Important Info

Counselors Talk about HVC

...It was great to see the children develop and grow into themselves over time. The love and compassion make such a difference.
- HVC Counselor

Counselor and campers

...I liked HVC's inclusive atmosphere... I was proud of the way my cabin groups responded to others who had unconventional family setups or were from different cultures. They could have taught society a thing or two!
- HVC Counselor

...Camp has helped me grow into who I am today... You gave me the chance to learn respect and responsibility while working with both children and my peers, and of course all in this beautiful environment.
