“If you’re going to put a sticker on your car, it has to mean something.” The television ad for a car company with the phrase, “if you’re going to put a sticker on your car, it has to mean something”, highlights the ability to express ourselves by displaying slogans on our car bumpers. The stickers can represent the support of different organizations, causes, sentiments and dreams like attending a college, a visit to a special country or town, cheering for a sports team, backing a fundraising event or your favorite summer camp. So, what does the Cape Cod Sea Camps’ sticker on your car bumper mean?

friendships made each summer, the longevity and intertwining memories with camp friends, the opportunity to flourish and to practice self-discovery, to feel comradery and acceptance, and to be a part of a cultural melting pot. Camp is a place where Disconnecting from Technology helps each person to experience life naturally focusing on person to person contact and communication.

Camp means Learning “Hard” Skills of shooting a bow and arrow, throwing a clay pot, tacking and jibing in a sailing race, smashing a serve in tennis or speaking a part in a drama production.

Camp means continuing the Vision and Traditions established in 1922 by the Delahanty family to be a place where children and youth can grow, learn, and develop and find out more about themselves in an outdoor environment.

2019 Jib Sheet

Hello Alumni – the Jib Sheet article is a chance for alumni to catch up with the various goings on of all of us who have experienced the camp for the past 97 years. It is meant to keep people informed as to what people are doing and what they have done – particulary at camp. So please feel free to send along stories or tidbits, chance encounters or planned meetings or overviews so we can let your former counselors and campers know what you are up to. Henri Rauschenbach Alumni Director Cape Cod Sea Camps PO Box 1880 Brewster, MA 02631 508-896-3451 x 226

30s, 40s, & 50s – We got a nice note from Anthony Ganz (M’52’53) this past April thanking us for spending time with him on his visit to camp. He opined on how nice it was to see Wono and what was left of Monomoy (now that it is part of the Massachusetts State Park system). He did send along his various awards for our records including Best in Seamanship for the Guides, 1st in the Guides Regatta, 3rd in the Monomoy Regatta and his awards for receiving a Gobs Hat, Skipper’s Hat and the Navigation Pin. His most “salient memory” was of the evening on July 27, 1953 when the Cease Fire in Korea was announced at the outdoor theater. He said “Some counselors cheered and some cried (in relief)”. Finally, he sent along some unit pictures for the archives. We are very grateful for that.

Return of the Prince: Dave Farrar (M’74-CCSC’77) – on the far left- is received by a phalanx of CCSC royalty as he visits the Cape - where it all started. Joining him for a memory lane experience were: left to right: Paul Luby (M’72-CCSAC’82), Phil Sawyer (M’68-CCSC’79), Leslie Robinson Tryon (W’72-’73), Eric Werblow (’72-CCSC’78), Henri, and Alex Powers (M’72-’75). The lunch at the Barnstable Tavern could have been titled – Waiting on Godot.

This picture comes from Margi Crowell (W-67-MDC-CCSC’12) - All her campers at MDC: Tom Milky (MDC’80-’93), Ted Wilson (MDC’79-’86), Jonathan Kelly (MDC’74-’83) and Stewart Peck (MDC’76-’90) gather at Ted’s House!

60s - Charlie Durfee (W’68-’70) was featured extensively in the “Tools and Shops” Winter 2018/2019 Issue of Fine Woodworking. He ran into Richard Frost and found out they had Camp in common. It is quite an article about his shop in Maine and tools one uses to make fine furniture. Many Wono folks would remember Charlie Jon Wettenhall of Monomoy Fame now and the work that he did in in the Museum business. Wono’s sailing program in the late 60s. Got a call from Al Douglas (M’50-’61) who recounted this story. He was at the Regent Point Yacht Club in Virginia inquiring about an issue with his sailboat and wound up talking to Paul Andersen (M’72-’74). To the surprise of both of them, they both were at Camp Monomoy. Al, son of legendary “Big Al” Douglas, was in the same unit as my older brother Peter Rauschenbach for a number of years in the late 50’s and 60’s. Scat McIntyre brought Paul up from Maryland to work at the Monomoy Boathouse for him when he was the Sailing Master in the 70’s. Al was looking for Scat’s contract information. It was a great call. Ed Woelfle (M’65-’70) sent along his contact information and a note. He was a Scout, Hunter, Brave and Guide and was assigned for Dining Hall detail to Mark Peloquin. He is living in Barnstable, MA. Had an interesting dialogue with Jonathan Winer (M’68) about his editing the Sunday night Monomoy Senior Unit Pine Needle which encapsulated all the events the unit was involved with the previous week and the highlights of what was to come in the upcoming week at Monomoy. I have many years of Pine

