We are so thankful for all of you! It would not be High Rocks without ALL of you. This place would just be a cold, wet, rock… High Rocks is the culmination of all the people who have come to put their heart here; even if just for a moment. It’s not the thousand plus acres (well maybe a little), the horses, the lake, or even all the cool activities. It’s the people that come here to enjoy it; learn; and even grow here.
It takes a village… Our parents, campers, staff, food service, excavator, recycle man, and even the health department all make it awesome! A community is made of its people, and you are all wonderful!
I have come to realize that High Rocks truly is a place to be yourself. No one fits in a pre-cut mold here. I know you may hear that all the time, but I am not using those words lightly. High Rocks truly lets you be yourself. We are very thankful for that!
What an incredible time of year…even for a camp director :)! Believe it or not, there is only about six weeks where you feel like you are working part time. I make a joke to my friends and family that I only work part time in the winter since at typical day at camp is about 15 hours and I am only working eight most days. I will say late November and December is really a low stress time of year.
Anyhow, have a fantastic Thanksgiving! We are so thankful for all of you!
From all of us here at High Rocks.
