Sad to say, M-S is changing and, in my opinion, not for the better. The KILT program has been changed from 3 weeks to 2 (and the price went up) so several, if not many, old KILTS won't be returning. Also, the staff has undergone many changes. There won't be so many familiar faces next summer in the counselor department. Whether the camp so many of us have come to know and love survives as we have known it remains to be seen.
There have been positive changes. There has been an enormous improvement in the facility itself, no question about it (its reflected in the increased prices for next summer.) But, again, just my opinion, nobody went back to camp year after year for the accomodations. The experienced, dedicated counselors and staff created a uniquely special environment, which the new counselors came to know and share each summer. Without a core group of experienced workers who loved camp as much as the families who went there year after year, I just don't see how Montecito Sequoia will be the same.
