Garnet Hill’s Fifth Annual Cleanup Day at Copper Cannon

Copper Cannon 2013

Garnet Hill employees arrived with rakes, shovels, hammers, paintbrushes, and work gloves Thursday, May 9, for Garnet Hill’s Fifth Annual Community Service Day to help open Copper Cannon, a local camp that serves underprivileged New Hampshire youth. Since its inception in 1963, the camp has served more than 20,000 children in New Hampshire with a week of free summer camp.

This year, Copper Cannon is celebrating its 50th anniversary, and the spirit of giving back was contagious. When Snapper Rock, a Garnet Hill Kids supplier, learned about the event, the company donated over 450 pieces of new swimwear for the campers and came to take part!

Garnet Hill’s philosophy of ‘giving back’ is very aligned with Snapper Rock. It was great to be able to work side by side today instead of across the table from one another.”

— Julie Rich of Snapper Rock

We are so proud to have made an impact in children’s camp experience through building new tent platforms, forging new trails, and prepping the camp for opening day. Copper Cannon is a Garnet Hill tradition. It is a team-building experience that brings people together for a worthy cause.”

— Russ Gaitskill, president of Garnet Hill
