AMC Three Mile Island Camp is managed by volunteers. The TMI Volunteer "Committee" sets policies and goals for the camp, hires the summer managers and oversees the long-term financial affairs of the Camp. The Committee helps to ensure that Three Mile continues to meet the vision articulated by one of its founders, Roswell Bigelow Lawrence, in October 1900:
But not only should the natural beauties of the island be protected and no work of man allowed to mar; but campers also should live as close to nature as the rules of hygiene and reasonable regard to comfort will allow. Golf and fine clothes should be tabooed; early hours, camp costumes, and simple fare should be the rules. Canoeing and swimming, fishing and sailing, tramping and climbing, resting and communing with nature should be the order of every day. Briefly, the island camp should never become a hotel, but remain a camp, pure and simple, where club members may find rest and live as close to nature as possible.
Comprised of fourteen members, the Three Mile Island Committee meets formally three times per year, (September, February and May). Committee member terms are four years long, with three new members recruited each year. Volunteering for the Committee is a fun way to help preserve our special island community. If you'd like more information, or would like to apply for the Committee, contact the Chair, Dave Carpenter, at email@example.com.
