I started working at Lions Camp Tatiyee in the kitchen when I was 15. When I thought of working at a camp, of course it sounded like fun but I had NO idea how much the people who attended the camp and the staff I would work with would impact my life. After serving in positions as counselor and a leadership position for five years, I continue to return to the camp to volunteer to see the returning campers enjoy the best week out of the year. This is a place for individuals with disabilities to try new things, be independent, begin/maintain friendships and experience life in a safe and loving environment. My early years at camp confirmed my career path of working with people with disabilities and I am now a special education teacher. I thank God for Camp Tatiyee and for all the people it brings happiness to.
