CAMP HORIZON INC
April 7, 2013

Camp Horizon is by far the GREATEST week of the year. The magical memories of camp remain with me throughout the year. I started volunteering as a summer camp counselor for Camp Horizon in 2008 and feel every child, counselor, and staff member I have met along the way have truly impacted my life for the better. I've had the honor of working with the same camper for the last three summers, and there isn't a day that goes by that I do think about our time together at camp. Camp Horizon gave her the opportunity to learn how to ride a bike when she was eight, swim across the pool (to earn that coveted green bracelet) when she was nine, and solve conflicts peacefully with peers when she was ten. I'm looking forward to seeing what lessons this summer will bring!

I credit Camp Horizon in guiding me toward my career path as a school social worker. And, even though I now live in Illinois, I make an concerted effort to return to Georgia every summer to see my camp family.