Mike Morrison and Hap’s Band - Anyone who marched to Hap Farnham’s Colors Band (which is just about every Monomoy camper) in the early-to-mid 1960’s would have been stepping to the lively beat of Mike Morrison’s snare drum. Well, more than 55 years later, Mike (M ’62-’65) was recently discovered still drumming, now for many decades with the Lexington, MA Bicentennial Band, a community group of 70+ musicians. A long-time resident of Lexington, this grandfather of three is semi-retired from a career in software engineering for various healthcare applications.

Amazing how it works but...four Monomoy Campers got together at their 50th Yale Reunion - Left to right: Tom Cleveland (M’50’s), Tom Herman (M’57-‘61), Michael Yogg (M’58-‘63), John MacIlroy (M’58-‘60)

Former pillars of camp society in the 60’s through the 80’s - Ed and Sheri Kavanagh – are now living in Maine. Sheri was the Camp Nurse – there were long lines – and Ed was a Counselor, Head counselor and on the first team of Supervisors when Monomoy and Wono merged in the mid-70’s.

Where’s Pranikoff when you need him?

Needles which will start to work their way out through the Alumni Face Book Website. Jonathan had forgotten entirely about writing this newsletter but he did wind up as a professional journalist. He lives in Bethesda, MD. 70s - Chris Sigler (M’74-’76) and his wife Leslie stopped by July 27th for a look at Camp. He was last with us in the mid-70s. We had a great talk about the old days. Springfield College was a prime part of his life and the icons – Rick “Otis” Moyer, Ken Klatka, Dr. Frost (Frosty’s dad) – were a central part of our talk. Of course there was also his time in the JC Unit with Dave Farrar leading the charge along with Phil Sawyer, Andy Piccus, Ed Barber and others. A ton of memories and a great walk about camp. Of course the final stop was the camp store!! John Wettenhall (M’60’s –‘70’s ) is currently serving as Director of the George Washington University Museum. He has a fan club from his days at Monomoy who keep me apprised of his travels. He has been a museum director for over two

decades, serving for nine years as Executive Director of The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Florida, leading a $150 million capital and endowment transformation. His previous experience includes architectural projects and outdoor sculpture initiatives at the Cheekwood Museum of Art in Nashville and the Birmingham Museum of Art. Dr. Wetenhall served as President of the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh and as Interim Director of The Miami Art Museum (now Perez). A scholar of 19th and 20th century public sculpture, he has taught art history at the University of Minnesota, Santa Clara University, and Stanford. He is a frequent speaker at major museum conferences and is currently writing on the purposes, values, and “business” of museums. A long way from his last council ring.

You Can Go Back to Camp Again!!

N OV E M B E R 2 – 4, 2018 WEE K E N D A little more than a year ago today, we had the pleasure of experiencing a group of former ACs (from 1997) return to camp for a small AC class year reunion. This was a lot of fun. The group spent a lot of time at camp reminiscing, walking the grounds, and re-acquainting. At the end of the day, the group adjourned to Chillingsworth in Brewster with Henri – our erstwhile Alumni Director.

Where else but the sign at the entrance to camp?

