Lori Anderson introduced Marnie Wells, our host, CEO of Camp Tanadoona, and Excelsior Rotarian. Several great changes have been made at the camp since our rainy autumn meeting here in 2012. A good roof overhead, and a new entry sign were visible results of the first phase of a capital campaign that ends with 2014. Marnie provided a history of the Camp that originated with an un-used Governor’s summer home and the 103 acre land donation by the Minneapolis Rotary Club in 1924. The Campfire organization partners with affordable housing groups to bring urban children into the beautiful woods of Carver County and provide all the activities associated with organized camps. Marnie showed a video that illustrated the joy and smiles of campers, parents and counsellors as they reflected on the value of Camp Tanadoona. The Camp’s challenges and opportunities for independence and confidence are made possible by diverse corporate sponsors from the Twin Cities, and special support from other Rotary clubs. The plans for future building and upgrading of facilities were shared, and Marnie would welcome support from Chaska Rotarians so we can add to the life-changing experiences provided by the camp.
