It is with a heavy, heavy heart that I share that Marcy Brower passed away this morning in her home.
In the coming days, we will share an additional tribute to this woman who was remarkable. She was truly remarkable. We wanted to share this news as soon as we were able so that all who knew Marcy could begin to support each other.
This time in our world is already not easy. This makes it even harder. I know that those who loved Marcy and continue to love Bob wish we could encircle Bob and his family during this. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 and social distancing practices, we will do our part to keep Bob and all people safe by providing thoughtful support in any way we can from afar. Please know that I share in your grief and sadness. The camp community has lost a legend and the world has lost a fierce advocate for social justice. May we all continue to support each other as we work together to continue to change the world through camp.
The Brower family has asked in lieu of flowers, to please consider a donation to the Marcy & Bob Brower Campership Fund with the American Camp Association, Illinois. You can read her obituary here.
I will share more information on ways we can celebrate Marcy’s legacy as I learn of them and once her family has had some time to grieve together. We send all our love to Bob, his children, and his grandchildren.
