Briar Hill is a family run business started by Dale and Betsie Lynn in 1968. Through the years, they built the school and summer camp on this beautiful 10 acre location with careful thought towards making Briar Hill a special place for little people. Most everyone who comes here or works with us remarks that this is a unique place where everyone feels like family.
Betsie and Dale ran the school and camp for many years. When Dale retired from AT&T as an electrical engineer, he found his true calling as the camp director with the big red shoes and the paper airplanes and rocket launching while Betsie continued to run the Nursery School until retirement. Dale Lynn passed away on Friday, April 6th, 2012 after fighting leukemia for many months. His family was blessed to spend a lot of quality time together with him for his remaining weeks through the end. He passed peacefully with his family surrounding him. He is sorely missed.
In the summer of 2012, Dale’s oldest son, Mark Lynn, and his wife, Maiya, chose to continue the family tradition of running Briar Hill. They both have many years of experience running this family business, and are committed to continuing the tradition of making Briar Hill a special place for little people.