From front to back: Kathy Culver (CCSC’88’97 & P ’08-‘17 ), Michelle Riffelmacher (CCSC’89-‘98), Christa Smerjian (CCSC’93-’98), Mati Luik (CCSC’92-’97), Matt Rideout (CCSC’92-’02) and Jon Vatner (CCSC’89-’98).

Waiting for Rest Period to end.

Two years in Cabin 20 – premium housing!

Back to the scene of Cup Night Shots. Kathy Culver, Christa Smerjian, Michelle Riffelmacher, Mati Luik, Jon Vatner, and Matt Rideout at the Outdoor Theatre. How many great Final Camp Shows and Early Shows?

Reunions... All Over the World

Santa Monica OC T O B E R 2 0 1 8

Well…and now for something completely different. Our alumni bandwagon ventured down to Santa Monica to enjoy the sights and sounds of a beautiful coastal California town and the pier that runs out into the ocean. It was a great setting for our reunion at the Hotel Casa Del Mar in Santa Monica. We had a good group of alumni, campers and friends that made this an enormously pleasant way to spend an afternoon. Attending were: Laurie Gardner (CCSC ’79-’80), Alice Hafter Frankston (CCSC’79-’83), Heloise Frankston (CCSC’14-’19), Alexandra Benjamin (CCSC’93-’99, ’00-’01 & ’10), Julie Moyer Schwachenwald (CCSC’76-’88 & ’89), her husband Chris Schwachenwald, camper Sophie Schwachenwald (MDC’16-’19), Colleen Chan (MDC’14), BB Richardson (MDC’08-CCSC’20), Whitney Rauschenbach (MDC’87-CCSC’00), Alexander Rauschenbach (MDC’92-CCSC’05 & ’06’10), Kelsey Nelson, Ken Passeri, Rong Passeri, Cheryl Kimberley (CCSC’80-’20), Yongjun Song (P’13’20), Song Rauschenbach (MDC’13-CCSC’20), Phanuel Rauschenbach (MDC’15-CCSC’20) and finally our wonderful photographer Kati Haberstock (P’08-’20).

Washington, DC APRI L 2019

Well…there are reunions and then there are reunions. This reunion held this past spring at the Old Ebbitt Grill in Washington, DC portended to be well attended but instead transitioned into a tight reunion with young and older and a lot in between. It was an evening of conversation, recollections and introductions. It was a great event. Attending were Matt Roper (MDC’91‘07), Ellen Kaufman Feldman (W’64-CCSC’84), Yao Levi Dyson (CCSC’17-’18), David Post (M’73-’74) and John Stinchfield – a classmate of Henri’s from his days at the Mount Hermon School, now NorthfieldMt.Hermon. It was great talking with Ellen, whose brothers Andy and Don went to Monomoy for quite some time. And as well with David who was in Cabin 3 (Jr. Scouts) and Cabin 6 (Scouts). Matt Roper was a Raftco person and great friend of Garran Peterson, our Sailing Master. Also attending were Song and Phanuel Rauschenbach and their mother. Ironic that they seem to show up at these reunions.

Also attending were veteran campers Song Rauschenbach (MDC’13-CCSC’20), Phanuel “Didi” Rauschenbach (MDC’15-CCSC’20) and their mother Yongjun Song (P’13-’20).

The Otis Chronicles

THOUGHTS WHI L E RI DI NG: BY OTI S What a thrill it is for me to welcome back former campers/parents to our campus. During the course of the off season as well as during our summer camping season we have a very large number of alumni that return to campus for a visit. It might be to show their family around campus, to drop of a child for a summer session, or even just being in the neighborhood and thought they would stop in to see what their old camp looks like today. It is magical to see the excitement of the former campers as they ask questions about the campus; they often ask the whereabouts of former staff and/or former bunk mates; they love looking through the volumes of photo albums stored on the sun porch of the big house; or to make a bee line to the dining hall to look for their name on a plaque from 25 years ago. The 25 years does not diminish the excitement of their visit and in fact usually adds to the thrill of the visit. Hey Otis, they ask, do you remember the Tomcat Tidalwavers game when we beat the JC III’s/JC IV’s. What a game. Remember the time you caught me out after curfew on the beach? The new pool must be great compared to our little tiny one down by the beach. Does the bike ride still go by the camp with all of the campers yelling and screaming? That would be the Pan Massachusetts Challenge I remind them. Yes it still goes by and they raised $63 million for cancer research this past summer. WOW!

