CMW Strategic Plan
In the spring of 2012, the Merrie-Woode Board of Trustees adopted a Strategic Plan to inspire and guide the Directors, Board, and Staff over the next five years. The CMW Strategic Plan focuses on seven important elements that are critical to the continued success of Camp Merrie-Woode: enrollment, traditions, programming, land and facilities, staff and leadership, financial resources, and technology. The objectives of this Strategic Plan are fully consistent with Merrie-Woode’s mission and vision.
