Surprise Lake Camp

Surprise Lake Camp is Building a Swimming Pool

Site work began on August 31 and the concrete shell was poured mid-October. The pool will have an enormous impact on today's campers, and it will enrich the lives of young people for many generations to come. It will be a facility that will make the entire camp community proud.

New York, NY, November 05, 2015 --( Surprise Lake Camp is thrilled that this showcase facility will forever bear the Henshel name. The Henshel Family has been one of the leading families of Surprise Lake Camp for more than six decades. Harry Henshel, the first Henshel to serve on the Board, loved camp and loved swimming.

"Our family has a long and emotional connection to Surprise Lake Camp, dating back to Harry's father Harry Sr.'s time as a camper in the earliest days of SLC. Our decision to fund the construction of the pool represents our ongoing commitment, as a family and as individuals, to Surprise Lake Camp, to its mission and its continued growth and strength. We are honored to be able to contribute in such a concrete (!) and joyful way to the future of SLC." -Joy, Dayle, Patti, Diane and Judy Henshel

Can't wait for the inaugural swim! Until then, keep an eye out for updates on Surprise Lake Camp's website, Facebook page, and in e-blasts to the camp community.
