Camp Capella in Dedham has a new director this week after Dana Mosher announced his resignation from a post he's held for nine years.

Camp Capella is a summer camp on Phillips Lake in Dedham that serves children and adults with disabilities. It gives campers the chance to do things they normally wouldn't have the opportunity to experience, like boating, fishing, and simply following a trail through the woods.

Dana has been an important part of the success of the camp, taking great pride in the programs it offers. And you just have to listen to him talk about the campers to understand the satisfaction he gets from their joy at experiencing all the Maine outdoors has to offer. As a matter of fact, he told WABI-TV that he's not leaving completely, just stepping down from the Executive Director's post. Dana will still be at camp in the summer, taking campers out on his boat in Phillips Lake.

The new Executive Director will be Laurie Turner of Alton, whose focus will be on fundraising. Before Mosher left, he announced an expansion of the camp that will include new trails and two new seasonable cabins. Additional parking will also be built for the camp.
