"Camp Ma-He-Tu is very special in my heart. The people at Ma-He-Tu are more than friends, we are a family that live with each other for two weeks or even more. At camp, we help people come out of their comfort zone... I enjoy going to camp every year to see my second family" -15 years old, New York

"I can't even find the words to express how positive their experiences at camp have been, or list the ways these experiences have affected my daughters and my granddaughter.

Thank you! - Mom of staff member, grandmother of 10 year old camper, New York
