Thank you to everyone who submitted their awesome design ideas for the Summer 2022 T-Shirt Contest. Below are the top two designs that will be printed on shirts. Read on to learn who the artists are and how the designs will be used this summer.

The design on the left was submitted anonymously by year-round staff member, Dianna Hopkins. This design had the highest votes and clearly defined the theme for the summer of 2022. You’ll see Dianna’s work printed in one color on different colored shirts for campers, volunteers, and healthcare volunteer shirts.

The design on the right was submitted by Sophia Zaldivar. This design had the second highest number of votes and we felt it was such a great design it needed to be showcased year-round! You’ll find Sophia’s Shirt in the Camp Store so get it while you can!

Spotlight on

Kylie Matthews started volunteering at CAMP in the summer of 2021 and has continued throughout the school year programs. Originally, she signed up because her mother also volunteered at CAMP when she was a teenager. “It makes me feel like I’m home. CAMP is a place where everyone is welcome and can be who they want to be. I love the feeling of letting these kids have the best week of their lives.” Kylie will be returning to CAMP this summer as a member of the lead staff team! Kylie’s favorite activity is messy night because “throwing shaving cream, water, and paint at each other is always fun and I also love seeing the joy on campers faces, and that always makes my week.” Thank you, Kylie, for your amazing commitment to CAMP!

He has served in many roles: counselor, instructor, head instructor for target sports and outdoor cooking, and program coordinator. Michael holds a bachelors and master’s degree from Texas A&M University. He believes in CAMP’s mission and is beyond excited to serve CAMP’s community year-round!
