From the minute I stepped off the bus at Camp Okizu I knew it was an amazing place. Being a 17 year old camper I was quite hesitant to attend in the first place, but as I walked through the funnel of cheering counselors I knew I was in a very special place. I was hooked after my first week. Once I turned 18 I applied to be a volunteer counselor, I signed up to work for 3 weeks and ended up staying for 4. The environment that Okizu creates is beyond amazing. Whether you are a camper or a counselor you know that you are supported in anything that you do. Okizu has made me into the person I am today, some of my greatest friends and mentors are my fellow volunteers at camp. I count down the days until I can be back at Okizu next summer.
