When Miss Kloberg passed away in 1995, she left the camp to Miss Jensen, who continued to improve camp with a state-of-the-art dining room, new cabins, a huge gymnasium, and countless other improvements. During Miss Jensen’s tenure as owner/director of Wa-Klo, Dr. Virginia Maurer decided to visit camp to see the changes and additions before sending her daughters there. “Ginny” was a camper in the 1950’s when Marie Jensen was just starting as a counselor. In fact, Marie was one of Ginny’s activity counselors. While Ginny’s daughters, Kim and Tammy, attended camp, Ginny would come up on weekends to assist with any medical needs in the infirmary and work with the maintenance staff to take care of the physical plant. Miss Jensen unexpectedly died during the summer of 2005 leaving Wa-Klo to Ginny to carry on the precious traditions.
Virginia E. Maurer is a prominent breast cancer surgeon on Long Island and is the founder of the Maurer Foundation for breast health education with programs for the pre-teen, teens, community and corporate world. Ginny attended Queen’s University in Canada for medical school. Dr. Maurer has continued to accomplish Miss Jensen’s vision with the expansion of the riding stables, a renovated Cracker Barrel, and building a brand new cabin “Out There.” She loves being a part of a camp that was so special to her while growing up and continuing the legacy with her daughters.
