Summers offer a wonderful opportunity to step beyond the familiar daily routine. Time spent away from home should be an opportunity to expand one’s horizons, learn new and exciting skills and make long lasting friendships. Under the guidance of caring and qualified leaders, campers are involved in activities that require their participation both physically and mentally.
Scaling a bold rock face, saddling a horse for the first time or sampling a dish made of food you helped harvest in our gardens requires an open mind and willingness to try new things. Camp Hidden Meadows is about creating a new way of looking at yourself and your relationship to the world.
In a sense we are a retreat for children, a place free from worldly distractions, a place where young people’s needs come first and one learns the importance of balancing personal interest with those of the community. Our goal is that each camper returns home feeling great about their accomplishments and with a deepened sense of responsibility for oneself, others and the environment.
Savoring a freshly picked carrot from our gardens or taking in the view from the high meadows on a mountain board run are long remembered. It is here where the fundamental joy of being a kid is all the excitement that is needed.
