While we don't expect this update to come as a surprise, it's still not one that we want to deliver. However, we must announce that Swing Out New Hampshire will not take place in person this year. Despite hopeful feelings around the country, all our team agree the many unknowns and potential risks are too great for us to successfully and safely plan and host camp.
Our decision is fully supported by Camp Wicosuta and they are ready to welcome us all back when it's time to do so. While we take time to reevaluate what camp might look like in a year's plus time, we will also be putting together an alternate way of celebrating together later this year.
We still think back often to our virtual 2020 SONH experience, which provided many of us a sense of community during a difficult and isolating time. Hearing Gordon and his band play live together, grooving along with Charles to sweet soul music, dancing in step with Peter and Naomi, and watching inspiring performances of Skye and Marie's solo jazz classes are just a few of the fond memories we have from that evening.
It's a joyous thought to know that in due time, we will be back together again. Let's do our best to hang in there... good times are just around the corner!
Need a reminder of the good times we shared (even virtually) in 2020? Take a few minutes to rewatch past campers joining together in song for a performance of the camp theme song, "Purple Lilacs."
