Welcome to Your Volunteer News!
Welcome to our first volunteer newsletter! In each issue of our newsletter you will get a quick update about camp news, what is happening at Hidden Paradise, as well as upcoming volunteer opportunities and CRG events. Each month you will hear from a returning volunteer and a first-year volunteer, and we'll share some tips or news from the ACA. This issue also includes memories about Heather Feely, a friend gone much too soon but who will always be remembered.
Enjoy your first volunteer newsletter! And keep shining!

Heather, you will always be in our hearts.
