5:00 pm: Enchanted Hills Camp Alumni Holiday Concert (online)

For the third year in a row friends and supporters of Enchanted Hills Camp wish to show their appreciation for the LightHouse community by hosting a free virtual EHC Alumni holiday concert. Musicians who have attended camp sessions, music camp or been a camp counselor or volunteer will join LightHouse and EHC staffers to celebrate the spirit of EHC past, present and future.

Camp Director Tony Fletcher says, “Our virtual concert has become a holiday tradition for the community. These concerts are important for people who want to share their work and it’s the musicians’ way of saying thank you for supporting Enchanted Hills Camp by attending, donating, volunteering or working at EHC thru the years.

Says former camper and staff member Rachel Grider, about EHC, “I worked as a counselor during the summer of 2013. It was an unforgettable experience to work with so many fantastic colleagues and campers. I saw firsthand the difference camp made in the lives of campers as they participated in activities and formed friendships. It is a pleasure for me to help camp by performing in this concert.”

Other featured EHC alumni performers include Christina Daniels, Derek Dittmar, Ellie Kneer, Hannah Clemenson, Jackie Nguyen, Marina Sandoval, Masceo Williams and Shane Dittmar,
