Advice to new members of the Lochearn family: Lochearn is the perfect place to make new friends and try new activities, so be open to both! Each year I’ve been at camp, I’ve been lucky to become friends with plenty of campers and counselors, especially those who were in my cabin or classes. And I’ve been able to try things I’ve never done anywhere else, like waterskiing and climbing the Alpine Tower. So, don’t be afraid to get out of your comfort zone at Lochearn, because we’re all here to cheer you on!
