“There aren’t very many spaces in the world for children to freely express themselves without being asked to also ‘fit in’. WindRiders is filled with those spaces of freedom where children are embraced when they step beyond the limits of who they think they are; a new door of opportunity opens and they share their creativity, gifts, and talents without holding anything back. It is an honor to witness this year after year.” – NJ

““Don’t hide yourself in regret. Just love yourself and you’re set. I’m on the right track, baby I was Born This Way.” One of my favorite Lady Gaga quotes and what I intend to be a space for at the WindRiders camps – self-love and acceptance. It lights me up to be a part of WindRiders where kids can really experience all of who they are while learning about leadership and having fun.” – DH
