Director's Message


Christina Bossart, Camp Director

Hello and welcome to Hidden Bay,

I am so excited to be headed into Hidden Bay's 20th summer and my 5th 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. 

Christina - aka. Stitch

What Campers Say...

I am doing great, and mom you were right I actually love it here. I think it is amazing what they do. I am sure this camp is changing me. My outlook on life is changing.

What Parents Say...

In my opinion, there is no tonic more potent than going to a camp in the "real" country, where they learn new skills, face new challenges, make new friends, meet new goals, and take responsibility for themselves and their actions. Our kids love it, and go back year after year, often progressing from junior campers to leaders.
