Letter from the Camp Director
Hi, I’m new here!
My name is Matt Cornish, and consider this my smiling handshake as I join the community of Camp Beech Cliff. I am so delighted and excited to join this community, to meet you all, and to play a role in the amazing work Camp Beech Cliff has been doing for so many years. My wife, Melissa, my daughter Imogen, and I are thrilled that we can now call Mount Desert Island home, and we are looking forward to the chance to work with the amazing children, parents, and teens who we have heard so much about in a place that clearly values the connection that we all have while living in this beautiful location.
I so look forward to the opportunity to meet you; the parents, campers, staff, alumni, and many, many others who have a deep love for Camp Beech Cliff and the amazing work we do. Please stop by and say hello, or if we bump into each other at the grocery store, don’t be shy. Heck, come take a walk up the waterfront hill with me. You are the reason we do what we do, and I can’t wait to learn more about you.
Thank you for welcoming us to this giant family. I hope that we can continue to make Camp Beech Cliff a place of fun, learning, and life changing moments for many years to come.
Matt Cornish, Camp Director
