Good evening NECC Nation!

I am so excited to announce that registration for summer 2009 is now open! Brochures and registrations have been sent out to last years and the year befores campers. So keep your eyes open for them. We have also posted our brochure and registration form to the website. And what I'm most excited about is we have gotten our NEW and IMPROVED online registration uploaded and ready to take registrations. This new streamlined system will be easier for parents and streamline the process in the office, which will reduce the room for error or data loss. Our new system will main stream a whole lot of processes for us here at camp.

My only disappointment has been not being able to get this rolled out sooner. So our appologies to those who are used to getting registration information earlier. The name change coninciding with registration for this summer proved to be a NIGHTMARE!!! But we survived, certainly not without your support and most importantly prayers!

Camp is at a pivotal time right now with a new name, in an unstable economy. So I would ask that you constantly be lifting NECC and it's ministry to young women up in your prayers! Keep Keelah and I in your prayers as we have taken on the daunting task of filling the shoes of Doc and Willow who in our opinion are way to big to fill! Pray that God will send a wave of campers this summer, and that we will be able to minister to a record number of young women. Pray that God will challenge us to constantly be creating an extraordinary ministry in an ordinary world.

Well off to watch Biggest Loser with my beautiful wife!

Greetings Cedarbrook Nation (Ok that sounds wierd),

Well, a lot has happened since our last blog posting. So first we must appologize for the lapse in posting, we promise to get better!

As most of you know and have heard we have changed our name to New England Camp Cedarbrook. While ultimately it will be a good thing for camp, it has brought lots and lots of challenges. There have been lots of little changes and paperwork to give attention to.

The one thing I am most excited about now is that we have changed over and made some improvements to our website, so please check out our home page as that has had the most changes to it. The slide show on the home page will change quite often to announce what we have going on at camp most currently. Be sure the check back for important announcements and camp news as we update the slide show.

Otherwise all is well at 15 Camp Cherith Road. Linea turned 10 years old last month and we are coming to the gripping reality that we have a child in the double digits now!!! Noah is beginning to find his niche here in Maine and loving school. He has begun to make some friends and branch out on his own from his sister.

Jared has come crashing into being a three year old...literally. He had a little sledding accident in which he ironically crashed into the infirmary. He is fine, but had a nice little egg on his forehead. Otherwise he is VERY THREE!!! I don't know who said that two's were terrible, no no no my friends. Three is quite challenging! As much as I don't want him to grow up, I am looking forward to him being 4!!!

Chips (our cocker spaniel) has had his welcome to the woods of Maine. About two weeks ago he was down at camp with me. When it came time to head up to the house he was barking fiercely at something in the woods (like only a cocker spaniel who thinkgs he's a guard dog can do) and wouldn't follow me. This not being that unusual I headed up the road confident he would follow as he usually did. Well when chips arrived at the house he had obviously confronted something that was more powerful than him and had two good bite marks on his abdomen and one on his paw. So we cleaned him up and took him to the vet. After a few rough days of being very sore Chips has bounced back and is barking at something in the driveway as we speak.

We are now getting ready to start registration for the 2009 camp season!!! How exciting is that? The brochures have arrived and are in the process of being prepared to be sent out. Online registration will begin next week so keep you eyes open for announcements on the web! This will be a historic summer as it will be our first as New England Camp Cedarbrook. We look forward to seeing you there.

In His service,
Tai and Keelah (Rob and Becky)
