Camper and Parent Testimonials

Below are some comments, thoughts and feelings from our campers and parents.

Camper Testimonials

“Saying goodbye to Long Lake is heartbreaking. I have
never loved a place so much in my entire life. My first year
coming I had no clue how much this camp would change
me as a person. I have made friendships with people all
over the entire world and somehow feel closer to them than
anyone else. Not only does this camp offer you anything you
can imagine, it has helped me grow and become the person I
will be for the rest of my life. I don’t think I can get any closer
to heaven than this place. Each summer has offered me something
new, different, and challenging and each month of the year
I count down to the three weeks I spend here at Long Lake”.
Libby.H. 3 years at Long Lake.


“At Long Lake, I have been a rock star, a magician, a
beauty pageant host, a sailor, a superhero, dancer, and 20
minutes ago, a cook. I have experienced things in 3 weeks I
never thought I would have experienced during my whole
life. Thanks to what I consider a hugely supportive family.”
Paul.D. 3 years at Long Lake.


“When I was twelve, my parents were searching on the
internet for an arts camp when they stumbled upon Long Lake
Camp for the Arts. That’s when fate stepped in. That summer,
after camp was over, I slid into my car and said to my parents,
“I’m coming back. No question.” The reason behind this change
of heart? The reason is that Long Lake is the closest to a home
away from home on Earth”.
Rebecca. B. 4 years at Long Lake.
