Trevor Charles plans for overnight camp
- an overnight camp, 3-5 days, at a prep school in CT.
- These can be very lucrative and the one that Tiina runs in Amherst makes a lot.
- Trevor thinks there is a solid market for it of interested kids and parents. He has a lot of contacts out there and has done a lot of prep work already.
- Dan has discussed with him to see how CUC can get involved, that long term it would be something we would like running and building on as an offering (and revenue stream).
- He was prepared to run it all himself but is agreeable to CUC ownership if he is given a large profit share.
- The board has agreed that we are generally ok with this. And Dan said he would talk to him further and bring more details back to the board before any commitment.
- We will discuss financials, liability, staffing etc with Trevor
Set next tentative meeting date – Jan/Feb
