HOLIDAY OF THE WEEK: February 28th is National Tooth Fairy Day

As anyone who has ever been a camper or counselor at Camp Mataponi knows, Gladys is our official Camp Tooth Fairy. Gladys is notorious for never missing a tooth and always makes sure to swoop in late at night when the toothless camper is sleeping and leave a present. You won’t see Gladys…EVER.. as she magically appears when no one is looking. As far as we know, Gladys is our very own tooth fairy!
Campers, tell us your tooth fairy’s name. Do you know it?  What does she leave you ? Email your answers to



Celebrating birthdays in February this week are..

Campers: Sydney C, Sophie D, Jordan E, Brooke R, Ayla R

Staff: Lauren H (New counselor for 2017)
