BILL CHAPMAN

Our History

In 1993, while Bill was in software sales, he began taking kids on camping trips to his dad’s property. He quickly began to see the lives of kids changed and impacted in incredible ways through outdoor adventure. Through those early trips, Bill and Betsy caught a vision that would change their lives forever; thus Camp Highland was born! Now, Bill’s vision and dedication of investing full-time in building the Kingdom through outdoor ministry is continuously molding camp into a vibrant place to grow.
