Camp friendships are something truly special. Many of our alumni, as adults, are still best friends with their camp friends, and many first time campers are surprised at what strong friendships they make over the course of four weeks. We've thought quite a bit about why that is, and we think it's because at Four Winds, we have a culture that encourages people to express their true selves. When you're being your true self, and people like you for it, the friendships that happen are truly wonderful. Many of our campers and alumni will recall having some of the most honest and amazing conversations in one of the beautiful corners of Four Winds, and the friendships that emerge from those moments are just the best.
