's friend requests, and you need to enter them again to be placed into the same group with them.  Also, the Early Bird Rate becomes SUPER Early Bird if you choose the option to pay in full by November 15, and receive and additional 5% discount.  Besides that option, there are monthly payment options, as well as simply putting down a fully refundable deposit now, and paying the balance by April 1, 2012.

This is the link for the 2012 Early Bird Re-Enrollment Application:

And if you’re in the mood to be filling things out today, this is the link to petition the DEP to have a public hearing on the local Water Management Plan which includes the gigantic warehouse development behind Liberty Lake:

Next week should be amazing- kicking off with our 10th Annual Ga-Ga Tournament- Somebody is coming home tomorrow afternoon with a FOUR FOOT MEGA-TROPHY- Consider this your warning…
Thank you as always for entrusting your most prized possessions with us- It is an honor to be your child’s summer home!

This Thursday night is our annual FAMILY NIGHT, in which all Liberty Lake Families (plus you can bring extended family and friends too) come for an evening of fun, food and festivities.  The Camp Show: CAMP ROCK begins at 5 PM, and the evening starts for everyone else at 5:30 and goes until 7:30 PM. We will have our greatest Bar-B-Q ever, as well as boating, mini-golf, climbing tower, basketball, Ga-Ga, Hulla-Ball, Volleyball, Outdoor Laser Tag, and the Zipline (just for parents).  From 5:30-6:30pm, the Group Leaders, Counselors, CITs and Division Leaders will be at their arrival areas, eager to meet you- after that, they will be assisting at the program areas.

At 6:45pm at the Amphitheater will be our annual 5-Year Jacket presentation to well over 100 recipients, followed by the first ever DECADE CLUB induction ceremony to over 25 Campers and Team Members who have been with us EVERY SINGLE YEAR from 2002-2010.  We hope you can make it out- even if you re not attending this week- It's supposed to be a beautiful evening, and should be an amazing night.

All CAMP ROCKERS will remain in Camp, as will their siblings (unless you tell us otherwise).  They will eat before the show, to make the 5pm curtain.
AFTER CARE WILL END AT 5pm ON THURSDAY.  So all Campers remaining in Camp after 5pm, will eat dinner with the staff, and be at their arrival areas by 5:30.  We are expecting over 1000 people for this event, so please come early, and please be patient in the parking lot.  

In just a few days, we will be opening our 2011 Early Bird Registration. If your kids loved Liberty Lake this summer, then you can take advantage of signing up at the FROZEN 2011 WINTER RATES. All payments are refundable until June 1, and early birds are eligible to get the 5% November Pay-in-Full discount as well.  Last year, close to 60% of our Camp Families signed up for the Early Bird, and half of them paid in full by November. Another great reason to sign up early, is to get your bunk requests in now- Many families which sign up late are unable to bunk their children with their friends from the summer prior. Another note on that note- BUNK REQUESTS NEED TO BE MADE EACH AND EVERY YEAR, as our system annually wipes them clean.

For entering 9th and 10th Graders, we hope you'll check out our awesome TEEN LEADERSHIP PROGRAM.  Justin Brown will be available to explain in on Thursday night- he will be shaking the trees over at the WE LOVE LIBERTY LAKE Coalition table.  We have a petition that needs to be signed in order for the DEP to recognize Liberty Lake as worthy of a public hearing in regards to the Mansfield Township Wastewater Management Plan- please sign the petition (it takes just a minute):

Thanks, as always, for entrusting us with your children.  We hope to see you on Thursday night, and we will Email you again when 2011 Registration goes LIVE for 2012!
