6:30- 7:30 Reception with open bar and passed hors d’oeuvres
7:30- 8:30 Talk and Q&A with David Brooks
An Evening with David Brooks supports the scholarship fund and programming of Incarnation Camp, the oldest continuously operating coed summer camp (and oldest Episcopal camp!) in the country. Every summer campers ages 7-15 travel from the NY metro area and all over the globe to spend an idyllic summer along the shores of Bushy Hill Lake. Our campers live in platform tents scattered throughout the woods on our 740 acre campus. Camp provides programs designed to engage campers in nurturing their physical and emotional growth and development. Through recreation, sports, nature and arts programs we create an atmosphere where campers can explore their interests while building character and friendships.
