What do you think makes Gallagher special? How is it different than other camps?
Gallagher gives the campers lots of freedom to choose activities. Everyone is hilarious and fun-loving. Staff is so welcoming and always down for anything. The community is very family-like. I’ve made lasting and deep friendships at Camp Gallagher.
Was Camp Gallagher different than you expected?
Yes, it completely exceeded my expectations of a basic summer camp and I had more fun than I ever thought was possible in 9 days.
Finish this thought: "Camp Gallagher is..."
…so important to me and has helped me grow as an individual and find confidence in myself. I’m a different person after having attended camp. It’s always the highlight of my summer.
Tell us about a camp experience that sticks out as particularly memorable.
My cabin and I floated down a little stream on Anderson Island with our life jackets while holding onto each other’s feet like a train. We were laughing so hard because of how ridiculous we thought we looked.
My cabin and I painted the bridge in front of the Duckabush lodge in bright colors and we included our handprints as well as many of our inside jokes.
