Camper Stories


If you were to ask me why I keep coming back to camp, I couldn’t answer you. To me the best answer is a speechless one. Camp is a like a separate world inside the one we all live in. A world where each and every one of us can finally feel normal and understood. All limitations and expectations are out the door. We are not judged, looked down upon or ignored by the way we look or our abilities or lack thereof. We are simply accepted, loved and cherished for who we are. If I was forced to answer in just a few words it would be simply this: I come here for the people, the environment, the friendships, the great time and mostly for what this camp has taught me about hope, courage and persistence and I want to pass that on to the younger survivors.
