Taking students to Camp Casey has become a wonderful tradition for CHI. Back in 1977, CHI Director Jackie Sant-Myerhoff took the first group of CHI students to this beautiful camp located on Whidbey Island, in Puget Sound near Seattle. She was accompanied by CHI APA Jeanette Stanway. This first trip was such a success that a new group of CHI students experience Camp Casey every year.
This year’s trip took place in April, as Kathy Lawrence, Taunie Murray, Jennie Fouts and Lucinda Mountifield, all APA’s from Oregon and Washington, took a group of 65 students to Camp Casey.
The weather was beautiful and the kids really enjoyed being outdoors. They walked along the beach, played games and also took part in the local Oak Harbor Parade. Students represented their countries with flags. In the evening the students participated in a talent show. Everyone involved had a wonderful time and came away with great friendships from all over the world.
