A Note From Sheryl, Richie, and Adam:

Adam, Richie and Sheryl

To Our Equinunk and Blue Ridge Family,

Thank you. We believe strongly that the character of our camp is a reflection of the character of our people; campers, parents, staff and alumni.  It is because of who you are, who your children are and how you are raising them that makes Equinunk and Blue Ridge the unique and extraordinary environment that it is. Thank you for entrusting the care of your children to us and for choosing to become part of our camp family.

The past two years have brought challenges into your life and ours that were complex, emotional and uncertain. The CECBR Family remained deeply connected and supportive of one another, and our family, as decisions were made to not open camp in 2020 and then how to open and operate camp safely in 2021. While this journey continues into the preparation and running of camp in 2022, we are forever grateful to everyone for their trust and their commitment to Equinunk and Blue Ridge. We will never forget this time in our lives, and most importantly, the people with whom we experienced it.

The year ahead will demand both flexibility and excellence as our team works to create another unbelievable summer at CECBR and we cannot be more excited for the journey and summer ahead. Your daughters and sons will soon be in their summer home surrounded by amazing friends, caring counselors, meaningful traditions and an uplifting freedom to be themselves… and we will be there with open arms and beaming smiles to welcome them home.

Love,

Sheryl, Richie and Adam


Growing Up At, And Now Directing, CECBR:

Adam Baker, Director

In the summer of 1991, as a shy and sweet 9-year-old boy, I took my first steps into the world of Camps Equinunk & Blue Ridge. Never could I or my parents, Sheryl and Richie, imagine that this would begin a journey so incredible and transformative that it would help shape my core values and career choices. For generations, parents have sent their sons and daughters to a community that is more than a summer camp, but rather into an enduring culture that has preserved the values of family, compassion, tradition, and childcare since 1920. It quickly became clear to me that returning to EBR each summer was really coming home, leaving the ordinary to step into the extraordinary.

Decades later, as an Owner-Director of Equinunk and Blue Ridge it is with tremendous dedication and passion that my family, leadership team and I ensure your sons and daughters are guided through experiences that will lead them to become better sons and daughters, sisters and brothers, husbands and wives, and one day better mothers and fathers. The work we do has the potential not just to change lives, but to transform them. As one camper who became a counselor and color war chief describes it, “Equinunk and Blue Ridge is a place where your best friends become your brothers and sisters, and your brothers and sisters become your best friends. For it is not just the traditions that define us, but rather the people who pass them down.”

Thank you for your trust and valuing the timeless experience that is Equinunk & Blue Ridge. We are dedicated to the success of your children and take our role in their lives with great care and responsibility. We look forward to the many years that your family will be a part of ours.

All my best,

Adam
