It is with great sorrow that I announce Marie Wixner’s retirement from 4-H Camp Wyomoco and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Wyoming County, effective as of April 30th. After a quarter of a century of dedicated service to 4-H Camp Wyomoco and CCE, we can’t express how much we value her dedication to our 4-H community and how much we will miss her moving forward.

Marie has been an integral part of CCE Wyoming for the past 25 years, and she has worn many hats in her time with us. From teaching Ag in the Classroom to leading after school 4-H clubs, she has always jumped head first into the forefront of innovative programming. Of course, above all, Marie has been a tireless champion, caretaker, and advocate for 4-H Camp Wyomoco. In her myriad roles with camp over the years and, most recently, in her role as camp director and administrator, Marie has ensured that thousands of campers, staff, and their families have had summer experiences that they’ll treasure for the rest of their lives. Marie’s contributions to camp—and to our organization as a whole—will always be cherished, and her lasting legacy is evident 4-H Camp Wyomoco’s incredible alumni network of past campers and staff, many of whom have gone on to send their own children to camp. Her hard work, commitment, and dedication to all things camp will be greatly missed. Those campers who have been impacted by Marie will know that there’s truly only one Marie, and that filling her shoes will be an almost impossible task. We wish her well during the next steps of her journey and look forward to celebrating her incredible tenure with CCE.

In tribute to Marie, CCE will be hosting a retirement party at 4-H Camp Wyomoco later this summer (Date TBD). Stay tuned for an official announcement! We can’t wait to honor Marie’s esteemed career with our camp and 4-H families.

On behalf of everyone at CCE, I would like to express our immense gratitude for Marie’s service, and wish her the best of luck moving forward!
