In addition to the many warm comments posted by alumni with the announcement of Jane’s passing,

  • Peter Dustin sent along the following “Farewell to Jane” message and a photo of items Jane had passed along to him when he took over her role as Camp Tripmaster.
  • We’ve also gone through our photo library and included a gallery of shots of Jane taken over the years.
  • And alum Stuart Zimmerman has sent along an artwork he designed in memory of Jane which we are also including here.

    As a 1958 camp craft instructor myself, I honor Jane’s role for fostering camper’s creative spirit. In a manner like the fun camper’s experienced painting their paddles with personalized designs, I share my love to inspire creative original artisticdevelopment as in my artwork example below.

      Stuart: Please try resending your artwork to my e-mail address, as an attachment and I will see if I can get it uploaded. Did not come through cleanly in your original note to me.

      • Stuart Zimmerman says:

        Doug: I have now decided not to associate my intended picture with my above message because the step-wise process for me to manage how to do this is not very straightforward and convenient for me at this time. Thank you very much for the attention you have given to me regarding your possible file transfer solutions to the upload issues involved.. Stuart

      • Stuart Zimmerman says:

        Doug: I once again have decided to include my artwork after the challenges of file size were resolved in followup work. Thanks again Doug. I also hope that the design quality and color depictions help to reflect the true roots of the native Americans that founded this region that we have all enjoyed so much over the years. Stuart.

    I went to Camp Otter the last 4 years it was open and I think I’d still be going today if it remained open. It was an amazing place and remains very close to my heart. I am so sorry to hear of Janes passing. She was quite the woman! Strong and secure! I remember her outfitting me and my pack for a 7 day trip… I was soooo proud, the pack was almost as heavy as me, or so it seemed. Jane adjusted the trump strap and I think she gave me some gorp and said ” you can do it” and of course I did… And still do it today! Otter and her people touched us all.
