Staff Stories: Joy

January 28, 2018


I've always loved summer camp. From the time I was little and now that I'm an adult, I knew summer camp was always going to be the place for me. But working at Camp Highlight was different it was more... extraordinary. I got the chance to work with amazing kids who came from beautiful families and had nothing but love to give. As a counselor as Camp Highlight you get to witness one of the greatest joys in life: people being their true selves. At Camp Highlight there are no judgments, no hatreds, no prejudices- kids are allowed to be who they are and respected for it. Counselors too! This camp has nothing but love and hope for a better future to give. It was an honor to work here and I can't wait to return year after year!
