Steve's Camp at Horizon Farms is the brainchild of board chair Steve Kessner. The son of a cab driver from the Bronx, Steve grew up in a neighborhood with few constructive activities for kids. The highlight of each year was traveling to a bungalow colony in the Catskill Mountains, where he could escape the city and see the stars. Steve's father had the good fortune of picking up a Dartmouth alum in his taxi, who eventually enabled Steve to attend Dartmouth at age 16. Today, Steve is a successful real estate professional who is fulfilling his dream of having a summer camp in the Catskills for young people with a background similar to his own.
