It is with a heavy heart that I send this message to you about our longtime friend, camp leader, and mentor, Grant Gerson. Grant passed away Thursday, December 6 at the age of 92.
Grant was such a warm and lively man, full of energy, love of life and care for nature, youth and the camp experience. He will be missed both as a leader in the camp industry and as a dear friend.
There will be a celebration of Grant's life planned in the spring. We'll be sure to share information about this gathering once it becomes available for those who would like to attend and celebrate this wonderful man.
See below for a message from Grant's wife, Ruth.

Grant had a long, wonderful life with lots of good things happening. He had just turned 92 years old. He gave a lot of good philosophy about life to so many people. He is now riding his horse through the hills of heaven. He was always happy and positive and remained so till the end. I was with him and he went quietly and peacefully.
