Christina Bossart, Camp Director
Hello and welcome to Hidden Bay,
I am so excited to be headed into Hidden Bay's 19th summer and my 4th summer at camp.
We are a camp that is small by design but we focus on making Leadership and Character a way of life for all our campers.
You may wonder, why a Leadership Camp? Every family has their reasons for wanting a Hidden Bay camp experience, bit we have a few reasons why we think you should consider a Leadership Camp.
- We create an environment of trust, by first building positive relationships between campers. These connections allow for campers to feel safe to discuss topics, reflect on their goals and recognize others’ achievements. They know that their voice is being heard; their ideas listened to.
- Campers become facilitators of change in their own lives. We create responsibility in youth by guiding them to self-monitor around expectations, rather than rules. These skills prepare our campers to confidently conduct themselves in a courteous, respectful and responsible manner not only at camp, but also at home and at school.
We hope to see your camper this summer, and if you have any questions, please don't hestitate to contact us at any time to learn more about our program.
