“Camps are part of the fabric of our national life. They are often safe havens in the storms that blow across everyone’s life and seem particularly difficult for children and teenagers, places where people can get back to basics and remember, or learn for the first time, what’s really important. Our families today come in all sizes and shapes, but they all want the same thing: a good job, safety and security, the chance to build a better life for themselves and their kids. Camps are one of the essential building blocks for so many people.” -Hillary Clinton, during a speech to the American Camp Association, March 19, 2015

Camp Olmsted is located in Cornwall-on-Hudson, New York, and has been serving children from New York City’s neighborhoods for more than 110 years. Our program serves boys and girls between the ages of 6 and 14 and often provides their first outdoor camping experience. During our program campers enjoy swimming, hiking, sports, art, reading, and ropes challenge course activities. They also get to express themselves through performances and creative writing. These activities are designed to build their self-esteem and enhance their social skills. Our campers leave their time at Olmsted with new friends, new skills, and more confidence. Yes, twelve days can have an impact that lasts a lifetime!

Hillary was in Chicago today to deliver the keynote speech at the American Library Association conference.  A few of our friends  were there! (Hi, John West and Jim Livesey!)


Hillary Clinton delivered the keynote speech Tuesday morning in Chicago at the American Library Association’s annual conference.

The Park Ridge native and best-selling author spoke about the importance of librarians, their jobs and the survival of libraries.

“I believe libraries and democracy go hand in hand,” she said to loud cheers.

Clinton opened her remarks with humorous references to her presidential campaign, saying that books got her through good times and bad times. She made history by becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major political party. Prior to that, she was Secretary of State, a U.S. senator from New York and the first lady.

Clinton kept her remarks on topic and positive, trying not to rehash the 2016 election except to say that books and a couple other things helped her recover from the loss.

“Long walks in the woods and the occasional glass of chardonnay,” she joked.

Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that the U.S. is in the midst of one of the most important battles in the country’s history ― and librarians are on the “front lines.”

The 2016 Democratic presidential nominee praised libraries for being essential to a free society and encouraged Americans to fight against President Donald Trump’s “deeply disturbing” proposed cuts to their federal funding.

“The work you do is at the heart of an open, inclusive and diverse society,” Clinton told a crowd at the American Library Association’s conference in Chicago. “I believe libraries and democracy go hand-in-hand.”

Even Hillary Clinton is down to see Wonder Woman, and it just might have something to do with President Donald Trump.

No, Hillary Clinton hasn’t seen Wonder Woman — yet. Clinton appeared in a surprise taped message at the Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards on June 13, and in a brief speech honoring actor and director Elizabeth Banks, she made a pointed, crowd-pleasing nod to both the pop-culture phenomenon and Donald Trump‘s presidency.Clinton admitted she hasn’t yet gotten a chance to see the new female-driven blockbuster, but told the audience: “I’m going to, in part because it’s directed by the fabulous Patty Jenkins.” She then went on to draw a subtly sly comparison between the Amazonian superhero’s storyline and her own role in the 2016 presidential election. “Something tells me that a movie about a strong, powerful woman fighting to save the world from a massive international disaster,” Clinton teased, “is right up my alley.” The quip drew a roar of laughter and applause from the crowd gathered in Beverly Hills for the ceremony.

BEVERLY HILLS, California — Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama and Sen. Kamala Harris made surprise appearances at Women in Film’s awards ceremony with special videos, while veteran newsman Dan Rather called the group’s work toward gender parity in entertainment an example of “basic American decency, tolerance and generosity.”

Comedian Jessica Williams hosted the unexpectedly patriotic Crystal + Lucy Awards Tuesday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where F-bombs flew freely and “Wonder Woman” earned applause anytime it was mentioned.

Clinton said she hadn’t seen “Wonder Woman” yet, but planned to: “Something tells me that a movie about a strong powerful woman fighting to save the world from a massive international disaster is right up my alley,” she said before introducing Crystal Award-winner Elizabeth Banks.
