amp Hayward taught me from a young age the power of
making connections with all sorts of people, and just how much I
could learn from those around me ... I have found that when you keep an open mind, many doors are opened to new and exciting opportunities, and the extent of my personal knowledge and growth is quite possibly endless.â€?
KATIE RUP CEO Rup Designs / Camp Burgess & Hayward Friends & Alumni Council Member
here’s that moment every summer when my mom drives
me off the main road and I go onto that dirt road into Camp and I breathe and I know that I have arrived.”

By investing in and strengthening our facilities, we are embracing the opportunity to continue shaping lives for good; we are ensuring Camp Burgess & Hayward will be poised to broaden the reach of its mission for generations to come.
hy does camp stay with kids their entire lifetime? Because
it is a place that they feel like they belong to.â€?
