A semi-retired insurance executive, William Deyesso previously spent nearly 30 years in the Massachusetts real estate sector. Beyond his professional pursuits, William Deyesso supports a variety of nonprofit organizations, including Camp Timanous of Maine.
Camp Timanous is an all-boys summer camp staffed with counselors who were former campers themselves. The camp and its counselors strive to instill integrity, independence, and responsibility, among other positive qualities, in its visitors through challenging recreation programs such as the three below.
1. Archery - Camp Timanous has seven targets varying in distance from 15 to 50 yards on its 175 acres of private land. It also offers bows with differing weight pulls for archers of all levels. Campers earn awards for excellence as well as for practicing safe habits.
2. Baseball - The camp has three competitive baseball teams divided by age that play against nearby camps. Additionally, it operates a recreational softball league with games taking place after dinner.
3. Lacrosse - The newest program at Camp Timanous is also one of its most popular. Campers looking to learn the game use the facility’s sticks and helmets for daily instruction, and informal pick-up games take place throughout the summer.
