With our first ten years behind us, we want to thank Nantucket for all you've done for us! We couldn't have done it without the friendship, help, love, loans, donations and gifts of so many people and businesses. We know our list could never be complete for ten years worth of thanks, so we say a loud and general thank you to the many people who have helped us over all the years, and offer some more specific thank yous to at least some of the folks who made Summer 2016 not only possible, but wonderful! (Please accept our apologies if we leave you off the list!) Giant thanks to the Steamship Authority, who were enormously generous with passenger tickets on the fast ferry to get us all to and from the island at the start and end of camp!
Giant thanks also to the Hyline, who were also quite generous with tickets for those of us who needed to travel between Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket.
Giant thanks to our volunteer and always available, helpful and cheerful nurses, Gloria Gasnarez and Jenny Boley!
Giant thanks to Erik Evens and Billy Tornovish at Don Allen Ford for the loan of a truck to help us make it to the beach with all our gear!

Giant thanks to the Nantucket Whaling Museum, and especially to Susan Berman and Karen MacNab for tours, sing-alongs and storytelling!

We also heartily thank our kitchen cabinet, a group of talented and dedicated folk who help us all year long in creative planning and organizing. The group includes Jack and Mary Beth Weinhold, who also design and photograph for our brochure and publicity, Jacques and Joan Zimicki who are also our landlords and who help us with reduced rent and loads of energy and connections, and Peter Boynton, without whom we certainly wouldn't have found a way to continue camp for ten years and whose ways of helping have been too numerous to list!
For your entertainment, while you're waiting for the much-anticipated, soon-to-be-available link to the play from 2016, we offer this link to the filmed version of our play from 2015 - our musical version of Ghostbusters! Enjoy!
