One of these friends, the late Molly DeHaven, also a former camper and counselor, joined Sunny as a co-director from 1973 to 1986. Molly contributed much to Clearwater’s success through her superb intelligence, experience and wit.
Like Halokwe, Sunny’s years as camp director molded her camping philosophy. To Sunny, having a camp experience is more than just fun, it is a major factor in wholesome maturing. Clearwater, she believed, was the ultimate training ground for today’s women. At camp, one is stretched. Girls need to be innovative, get along with people from different backgrounds, and to be confident in their own abilities. Such flexibility and resourcefulness are natural products of camp life. Sunny took pride in Clearwater’s noncompetitive atmosphere, where each girl strives to do her best, and the fact that the camp community was inclusive.
