What is a pause?
DWC is taking a pause while we search for a new program director for Summer 2023. Sarah Menke-Fish founded and directed the program and will assist in the transition of the program to a new director. To provide the best experience possible we want to make sure we have ample time to introduce someone new to the wonderful world of DWC!
