A special goodbye from our Camp Director
Heather Hallam

"Hello Leaps n Boundz families,
It is with a heavy heart that I must say goodbye.  An opportunity came up for my family in another state and, unfortunately, that means leaving my Leaps n Boundz family.  I have enjoyed getting to know each and every one of you through the many programs I was a part of (gym, swim, social skills, and of course CAMP!).  It was not an easy decision for my husband and I to leave Leaps n Boundz.  I will be departing at the end of August, after the end of the 2016 Summer Camp season.  I hope I get to see each of you at least one more time to say goodbye and maybe snap a picture for my scrapbook!   The camp programs will continue with  Joclynn overseeing it, with the much needed support of our wonderful year round and seasonal camp staff.  We look forward to continuing camp programming at Leaps n Boundz and I  look forward to seeing you at camp again especially before the 2016 season comes to an end.

Coach Heather
