How We Spent Our
SUMMER V ACATION

W     hile at camp, campers are empowered to do things they never thought they could do.
      For instance, climbing the tower at the high ropes course is something many of our
campers never even thought possible and yet each and every summer hundreds of
campers reach the top of the tower and zip back down to earth, overcoming their doubts
and fears.

                                                                           (Continued on page 4)

  Camp Director’s Message
  By Dorcas Tomasek
     With one week (8,648 minutes) to spend at Camp Boggy Creek,
  what would you do?
     During the opening campfire of session nine, a camper shouted
  out “Best Week of Our Lives!” and the overwhelming response was
  every single person shouting back at the top of their lungs, “Best
  Week of Our Lives!” and so it began… We, as a family, embarked
  on a journey of 8,648 valuable moments that took us:

      Swing dancing, kissing a camel, passing our first swim
      test, catching our first fish, eating spaghetti with no hands,
      eating cotton candy before breakfast, eating cupcakes
      FOR breakfast, climbing a 42-foot tower, learning to cook
      chicken pot pie, dressing up in costume and singing on                           “Boggy has taught m

          Williams’ Family Cabin is Dedicated
          On August 9, Camp Boggy Creek Chairman Jim Ellis, President June Clark, Founder General H. Norman
          Schwarzkopf and Board member/Corporate Counsel John Brewerton welcomed Larry Williams of Winter Park to
          camp. Larry spent time with campers attending summer session number nine and then joined in the dedication of
          a camper cabin in honor of his parents, Arthur J. and Marie H. Williams and Family. A legacy gift from the
          Williams estate was made to camp and a plaque at Cabin # 3 was unveiled in their honor.

    At Boggy Creek, the fish practically jump onto your hook because they know they will just be given a quick kiss from the angler
    and gently pitched back into the water. Because the goal is to allow campers time to be just kids and not focus on their sickness,

    give to our busy campers so they can focus on catching Old Sourpuss, the biggest fish in the lake.

         The Silly O Olympic torch has been lit and the official Olympic music blares. Let the games begin! The recreation field is
         transformed into an Olympic village and all campers compete in events like the Pudding Drip, the Carbohydrate Roll, Paint
         the Counselor, Paint the Camper, and the most popular, the Slime Toss. Campers and counselors alike look forward to the
         clean up after this epic event because the local Lake County Fire Department shows up and hoses down the cheering
         Olympians. No baths are required that night!

   Darden Execs Get Busy in the Kitchen
       On August 1, Dave Pickens, President of Olive Garden and Rick
   Walsh, Senior Vice President of Darden Restaurants spent time in the
   kitchen that Darden built for Camp Boggy Creek over 10 years ago.
   Their visit was part of the year-long celebration of Camp’s 10th
   Birthday.
       Not only did they tour camp, serve lunch to the campers, bus tables
   and sing songs, they also brought presents! They donated a long list of
   items for the kitchen AND brought 40 cases of dessert from Olive
   Garden which was an instant hit with the campers.
                                                                                            Dave Pickens, President of Olive Garden and Rick

            Officials and drivers from Grand American
         Road Racing visited Camp on June 27. Camp
         Boggy Creek is the proud charity of the sports car
         racing sanctioning body. Guests spent the
         morning touring and playing with the campers
         before joining them for lunch. The day culminated
         with the First Annual Frisselle Brothers Invitational
         Miniature Golf Tournament. Grand Am driver Burt
         Frisselle took the top honors and received the
         tournament prize of a Boggy Bear signed by all of
         the campers.

   Campers on Track for the Pepsi 400
      If you tuned into the FOX broadcast of the Pepsi 400 NASCAR Nextel Cup race the night of July 1, you saw the work of
   some very creative Boggy Creek campers on track. The Ginn Company, sponsors of MB2 Motorsports #14 driven by
   Sterling Marlin, invited three campers to help design the paint scheme for the Pepsi 400 car. Top car designer Steve
   Breakfield came to Camp on June 8 where he joined campers: Tori Tiger, age 15 from Daytona Beach, Jake Westbrook,
   age 13 from St. Augustine and Zach Robinson, age 10 from Jacksonville in the Arts & Crafts building. The campers
   worked with a car template that had already placed the Ginn Company and Camp Boggy Creek logos. From there they
   went to work. Steve returned to Charlotte, NC where he incorporated the camper’s ideas into the final design.
      A press event was held at the track on June 29 where Tori and Zach joined Sterling Marlin to unveil the car which the
   campers saw for the first time. They were also treated to a tour of the #14 garage area and hauler and were the special
   guests of The Ginn Company race day. Their wonderful designs and engaging interviews generated both local and
   national coverage for the Camp. Thanks campers!

         Birthday Wishes And The Folks That Make Them Come True
    When you close your eyes and make a birthday wish just before you blow out the candles on your cake, what do you wish for? Wealth? World
 peace? Good health?
    For 10 years Camp Boggy Creek has been making the wishes of over 30,000 children and family members who come here REAL– by providing a
 place where they can come to and forget that they’re sick.
                  “If I had one wish I’d stay at Boggy Creek all year round because it makes your fears become dust.” - Tommy, camper
     As we look back in gratitude to those who helped create Boggy Creek, we also look to the future and our wish to sustain this magical place in
 order to give a “week of normal” to even more of Florida’s seriously ill children. The generosity of Foundations and Corporations makes a tremendous
 impact for our children and families who come to Camp Boggy Creek. Their gifts of giving help insure that even more children and families can enjoy
 the magic of a Boggy Creek camping experience.


 We wish to thank the following foundations and corporations who have donated to camp since our last
 listing in the Spring 2006 newsletter.
