- April 2017 Newsletter -

We are busier than ever this spring with fundraisers to attend, camp activities to plan, monthly meet-ups, and much more. It takes everyone of us putting in the time to make Horizon what it is today.
There are plenty of opportunities in this newsletter to inspire you to spring into action and get more involved. It can be as simple as sharing one of our social media posts, inviting a friend to join you for a night out at Gong Karaoke, or asking your employer to be a sponsor for our Golf Outing.

Male Volunteers Needed
107 may be the number of days until camp, but our true magic number as we plan for camp is the number of male volunteers that we still need. As of today, we still need over 25 male volunteers. We can only accept campers if we have a volunteer for them. If you are able to give a week of your summer to volunteer, please apply today. Be a part of making the magic happen this July!  
Horizon Highlight: Rachel Brown
Rachel first came to camp in 2007 after her neighbor asked her to volunteer with her daughter. She didn't know what to expect that first year, but ended up having a great experience. "Fortunately, I was paired with Ernestine and she walked me through everything I needed to know. I fell in love with the community and
the rest is history."
Rachel's favorite part of camp is the sense of family. She loves that everyone is always so happy to see you and that there is rarely any drama. "There is so much love found at camp and everyone who joins feels welcome."
Rachel describes herself as fun, outgoing, a wildcard, empathetic, and loyal. She has five siblings, two nieces, and one nephew. Her hobbies include knitting, hiking, gardening, and making art projects with her nieces. Rachel just graduated from nursing school and is looking forward to being a nurse at camp this year.
