Camp sustains my grandchildren through the winter months somehow. Especially my grandson, who has the hardest time with life in the outside world."

"Thank you for making summer camp real! You help kids from all over the world, like me!"
This is my first summer and it is amazing! I am Spanish and am living the American summer. I made many friends and also I am improving my English. Thank you!
"I just wanted to send a long overdue note to say thank you for saving my daughters this summer. They both came back completely in love with the experience, with renewed confidence and zeal. I'm so very grateful."

"Camp is my family. Camp has allowed me to be myself and not hold anything back with the fear of being judged. I will always love this community and am more than happy to pay it forward to help give the opportunity to a child who, like me, could not afford the experience."
