Enchanted Hills Camp Virtual Winter Concert
For the fourth year in a row, alumni staff of Enchanted Hills Camp (EHC) wish to show their appreciation for the LightHouse community by hosting a free virtual EHC Alumni holiday concert. These are performers who have served as program staff over the years and will join current LightHouse and EHC staffers to celebrate the spirit of EHC past, present, and future.
This year’s performers are Hanna Clemenson, Christina Daniels, Derek Dittmar, Rachael Grider, Mariana Sandoval and Masceo Williams.
Camp Director, Tony Fletcher says, “When we enter the cold and dark days of late fall and prepare for winter, many of the alumni of EHC truly look forward to any opportunities for us to gather and celebrate one of our favorite locations on earth. One of the special gatherings is the Virtual Holiday Concert. All the performers have deep connections to EHC as staff members, and for many, as former campers. This is a show built around gratitude. This year we focus on saying thank you to the many generous donors that supported Giving Tuesday for the LightHouse’s Little Learners Program that uses Enchanted Hills for a family camp weekend.
“We hope listeners will enjoy not only the music, but also the chance to hear and see the performers that have been their counselors and area leaders at EHC over the years.”
What: EHC Virtual Alumni Holiday Concert
When: Thursday, December 7, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
