We've been coming for four generations, since the 1950s, and we've always loved Camp Van Vac. We've caught some mighty fine fish, too.

We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed ourselves these last couple of days. This is a beautiful camp, and so calm and peaceful. The city was taking its toll on both of us, and this was just what the doctor ordered.

~ Stephane and Tom

We had a wonderful time at Van Vac, as usual. This place is so healing for us, sacred ground in many ways. We really value what you provide here and are very grateful for the many ways you made our stay so pleasant.

I am home and am definitely suffering from withdrawal from loons, gently lapping waves, the meditations of canoe paddling, and life organized around sunsets. Lament . . . .

PatAdrienne.gifSeptember 2001. Back in 1988, Patrick was 13 years old and I was 11. Both families were visiting Van Vac for their annual family vacation. (A tradition that started with my grandparents before there was even electricity available at Van Vac!) We met at the main dock one day and became friends. Before our two-week stay was over, we were "boyfriend and girlfriend."

fishConz2.jpgAnother wonderful visit to our home away from home--Camp Van Vac. I've been coming up to Van Vac since I was a little kid. This year was extra special for us as we were able to bring our almost-2-year-old son, Michael, with us and watch him enjoy all the things we enjoyed . . . and still do! We absolutely love coming to Van Vac every year and rolling down the windows every time we enter the road to the main office and smell the pine trees. We have a boatload of memories up there and treasure them deeply and look forward to creating new memories with our son.
