Uncle Bill celebrates 50 summers at Breezy Point Day Camp
If you asked any camper or staff member who attended camp between 1971 and current times about their memories from Breezy Point, “Uncle Bill” would most likely be brought up.
Uncle Bill, or Bill Wright Sr., started as the Program Director in 1971 at the time when Breezy Point was owned by Pete and Elenore Lorenc.
He has now been the Program Director for 50 summers, and is currently living his dream as a co-owner of Breezy Point Day School and Camp alongside his wife, son, and daughter-in-law. Uncle Bill brought his two sons, Bill and Bob, to Breezy Point back in 1971, and attending and working at the camp has become a family tradition.
This past summer, Breezy Point celebrated Uncle Bill’s wonderful achievement of 50 summers as the Program Director. Throughout the past 50 years, Uncle Bill has impacted countless lives and has been a beam of light every morning at line-up, dressing in silly hats and singing “Little Red Caboose” and the camp song called “Iy-iy-iy-iykus.”
Uncle Bill’s passion for working with children is evident from the smile on his face every day, and he continues to serve as a friend, mentor, and teacher to many.
Please join in celebrating Uncle Bill’s 50th year as he continues to leave a legacy of love, compassion, and wisdom at Breezy Point.
