What staff Say!

2018 Overnight Day Trip Lead​

After weeks spent at this place, it is so much easier to leave your old self behind and step into the life that Christ has called us to. Highland has a special place in my heart because of the way the staff so intentionally aligns their hearts with the heart of Jesus!!

2018 Overnight Counselor

Camp, for me, is a representation of a near perfect community of like-minded Jesus-loving people! It was so easy to build relationships because the number one thing on everyone’s minds is serving the Lord. When you get a group that all has the same goal in mind and are humble in their approach, community is founded just like that! Top that off with the fact that nearly everyone is just straight up goofy, everything we do is so fun!

During Week 5 of camp, all of the LITs will get to participate in a Highland Beyond Week (backpacking, rafting, hiking, climbing).
