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 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.

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.
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.
