Check out what some of our previous campers and volunteers think of Higher Heights!

“While basketball give me an opportunity to serve God through Higher Heights, it also provided a unique experience for kids and volunteers to meet God in a recreational setting.”

Rex L.

“Higher heights has always been a place for fellow brothers and sisters in Christ to learn about both God and basketball. As a volunteer, I saw the passion that campers had to compete, and hopefully this same passion will one day be to glorify God.”

Randall L.

“My time as a volunteer at Higher Heights has given me the opportunity to become involved in a community of outgoing young individuals from different backgrounds who share the common love for the game of basketball. I loved every moment in which I was able to work with other volunteers to build our group together.”

Henry C.

“I loved Higher Heights because it brought me out of my comfort zone and allowed me to make friends who had similar interests as me. It was also nice to be part of such a welcoming community!”

Rex T.

“Higher Heights is AWESOME because you get to connect with the youth in the community using basketball and you get to connect them to Jesus.  Added bonus is when you run into them in the city/Chinatown and you get to give them a fist bump.”  

Cindy L.

“It’s a great way to connect with people while playing a sport you are passionate about in a wholesome setting.”

Aaron L.

“Higher Heights, despite having to wake up a LOT earlier than need be on a saturday in the summer time, is a blessing to volunteer for. Seeing your kids grow over the summers in physicality and mentality is such a joy, knowing that you have impacted them in some way.”

Ricky Y.

“I joined Higher Heights in 2014 and remained a camper for 2 years where I formed bonds and competed against others. Then when I came back for a third year, I was told that I was too old so I just became a referee. You don’t need to be an avid Christian or a good basketball player to have fun here. Me gusta pollo.”

Danny W.

“Volunteering for Higher Heights has been a great experience. Higher Heights has always been a fun and supportive atmosphere. I have been blessed by getting to know and grow as a team with the campers and other volunteers each year.”

Danica L.

“I’ve had the privilege of serving with Higher Heights for over a decade and it’s been great to see kids from all over NYC come and learn about how to play basketball, meet new friends and get to know who Jesus is. Every year I am encouraged by the energy and excitement in the coaches and campers as we seek to understand how important God is in our lives and to grow together as a community.”
