I grew up going to a really cool summer camp. This camp isn't just any camp, it is a Camp Fire camp. Not only is this camp apart of the organization, it also runs with the values and passions which Camp Fire upholds. I applied to become a National Youth Advisory Cabinet member so that I could further my role in the nonprofit organization of Camp Fire. As a member of the National Youth Advisory Cabinet, I do not represent the camp or local council that I am from. I represent the voice for all Camp Fire youth throughout this country. Along with 15 other wonderful and dedicated youth, we give youth voice in many of the decisions that Camp Fire Headquarters makes, as well as representing youth at national events. Throughout the time I have been involved with Camp Fire, I have become very confident in myself as a leader. I have also found confidence in my voice, because in Camp Fire my voice matters. It is not just my voice, but every other youth's voice in this country that Camp Fire cares about. Camp Fire encourages youth to lift their voices, because they do matter. I know my opinion on Camp Fire matters, which is why I am writing this review. I am not someone who doesn't know anything about this organization, I am someone who has grown up and into Camp Fire's wide open arms. This organization is extremely inclusive, and will accept and treat others with respect and dignity. Camp Fire wants to help youth members find their spark, through this organization I have found mine.
