Greetings, Trefoil Academy! Today is October 23, 2014. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!
Most of the time, it is very hard to remember what life was like before Trefoil Academy and its gleeful Cheshire Cat whirlwind. However, today, it feels like it was only yesterday that the invitational e-mail showed up in my mailbox. The story of Trefoil Academy is the story of a little project that got out hand.
Margaret Mead once said, It is very true. What started as a small and one-time archery camp has evolved into a full fledged movement that is discovering its voice. Trefoil Academy is dedicated to providing a safe environment where youth are able to discover what they are passionate about without the fear of negativity from their peers. It is offers the rare sanctuary in today's world where imagination, resourcefulness and creativity reign. With each passing year, our impact continues to grow ever further. We have and continue to make a difference in the lives around us.
This difference is the direct result of the wonderful support from our camp family. I would like to thank our dedicated camp parents for their unwavering support. I would also like to thank our wonderful campers who continue to remind us each passing day why we volunteer. May their enthusiasm never waver. Most of all, a very heart felt thank you goes out to the amazing volunteer staff of Trefoil Academy. When I first started working in the camp industry, I was told that you can have a great camp in a parking lot if you have great counselors. The passion, hard-work, dedication and innovative spirit of our staff never ceases to amaze me and is the reason that we are here today.
The magic of this story is its journey and the impact that it has had on all of us. We will never know where it may eventually take us or who we will meet along the way. What is known is that we continue to design, develop and determine our destiny, and what a destiny it will be. Our legacy is change, and the future is ours.

Thank you for your continuous support.
