Dear Neighbours,

The Leadership Team of the Grange Hill East Neighbourhood Group (GHENG) would like to thank all of our neighbours for growing our summer camp to be one of the best in the city, through your input, support and volunteerism!  We would also like to acknowledge the amazing and dedicated work of Michelle Lebon and the Summer Camp Committee, who have organized our camps for over a DECADE, including developing excellent Leader-In-Training programs for our youth.  These services build leadership skills and are much needed in this area due to the deficit of local youth employment opportunities.

With success, comes challenges.  We recognize the fact that community members waited in line for a long time to register their children for summer camp and that some waited but did not get a spot.  While the popularity of our camp is an achievement, it is distressing for us that some children will not be able to attend our camp.  As such, the Leadership Team is investigating opening a second site in the Grange Hill East area for next year’s camp, which we hope will support the community’s need for more neighbourhood camp capacity and alleviate the pressure on our community room site.

Many of the members of the Leadership Team have served this community for many years, some for the 12 years the summer camp has been offered.  At this time, new volunteer community members who can help contribute to the development of a new site for next year or those who can take on roles that continue the efforts of GHENG are greatly needed.  At heart, we hope to continue the volunteer-led, inclusive and community involved programming that has made GHENG a community engagement leader in Guelph! We would love to hear from you – info@gheng.ca or 519-836-9427

Yours sincerely,

The GHENG Leadership Team
