What People Say

"HVC influenced my life greatly. I started everything there. I had my first photography class there, and I have continued with Photography through all my schooling and into my professional life (now I am working in the film and video industry)."
- Former HVC Camper

"I was particularly thrilled when she showed me the negatives from her photography workshop--I had braced myself for digital cameras and some computer chop shop. She said, "But Mom, of course we used film--there's no technology at camp." Better sounding words are hard to find these days. What a reaffirmation of everything I knew about your camp!"
