The first time I came to Winter Camp was also my first time coming to Crystal Lake Camp. I only knew one person
who was going to be there, and he invited me a few days before it started. Even though there was a blizzard blowing the night I drove out, even though I had zero affiliations with this camp, even though I actually had other plans for
New Years, I felt like it was the right choice to come to Winter Camp at CLC.
I was right! From that event my entire life switched gears. Choosing to go to Winter Camp led me down a path that allowed me to meet so many loving and courageous
people. It literally expanded my friendship circle by hundreds! Not to mention I got to play with super cute dogs, dance and watch fireworks explode on a frozen lake and cross country ski for the first time through the trails that littered the property. After that weekend I spent 3 summers at CLC – and spent the majority of the year between summers helping out with off-season groups and keeping camp running too!
Since then I savor the memories of my time spent at CLC, be it winter, summer or all the time in between. Spending just an hour on that beautiful mountain, let alone a weekend, is enough to rejuvenate my mind, body and spirit! I’m so grateful I chose to go to Winter Camp at CLC!
