Save the Hidden Villa legacy

Original post made by Francie Kelley, another community, on Jul 6, 2006

I have just learned of the awful possibility of Hidden Villa's 12-day summer camp closing, and I got a pang in my stomach just at the thought of losing it. My daughter, Katie, attended the four-day camp last year and will have the joy of attending the 12-day camp this year. Little did I know it could be her only time.

You might consider looking into the almost complete lack of innovation and risk-taking by the Hidden Villa board as the big reason for Hidden Villa's troubles. It's very sad to see people so well-meaning in their attempt to keep HV "pure" that thay can't see the future forest for the trees.

There needs to be either a sea change in thinking, or a sea schange on the HV board to make HV a sustainable organization for the long term.
