Testimonials about High Challenge
From young people
"This camp is what I call a miracle. The camp is the only thing that worked for me."
"No one knows how good this camp was to me. Just think, professionals couldn't help, but High Challenge did."
"I felt really nervous when I was holding the rope for somebody who was trusting me not to let it go, but when it was over I felt good about myself."
"I did get a lot out of this camp because I was challenging myself most of the time to do things I had never done before."
From a police member
"Somehow, after three days, the barriers were beginning to break down. Not that we forged any lifelong friendships with them, but the police gained a greater understanding of lives and attitudes of street kids and the kids themselves went away with a whole new understanding of police and the jobs we do."
From teachers, supervisors and parents
"The skills were developed in different ways, to differing degrees and for different students, there was some development in all of them."
"I believe I owe (police) my son's life as he was sincerely depressed and suicidal before going to the camp - he now has a future."
