“I first went to sleep away camp when I was 7.  My mom took on an extra job so that we could afford it. Every year after that, we figured out a way to make camp happen until finally, I was a counselor.  I loved every minute of camp … even the difficult moments and today, I know how much the experiences have influenced me.

I strongly believe that today’s kids need camp more than ever before to get away from the pressured world in which they live.  Camp is the perfect place for children and teens to unplug and connect … with themselves, each other and great role models.

The Camp Experience – DONE RIGHT – has the most potential to help young people become healthy, productive adults. That reality motivates me to continue my work … for the kids and for my mom.”
