Since LLYC first opened its gates in 1966, we have heard countless stories of transformation from LLYC campers and staff. Those stories continue to inspire us and remind us why we do what we do.
Recent campers and staff, it’s your turn now. We want to hear from you! Your camp stories are the star. We will use content from your submissions in helping to tell the LLYC story in print, online, and through social media.
And in true LLYC fashion, we’re making it a competition with prizes! In December, we will choose four winners—a Singing Hills camper, an Echo Valley camper, and two current (or very recent) staff. Each winner will receive a $100 Amazon gift certificate and will be featured in our upcoming newsletters and social media channels.
Every submission will be considered, and the full-time LLYC staff will vote on the winners.
