An expensive summer camp for New Hampshire’s wealthy kids is closing due to lack of work and food, according to Concord monitor.
Camp Quinebarge, located in Moultonborough, a small town in New Hampshire, informed parents on July 2 the camp would have to close due to work and food shortages:
“While we can do a lot of camp issues, it’s not one we can control. A lot of camps are facing the prospect of closing now,” the camp leaders wrote. . A few minutes later I was forced to inform our staff that we would be closing for the summer, starting tomorrow. “
Parents, who spend anywhere from $ 3,400 for two weeks per child, or up to $ 10k for an eight -week stay, are hoping for more personal time after a year of being together with the whole family. . That is not the case as such “A summer of challenges, starting at the staff level, where in a two-day period only 10 of the 25 staff arrived. In all, only 36 of the 60 original hires came, ”said the parents’ camp, adding that Sysco Corporation’s food orders at the camp “were not good. ”
The fatal damage to the camp was the lack of food delivery at Sysco, according to Camp Executive Director Eric Carlson.
“We delayed the orders and were told to look forward to the future,” Carlson said
Lack of construction the camp prevents staff from driving to local wholesale stores to buy hundreds of pounds of food:
“Going to BJs is not an option for us because there are so many staff and vehicles going back and forth throughout the day.” Said Carlson.
Quinebarge is working to bring back parents who spend thousands of dollars in two-week, four-week, six-week, or eight-week sessions for their children. – READ MORE
