Stu Peoples, executive director of Big Brothers/Big Sisters for the Cape and Islands, knows that all too well, after years of dealing with hundreds of children.
That's why during the summer Big Brothers/Big Sisters, which is best known for matching adults with children in a mentoring relationship, focuses on providing camperships for almost 200 Cape and islands children. "Probably the majority of the kids we send to camp are between 7 and 13," Peoples said. "We send kids primarily to residence camps," but some go to day camps on the Cape. "I started this back when I came here 30 years ago and realized we deal primarily with the single parent, primarily the single working mother, and the kids have a lot of time on their hands in the summer," Peoples said. "They're too old for baby sitters and too young to have a summer job. We get the kids into some structured activities so mom doesn't have to worry about them while she's at work." Big Brothers/Big Sisters has contracts with heavily endowed camps that offer substantial savings for financially stressed families. A private four-week summer overnight camp can run up to $6,500. Peoples said the well-regarded Brantwood camp in New Hampshire charges only $250 for 16 days of camp, and Big Brothers/Big Sisters splits the cost with the campers' families.

For 33 years, when people thought of the Big Brothers Big Sisters program of the Cape and Islands, they thought of Stu Peoples.Stu Peoples, director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cape Cod, plans to retire after 33 years overseeing the program."I was beginning to sense that I'm an aging prizefighter, and I want to leave while I'm still on my feet," he says, adding that a fresh perspective will be beneficial. Peoples, 62, has announced his plans to retire this year from the program he helped found.He says he feels he's leaving it in good hands, especially since the local organization merged in June with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay in Boston.The merger is intended to give the local organization access to a professional fundraiser or development expert, who will work solely out of the Cape office, Peoples said.He said the local organization will maintain its board, but it will be strictly an advisory group."In the long run it's beneficial to the Cape for financial stability," Peoples said.The organization operates with a budget of more than $700,000, most of which is raised locally."I see more and more the challenge of the job being fundraising," Peoples said."I love the job.I love the kids.I love dealing with the families and the volunteers.But I don't like waking up at night worrying about a shortfall in the campership program."Peoples admits he's not a corporate-type person.He doesn't have a cell phone, or even a TV - a fact that has proved a bit maddening to the youths he has been a foster parent to over the years.With his shoulder-length hair and habit of riding his bicycle 12 miles each way from Mashpee to his office in Centerville every day, Peoples has become an iconic figure on the Cape.Raised in Natick, Peoples became a volunteer with VISTA after graduating from Northeastern University.A banker friend on the Cape, familiar with People's work at a youth center on a Minnesota reservation, asked him to head the new Big Brothers Big Sisters program.The Cape was ripe for the program, Peoples said."Some of the school systems had more than half of the kids from single-parent families back in those days."Now, he said, "We see increased numbers of kids being raised by a grandparent.We see more single dads out there," Peoples said."I was beginning to sense that I'm an aging prizefighter, and I want to leave while I'm still on my feet," said Peoples, who was a Golden Gloves boxer.
