Camper Testimonials:
"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, 3 years at Long Lake

"I've been coming to this camp for three weeks for almost half of my life, and whatever the next years have in store, I know that because I came to this camp, I am a stronger, brighter, better person than I ever was".
- Alyssa, 7 years at Long Lake

"When I came my first time 3 years ago, to LLC, I almost didn't speak a word of English. I quickly realized that thanks to the welcoming love of Marc and Susan, Geoff and Carolyn, all the other staff and the wonderful campers, there really was no need to be scared at all. Although I live across the ocean, I made some of my best friends here in LLC".
- Beni, 4 years at Long Lake
