What Parents Are Saying

"My son seemed completely at peace, having shrugged off the stresses of his young years and fully embraced the spirit of being in the beautiful mountains. He pushed his limits, tried mountain boarding and did the Polar Bear Plunge every day for two weeks. We were so proud of him."
"The boys had such a good time. I loved 'debriefing' them on the drive on Saturday while all of the details were fresh on their minds. They were so excited. We had to take turns talking."
"Victoria is in love with your camp, as was her sister 10 years ago. Thank you for doing a great job!"
"Thanks for another great 2 weeks at camp. The boys had a blast and raved about the chef! Hands down the food was great! They both love coming and look forward to next summer!"
"My kids had a great time. My son, Owen, about whom I worried most, was all jazzed up about camp when he came home. They'd never been to sleep-away camp. They'll be back next year."
"Maggie truly loves CHM; it has been a positive thing. Great environment with no electronics! She has already said she wants to go to CHM until she hits the max age. You run an awesome camp."
"My daughter Valerie had a great year at camp this year - thanks again for giving her such an amazing environment to grow and develop in!"
"Counselors Cameron and Taylor were excellent role models for him, but he also spoke highly of everyone else, Fraser, Michael, Maria, etc. He truly felt like a part of the group, and we are so thankful that the brief window of time he gets with you guys makes him a better person, a better brother, and a better friend."
"Zach who is always very risk-adverse, actually tried the zip line. He said he loved it, and I could tell he was feeling very proud and accomplished. When I dropped him off on Sunday with his little group in his cabin I could just tell it was going to be a perfect and nurturing experience for him. He had two other little Acorns with him and they were fast friends immediately!"
"Your camp definitely has that magic that all parents seek for their kids - a peaceful, beautiful, sanctuary for youth, for people from any background to feel like part of a special community. You did an amazing job with our son, and we are so grateful."
"I know I've said it before, but I can't say it enough: Camp Hidden Meadows is THE BEST!!!"
"We love Camp Hidden Meadows…The boys have such happy memories, and Henry literally talks to his camp friends almost every day!!"
"Bill was enamored with the pool. He told me he was really surprised that it was so cold outside but the pool was so warm. He was thrilled to try his hand at fly fishing and that they saw a beaver in the wild while they were out there. And he raved (with details) about the food!"
"Thanks! He had a great time - so much so that his first comment to me was 'Sorry I didn't write, but I wasn't homesick. I was having too much fun!'"
"For more reasons than we can count, Camp Hidden Meadows is the best. Thank you!"
"I was very impressed with the quality and organization of the check-in process: very easy and very friendly staff. The facility and grounds are gorgeous. I know that Emma is in good hands and will have a blast!"
