Marc Cooper Award

Summer 2023 Nominees and Submissions

How it works:

This award was created to recognize staff members who went above and beyond to ignite positivity in the camp environment.

Each person nominated was given the chance to be officially recognized as a Marc Cooper Award recipient and the chance to win a more extensive prize by sending in a creative submission, such as a video or a poem, to describe why camp was inspiring and/or meaningful to them.

After going through all of the submissions, we are thrilled to share the four winning entries with all of you.
