… All this and more will happen to you! Some of our staff spend a summer working with children and it literally becomes a life changing experience. Camp can open doors that expose you to so much more because of the connections to children and peers in our camp community.  Over the course of the summer you’ll be working with about 135 other adults and about 1200 campers who will come through our gates.  Camp is a place where you are constantly provided opportunities for positive interaction with those around you. Not too many years ago you were a child and I’m sure you remember those adults who had a profound affect on your young life.  The camp experience is something that opens doors as it helps you to develop leadership, collaboative, communication, and career skills that will carry you forward in life while having fun!

I am grateful for everyone I interacted with at this magical place. That you to each one of you who contributed to me finding happiness again. I’m grateful that I had such an amazing family this summer. I cannot remember the last time I have been this happy. Thankful for waking up here every morning. For each pink cloud that made up each sunset. For every petal on every flower. For great stargazing spots. For every inch of this camp.
