Adam Perez, Summer Camp Director Resigns

The letter that went out to our parents in the mail October 4, 2012... 

Dear Summer Camp Parent,
I am writing to inform you that Adam Perez has resigned as House In The Wood’s Summer Camp Director. He is leaving to pursue opportunities more in line with his career goals.

Adam has been associated with House In The Wood since he was a camper. He served the camp in a variety of roles before becoming Summer Camp Director. During that time, he initiated several valuable improvements in the camp program.

I am temporarily assuming responsibility for our Summer Camp program. I was House In The Wood’s Summer Camp Director for more than 25 years and was responsible for shaping camp’s philosophy and programming.

I am currently working to fill Adam’s position. Please visit our website at and our blog at for the latest summer camp information.  

After taking this summer off, Terry Fowler will once again manage summer camp’s food service. Terry has more than 20 years experience as a cook and was our Summer Camp Food Service Director for five years.

We will also be announcing a new camp teen program in the near future.

I know you will join me in wishing Adam well in his future endeavors.

  1. Wow, Mr Adam is gone???? No offense to the people who are running camp now but it will not be the same. Infortunately my kids will not be attending this camp anymore.

  2. I am sorry that you feel that way and we can certainly talk about your concerns. I will register summer campers this year so I will meet with all campers and parents.

    Mr. Adam grew up at House In The Wood Summer Camp while I was running it--first as a camper for 5 years, then as a counselor-in-training for 3 years and lastly as a staff member both counselor and summer camp director for 8 years. I have been running all of House In The Wood's programs for over 30 years. This summer, I will be running summer camp again while I train Mr. Adam's replacement.

    See the registration schedule on this blog and watch your mail for the House In The Wood Summer Camp newsletter.

    We hope to see you there.

    Sincerely Yours, Ms Val
