Once again, Camp Highlight was a magical, educational, and thrilling adventure! For one week, 59 campers met with old friends and made new ones.
There were dozens of activities to choose from. Sports oriented campers signed up for old favorites like Ultimate Frisbee, soccer, and football and new takes on old standbys: Blind Volleyball, Battleball, and (of course) Quidditch! 2017 was the first year of our MakerSpace! Campers were encouraged to construct anything they could imagine from wood, rubber bands, glue, string, and more. The creativity continued in arts and crafts, painting, and even a drag tutorial! With so much to do, boredom was abolished for a full week!
Having fun is just as important as becoming a better person and "shining brighter." Highlighters proved they were up to the task by practicing their Virtues: peace, honesty, generosity, acceptance, respect, courage, responsibility, cooperation, and unity. Together, they helped create an atmosphere of compassion and kindness. Campers became more independent, confident, and socially skilled as the week went on.
Camp Highlight may be over but the community is still here! Mark your calendar with our upcoming events!
