Celebrating the Retirement of Hal Jordan
“During the summer of 1961, at age 8, I had my first camp experience at YMCA Camp Wakanda. I then went on to spend ten summers at a resident camp in China, Maine. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that the impact camp made on me would last my entire lifetime and highlight my 38-year career!
I am convinced there is no other experience that is as powerful in transforming the lives of youth, than camp. The lifelong friendships made and life lessons learned around acceptance of self and others is life changing! It is for this reason that I have decided to designate all gifts made to the Harold J. Jordan Fund be placed in an endowment to provide camperships for deserving youth who fully embrace the YMCA’s character development values.
With your support, campers will be able to continue to share quotes such as, “Camp is a home away from home”, “Camp is my FAMILY”, and “Camp is where I can be myself.” Through your generosity, we can make sure we achieve our mission of providing a lifetime of memories and help young people to build a healthy spirit, mind and body.” – Hal
