The Ripple Effect: The Story of Leadership in Action

Dear Friends and Supporters,

As we conclude our 68th season of Summer Camp, we want to thank you for your deep investment in this summer's work with over 1100 children and young adults, providing them with opportunities to develop a greater understanding and appreciation of themselves, the natural world and of one another.

It is an honor to stand among such thoughtful, conscientous friends who are commited and invested in the multicultural community building that takes place at Hidden Villa's Summer Camp. The bridges that are built during Summer Camp between our campers and the unknown--be it a peer from a different background, the wilderness, or a goat and chicken-- really do set the groundwork for a world where everyone has a place at the table and where leaders not only speak for the people, but also the trees, rivers, streams and banana slugs!

So that you can really feel, understand and experience the impact of your investment, we have included a link to our most recent newsletter, which speaks to the deep impact of Summer Camp on campers who decided to give back and become Summer Camp staff. In addition, you can read about the Youth Development work Hidden Villa engages in during the school year, which strengthens the connections we build during Summer Camp.

Congratulations on these inspiring accomplishments that we have worked towards together! Happy reading!

Warm Regards,

Tenaya Schnare
