Over his years on Cedars staff, Ben Nachman worked in Nature, as the Journalism instructor, and OA Coordinator. One summer he delayed expressing interest in staff until the last minute. A spot in the dishroom was the only thing available, and Ben jumped at the chance. He quickly immersed himself in the dining hall, and we adored his work ethic and leadership. We started calling him Edward Scissorhands for his specialized ability to simultaneously sort silverware with both hands. Even if we didn't really understand some of his interests in math and physics, it was always clear this "kid" had great potential, and we are so proud that he is well on his way to "big time stuff".

There are many new faces around camp, but the essence of Camp Cedars is beginning to feel familiar again. With a much fewer number of bodies to feed, staff week affords us the opportunity to do some special things for staff that I wouldn't have the cooking time, oven space, or heat stack space to do during a normal week of camp. Chuck helped me set the menu on Sunday morning and includes items like ham sausage, french toast slice, sweet potato fries, green beans with onion, chicken salad, individual round pizzas, cheddarwurst, enchilladas, refried beans, and assorted cereals. One of these years, come join us on staff; the fellowship and fulfillment is hard to beat.
