Camp Director - Kay “Stretch” MacGregor
“Hello! I am Stretch, and I direct Summer Thing at Camp Nesbit! I’m very excited for this summer. All the staff at Summer Thing are volunteers who love camp and hope you will, too. I live in the UP of Michigan and grew up going to Summer Thing each summer as a camper. I can’t wait to meet you in person at camp. See ya!”
Camp is a world away (from technology, that is).
Camp is intentionally technology-free to create an environment where campers can fully immerse themselves in the wonders of nature and build lasting connections with their fellow campers. This break from screens fosters social interaction, encourages physical activity, and allows campers to disconnect from the digital world and reconnect with the simplicity and richness of the great outdoors. Campers are not allowed to bring phones, tablets, smartwatches, headphones, or similar devices. We know it’s tough. Releasing your camper into the wild (and our expert care) is new for some folks, but know your camper is safe and having a great time.
