Twenty-four years ago my parents provided me with an opportunity of a lifetime. Following high school, I traveled the world with the international group Up with People. The program continues to make a difference in the lives of young people and communities all over the world.
Last year, the mission of Up with People came to life in a different way at Camp Up with People. This week we are in conversation with Camp Up with People’s camp director, Tim Lane.
If you are between the ages of 14 and 17 or have kids that age, I encourage you to check out Camp Up with People!
Enjoy the conversation.
About Camp Up with People
Camp Up with People is a non-profit performing arts summer camp that brings together students from around the world to impact and inspire the community through service and song. Through outdoor activities, service projects and staging, campers will gain a sense of social responsibility, as well as the skills and appreciation of working cooperatively as part of a diverse group. Each session will culminate with an on-stage capstone performance.
Camp Up with People is located in the heart of the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, approximately two hours from Washington D.C.

Tim has a passion for making a difference in young people’s lives, helping them to grow in confidence and realize that the best way to make a difference in your own life, is to make a difference in someone else’s life.
