Camp Story Board
Return to Camp Story Board
As an only child, with non-outdoorsy parents, camp opened
up a whole new world to me. I started attending Camp
Horizons at age 8, and was a camper, CIT and counselor
for 14 years. I came to work at Horizons right out of
college, and have been here ever since as Registrar,
Associate Director and now Director of Administration.
My husband, Kenny, is the Facility Manager (I brought
him to camp in college), and we have two children who
are growing up at camp. I will celebrate 23 years at
Camp Horizons this summer!
Growing up, camp helped me
grow in self-confidence and independence, provided me
with deep and lasting friendships with people from all
over the world, gave me instant "sisters" that I always
wanted, had genuine counselors who really cared about
me, gave me a chance to be silly and not worry what others
thought about me, and was full of endless new and fun
activities. Some of my favorite memories are things we
still do today at Camp Horizons: "Home in the Woods"
campouts, outdoor cooking, campfires with s'mores, horseback
riding, archery, wagon rides, outdoor adventure activities,
swimming, skits and Talent Shows, silly games, and lots
of singing. I'm one of those who got "camp-sick" during
the school year, and eagerly tore a page off of my Camp
Countdown calendar each day. I'm very happy to be raising
my family at my childhood camp. I'm looking forward to
the time, in a few short years, when my kids will attend
Camp Horizons with the children of my old camp friends!