• Experience • Local Knowledge • Follow-through • Results Call, text or email me for help with your next move.



Hey Otis, the place looks great. Remember the old dingy art room which was a 2 stall garage? That is a pretty nice Art Center you have now. How is the rifle range and is Riflery and BB’s just as popular? Well, we no longer shoot 22’s and have moved on to air rifles. It is still really popular. Is the sailing program still great? I remember sailing in the SMUG Cup one night and seeing you in a boat hanging on for dear life! I remember our visits to Long Pond. Otis, do you believe in Crazy Annie? Hey, come with me and I will show you our new Fitness in the Wild and our new Obstacle Illusion course. The campers still love archery, arts and crafts, woodworking, land sports, tennis, BB’s, playing tether ball, and all of the old stand byes. However, would you guess that cooking, GAGA, Koob, carpet ball, whiffle ball, conditioning and our new Traverse Wall are now soo popular? .Otis, how is Rick, Sherry, Leo, Debbie, Julie, Casper, Jay, Ed, Carol, Al, Butch, Sally, Dean, Frosty, Leif, Phil, and the names go on and on. Well, they are not here any longer, but without these giants of the CCSC past we would not be where we are today. We miss them all and appreciate the love, commitment, devotion and skill they all brought to CCSC. They all helped create Magic Moments, Great Life Experiences; and of course the reason that all of our alumni love to come back to check out the Old Camp. Thanks for coming and come back and see us again as soon as you can. By the way. Please come back in 2022 as we will be celebrating our 100th birthday. It is going to be special.

Group Rentals

Dear Alumni: The 2019 Group Business season was another successful one at CCSC! We hosted 87 independent groups on the property from April to October. Several of these groups had alumni in attendance that I was able to connect with and we hosted a unique and beautiful BBQ rehearsal dinner single event in our Art Center for alumni Michael McKinstry & Sarah Smith who met at Camp as counselors while working in the Day Camp. Our location and facility have so much to offer during the shoulder season months and is a great opportunity for you as alumni to spread the word if you hear of someone looking for an option to host an event, a school class trip or special weekend retreat. We rent out our cabins and have full meal plans for all size groups from 20 to 700+ people. Largest Group: Our largest group this year was the MS Challenge Cape Cod Walk fundraiser with over 500 attendees for three days walking around Cape Cod to raise money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Association during a September weekend. The weekend is one of their largest and most successful fundraisers of the year. Furthest Group: The Hathaway Brown school, an all girls school, travels from Cleveland Ohio with 70 students! They load their coach busses first thing in the morning and travel all day to get to Cape Cod. This group takes advantage of Whale Watching, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute and gives their students a unique perspective of the east coast and an amazing trip for these students. They have been traveling to CCSC for close to 20 years! Most Unique: Deaf-Blind Contact Center (DBCC) in Boston is a social organization of and for people who are deaf or hard of hearing and have a vision loss. DBCC hosted a wellness retreat on our property with their members and plan to attend again in the 2020. Types of Groups Served: School Class Trips

