During our 25th Anniversary year we took a look back at all of the amazing weeks of summer camp that we have spent together! We thank our donors and sponsors for being a big part of making our 25 summers of Horizon Camp possible. We especially would like to thank Heal Team 6 for their very generous support of Horizon. If you have not seen it already, the memories of our 25th summer have been captured in our new
Horizon Highlight: Megan Chan
Megan Chan first heard about Horizon through a presentation at Lincoln Park High School. "I decided to give it a chance because it sounded fun and I also needed community service hours." This past summer was Megan's fifth year at camp and her first year as a Team Leader.
Volunteering at 007
During the year, Megan helps out by volunteering at fundraisers. She volunteered at last year's 007 event and this year's A Wicked Affair. "Not only were both events fun, but it also felt amazing to see the guests donate to something that means so much to me and many people in my life." Megan also joined the Camp Activities Committee this year. "I'm looking forward to seeing how everything comes together for the week of camp."
Outside of Horizon, Megan works at the Trinity Hospital Emergency Department as a medical scribe. "I see a lot of crazy things, so it's never a boring day at work." She is also a huge foodie and loves traveling. In the near future, she hopes to visit New Orleans, Portland, Tokyo, Barcelona, and Mykonos.
