    I worked at the camp for two summers (79 and 80, I think) If anyone can remember any names from those two years please post them.

    John Hickman was a friend of mine from there.

    My memory is fading but the Google map still shows the girls’ dorm and the snake bar (probably someones house by now). I think I will visit. Dave Heyns

    I remember being at Highland Lake Bible Conference for three summers—they were the best summers of my life!

    I remember hanging around in Lakeview and going to the Snack Shop. Living in the Barn and singing in the Choir. Those were the days!
