“‘Jackson 5 Christmas Album’ from 1970 has zero skips. It’s a classic!” – Dexter “Pikapoo!” Carter, Outback Camp Director

“‘Right now ‘Birth of a King’ by Tommee Profitt is my go-to Christmas album. It has probably the best version of “O Holy Night” that you’ll ever hear.” – Rob “Change Up” Harris, CPA, Director of Accounting

“We have ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ Album on repeat in the background at our house as soon as it’s November 1st every year!” – Justin “Pig Deal” Halferty, Senior Director of Camper Support

“I won’t lie: Justin Bieber’s ‘Under the Mistletoe (Deluxe Edition)’ is my favorite. 2011 Justin WENT OFF in making this album.” – Kathryn “Chief” McDaniel, Executive Assistant

“My favorite Christmas album is ‘A Christmas Festival!’ It’s the most beautiful collection of holiday favorites played by the Boston Pops Orchestra. Spin it next to a crackling fire with a steaming cup of hot chocolate in hand for maximum Christmas cheer!” – Valerie “Ouch Potato” Morby, Social Media and Copy Manager

 “‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ by the Vince Guaraldi Trio is unbeatable. So peaceful. So Christmas. Timeless bops!” – Conor “Flowstopper” Barry, Ridge Camp Director

“I am a big fan of Josh Garrels, and I really like his Christmas album ‘The Light Came Down.’ It is beautiful music with rich lyrics. He has a few traditional songs with his own musical style as well as some originals. More of an easy-listening background album rather than a sing-along album.” – Daniel “Gigabite” David, Business Analyst 

“Our favorite Christmas album is ‘When My Heart Find Christmas’ by Harry Connick, Jr. It is so beautiful!” – Julie “Meow Mix” and Reed “SI” Livesay, CEO 

“I love Phil Wickham’s Christmas album!” – Anna Kate “Skiis” Inman, Bluffs Women’s Director

“The first Amy Grant Christmas album is my favorite!” – Tim “Swanee” Alderson, Global Director of Horsemanship 

I love ‘Christmas with the Worship Initiative!’ – Sharmain “Screams” Burton, Highland Site Director 

“I always love Kelly Clarkson’s song ‘Underneath the Tree!’ from her ‘Wrapped In Red’ album.” – Chloe “Risk It” McGrath, Towers Womens Director

“‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ is always great!” – Landon Fink, Towers Men’s Director 

“My favorite Christmas album is the soundtrack to the 2018 movie ‘The Grinch!’ There are so many fun, festive, and catchy songs.” – Parker “Boomer” Shinsky, Communications Project Coordinator
