Camp Boggy Creek is amazing. Kids from all over Florida go, and get to experience what the best a camp can be. Well trained volunteers help families and campers connect in the best ways. You think they are all about play until you see them respond to a medical need, no fuss, no panic, as if they do what we parents do every day. Think of the best case scenario for a camp, and that's what campers get at CBC. We are excited to say that yes, hope grows there.

Boggy Creek has become a special place in my heart! I worked on the kitchen staff in the summers of '06, '07, and '09 and had a blast every year. I didn't interact with the kids often, but I still got to see their happy faces and felt the love emanating all over camp. Some campers even had the heart to come back and help little old me with the dishes; how amazing is that?!?! Boggy Creek is hands down the 'best place on earth' and I definitely 'believe in the journey!!!' :-D

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

hands down superb and I'm still friends with a lot of them.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

wow, the implications of that statement would blow everyone's minds away!!

Boggy Creek is the most wonder-filled experience I have ever had in my life! I have been lucky to be able to volunteer there three times and find their compassion and experience for the children an experience I wish all of you could share. The allow children with life-threatening illnesses and their famolies to come experience CAMP at no cost.There are full medical supports on the property and the kids get to camp just like "normal" kids and forget about thier illnesses while there.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the love and happiness it brought to the children & their families and also to all the volunteers & staff.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Ways to make it better...

many many more children & their families could come to the Camp AND many many more people can volunteer and feel the pure love that emanates at Boggy Creek!!!!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

One thing I'd also say is that...
