What makes a super hero a super hero? There are lots of opinions on how to answer this question but at camp, heroes are the everyday person that uses their life, passion and skills to make the world better. Crystal Lake Park District uses a special theme day to show their campers what exactly makes a Super Hero. In fact, this year, they showed the campers a great example - our own Executive Director, Gordie Kaplan!
We agree with the Crystal Lake Park District! Gordie has demonstrated exactly how to help others. During his 50+ year career, Gordie has helped develop the Standards Program which has made camps safer, has managed multiple funding programs that have sent thousands of children to camp each summer and continues to help and mentor any camp professional that asks.