November, 2019 Dear Alumni, You’ll be pleased and proud to know that your generosity to the Grant W. Koch Scholarship Fund enabled more than 25 children to be at camp last summer. In addition to Cape Cod Sea Camps, some of these scholarship recipients were at Brewster Day Camp, Camp Favorite, and Wellfleet Bay Natural History Day Camp. While each camp has its own special flavor, traditions and customs, the children’s experiences fundamentally were similar to your own at Cape Cod Sea Camps, whether you were a camper five years ago or 50 years ago! The goals of children’s camping remain unchanged over the years, but, of course, the means of attaining those goals vary just as so many other aspects of our daily lives change. Camp provides unique opportunities for growth. Expanding the number of people who can be part of camping is an important and positive undertaking. This charitable undertaking is directly attributable to your generous and continuing support, and we appreciate your tangible confidence in the value of camping. Please dig deep to make camp possible for children who otherwise wouldn’t be able to have this life-altering experience. As it was important to us when we were growing up, so is it important to today’s children. Please continue to be as generous as you can and be sure that every contribution, regardless of size, makes an important difference. Also note that the Fund is classified as a 501 (c) (3) entity, allowing certain tax advantages under IRS rules, and better than 95% of contributions go directly to scholarships. We thank you, and, far more important, so do the children. Sincerely, Rick Francis, Trustee Mike Halperson, Trustee

Please include your email address with your contribution, it makes it easier to keep in touch!

Ryan Meehan - MDC Service Cup Winner with Rick “Otis” Moyer

In 1922, Captain and Emma Del determined that the highest honor to be bestowed at Camp Monomoy and then later at Camp Wono would be the Award for Service, expressing their idea that service to each other – individually and as a community – is fundamental to successful living. In 1939, Camp Wono awarded its first Service Cup and that tradition lives on at the Cape Cod Sea Camps.


The Service Award is awarded to “one who contributes selflessly to the welfare of others; is helpful, without concern for oneself; performs work or duties for others; has been an outstanding, positive role model for both campers and staff throughout the four years of the leadership training program; has high standards and integrity and is sincere and honest.” Additional Awards are given to Outstanding First Year Teen Leaders in both the Monomoy and Wono units. Recepients are LT1s who stand out among other first year Teen Leaders as a positive leaders and contributors in their respective units and to the camp community. Second and third year LTs are eligible to receive the Directors’ Efficiency Award. The LTs who receive this award exhibit a high degree of enthusiasm, positive leadership and effectiveness as a Teen Leader. They also have a proven capability for performing as an outstanding leader in the LT unit and in the overall camp community. 26 2019 JibSheet ·

40th Pan Mass Challenge

The iconic “Da Hedge”

This summer marked the 40th Pan Mass Challenge Ride, and the Cape Cod Sea Camps 26th year with a riding team. This year’s team included Brian Lutes (CCSC 1985-2019), Andrew “Crash” Sims (CCSC/MDC 1981-2019), Tom “Pranny” Pranikoff (CCSC 1970-1985), Mike Moore (MDC 2012-2019), Rob Foley (MDC 2015-2017), first time rider Aria Lange (CCSC 20172018), and community members Sam Duncan and Kate Schoch.

m on ur tea ering o e h c ” ge Da Hed rs at “ Campe

There was also a second camp team riding the PMC. Team “No Name” included alumni Sean Thibert (MDC 1995-2006), Dan Guariglio (MDC 1992-2006), and Tyler Turgeon (CCSC/MDC 2011-2019). Team No Name had a very strong ride, particularly in their first year out. The PMC is a 200 mile bike ride that raises money for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute – this year raising $63 million! As a team, the Cape Cod Sea Camps raised just under $100,000. But perhaps CCSC’s more important contribution is “DaHedge”. On the 2nd day of this 2 day event, the riders pedal down Rt 6A right in front of the Cape Cod Sea Camps. The resident campers and staff, get up early on that Sunday morning. They all head down, past the front fields, and line the hedges along 6A. As a group, they become “Da-Hedge”.

“DA HEDGE” TEAM Front: Aria Lange, Sam Duncan, Kate Schoch, Mike Moore Back: Andrew “Crash” Sims, Tom Pranny Pranikoff, Harry Long, Brian Lutes, Otis Moyer, Rob Foley

Da-Hedge is certainly the largest cheering section of the entire event. The campers make signs of support. They have funny hats and noise makers. It’s a huge party, and after 150 miles of riding it is a welcome sight to the riders. Riders look forward to seeing the cheering campers every year. Many stop to high five the campers lining the route. The CCSC Team stops there to meet family and friends, and thank volunteers. Other than the finish line, Da-Hedge is the most anticipated part of the ride!

