IN MEMORY OF PAPPA JOHN

In February 2018, Camp Jamison lost a Board Member, counselor, fierce supporter, and friend. John McGinnis was a cabin counselor for Camp Jamison for six summers and earned the name “Pappa John.” His first summer he was the ONLY male counselor at camp.

Over the summers, John was a role model to countless young boys who came to know him as someone they could count on and was always willing to give them a chance. He then became a Board Member and dedicated his life to spreading awareness about Camp Jamison and helping to fundraise in order to make our summers a success.

In John’s first email to our founder, he wrote saying he was a retiree who was looking for a way to pay it forward in some small way. Pappa John, we want you to know you did so much more than that and your legacy and joyful spirit will continue to live on at Camp Jamison.

In Memory of Pappa John

MANY THANKS!

Camp Jamison would like to give a special thank you to Jan Hertzsch who connected with us through the Taproot Foundation. Taproot nourishes social change by connecting nonprofits with skilled volunteers like Jan. Jan utilized his expertise in nonprofit accounting and Quickbooks to configure Camp Jamison’s Quickbooks online accounting, trained our Executive Director, and continues to serve as an advisor. Without Jan’s help, Camp Jamison would have been unable to keep up with our growing accounting needs. Thank you Jan!
