Just a bunch of Happy Campers

 

“This has literally been the best weekend away that I have ever had. Whether you want to relax with crafts or go on crazy adventures, there is something for everyone to do at all times. I felt stripped down to my real self instantly, and any anxiety I had about not knowing people on the trip vanished within moments of being at camp. I feel truly lucky to have found such an amazing group of people with the same goal of letting go and having fun! Such a combination of intellectual, funny, deep, laid back and creative people that I will never forget. Camp No Counselors is something special that we all share and I can’t wait for summer camp next year!”

“This was my first time to Camp and I literally didn’t know a soul upon arrival. Within an hour, my friend count had grown by 6 and by dinner on the first night, by 30. By the end of the weekend, my stomach was sore from laughter and I gave 67 heart-felt hugs to people I will most certainly see again (soon). The curation of people, venue, activities, etc, was all spot on and I’d recommend Camp No Counselors to any like-minded people that I know.”

“I’m not much of an athlete. I’m not much of an artist. I’m not much for competition. Screaming makes me uncomfortable. Strangers make me put up my guard – a skill honed by walking the streets of New York City day in and day out.

But when the doors of the bus opened and the all encompassing beauty of the natural world flooded through my veins, I was transformed. I was an athlete, an artist, a competitor, a screamer, an open book to welcome in strangers to make them my peers and friends. Camp scratched an itch I didn’t even know I had. It awoken a sleeping giant – it brought back the childlike wonder that I believe is dormant in all of us and is silently waiting to be reborn.

Thank you CNC for taking me away from myself for a moment. Making me part of a greater whole. Thank you for resurfacing the majestic innocence of youth and slapping it in our face so we couldn’t ignore it even if we wanted to. You momentarily healed the minds of ambitious adults who tend to forget what freedom can and should feel like. Time stood still and we were all engulfed by the good vibes. You’ve ignited a spark that I’ll carry with me…until next year ;)”

“Despite being sore in places I didn’t even know I had, I woke up incredibly aware of how blessed I am. I knew Camp would be amazing, but I never imagined that it could be as incredible as it was. I just wanted to send a big fat THANK YOU for one of the most amazing weekends of our lives. I am so grateful for the memories made, and the friendships that I hope will continue for a very long time.

Whoever said Disney was the happiest place on earth never attended CNC.

“The best part of CNC is the people. The group was packed with talented, bad asses from many different industries. But I didn’t even realize it until after we got home.There’s something to be said for an experience that allows people to bond on a deeper level than playing the name game and trading business cards. I loved that I left the weekend with 100 new friends, even if I had no idea what they did or where they lived.”

“At my first CNC, I broke my finger and still had the time of my life. I met friends who are now some of my closest. I learned, I played, I soaked it all in and didn’t stress over anything the entire weekend. I listed to magical music at a morning dance party and felt shivers down my spine. Every detail of that camp was put together perfectly so that they’re invisible and you can focus entirely on the people and the fun. You’ll forget about your phone and your job and you’ll actually connect with people. Do it.”

I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I signed up to go to Camp No Counselors. But the weekend that I had is one I will remember forever. I never thought I would make so many new friends and enjoy so many awesome activities. Who says camp is for kids? This was a weekend to disconnect from work and connect with new amazing people. So glad I went. I am a camper for life.”