Campers, alumni, and friends celebrating Schuyler’s life

T HOU G H T S O N SCH U YLER The Cape Cod Sea Camps is steeped in traditions: Cup Night; SOGE; awesome sailing; Camp Wono; Camp Monomoy; Monomoy Day Camp; plaques; final camp plays; Summerfest; I can and I will; Where there’s a will there’s a way; Afterglow; and of course ‘Best Summer Ever’. This is just scratching the surface of the myriad of great traditions. A very meaningful tradition that has developed over the last 26 years is our involvement in the Pan Massachusetts Challenge (PMC). We are recognized and praised for our commitment to the cause of helping to find a cure for cancer. This year of 2019, the PMC will raise 6o million to be funneled into the world renowned Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. Our commitment is legendary in so many ways. One of which is CCSC campers and staff along with our riding team is very close to raising a total of 2 million dollars for the cause. We are appreciated for the 140 volunteers that we send out to help with the infrastructure and the function of helping the 6,500 riders safely negotiate the 192 mile course from Sturbridge, MA to Provincetown. What we are most recognized for and appreciated for is DA’HEDGE. Our camp is the most iconic part of the ride as we cheer the riders along Route 6A from behind the hedge in front of camp. The 125 different team members, during that time, remember the inspiration we received from our beloved Captain Schuyler O’Brien. Sky became our Captain and inspirational leader as he entered 6th grade at Nauset Middle School 17 years ago. Sky was battling cancer (Ewing’s Sarcoma). Sky lost his battle with this dreadful disease this fall. In a celebration of his life held at CCSC on September 22, 2019 over 200 attended to pay tribute and loving respect for the courage, and his will to fight on in spite of having cancer for the majority of his life. Sky was just months away from receiving his Ph. D. degree from the University of Utah. Sky was doing research in the quest of finding a cure for ‘His’ cancer. (Ewing’s Sarcoma) Hopefully, with the help of many of his lab partners and faculty that loved him dearly he will be awarded his Ph. D. degree in June of 2020, posthumously. If any person deserved this honor it is Schuyler. We that have ridden do so for CCSC PMC Team Schuyler Team Logan. From this point on we will be called the CCSC PMC Team Dr. Schuyler Team Logan. God Bless you Schuyler and thank you for being a blessed and loving part of our lives. Otis Director of the Monomoy Day Camp and 25 year PMC rider

Dr. Donald C. “Justin” Mell, Jr. passed away this past November, after a brief illness, surrounded by his family. Having graduated from Yale and receiving a PhD from the University of Pennsylvannia, he then taught English Literature at the University of Delaware for 47 years – a true gentleman and scholar. Of particular note is that he and his brother (Skippy) attended Camp Monomoy from 1945-46. This experience nourished a love for sailing and the Cape which he enjoyed for many decades. Don is the father of Don Mell (M’71-CCSC’79.)

Joan Williamson of Scituate passed away at the age of 87 on 12/1/2017. She was the wife of Dick Williamson who worked as the Sailing Master at Camp Wono from 1966 to 1969. She was the mother of Joanne (W’66-’74), John (M’67-’69) and Rick (M’66-’74) who attended camp. They lived at the bottom of Linnell Landing in Brewster for a while when Dick taught in Orleans. But with the advent of six kids in the family, they had to relocate to North Easton, MA for better pay. Dick was a very talented boat builder and during his tenure at Wono he built 4 Wono “Specials”. Many Monomoy and Wono sailors took advantage of them – particularly on Sunday Regattas where they had their own class. Joan worked as a librarian in the Norwell School System for many years. She liked being outdoors, bird watching, sailing, gardening, knitting and reading. A woman for all seasons.
