We are grateful for the quick response of firefighters who extinguished the blaze in difficult circumstances given the distance of the Camp from the road.
This is a very sad and frustrating development for all those who have worked to so hard to improve the Camp over the last several years, and especially for all those who use the Camp in their teaching and research. We will be assessing the likely impact on our programs for the summer, and also on MODS, over the next few days. Our intention is to build back as soon as possible, and to proceed with our plans to further improve the Camp for teaching and research for all Yale students.
Thank you to all who responded to the fire, and to all those who helped in various ways to be sure that all of our community members were safe.
