Each summer I volunteer for a week as a counselor. Camp is a magical place! It helps restore a sense of normalcy to families whose lives have been turned upside down by serious illness. Quite simply, its a place where kids can come and be just that...kids. The camp staff are among the most dedicated and caring individuals I have ever met and they always find a way to help the children to have a traditional camp experience. At the end of the week the kids said things to me like "I live for this week" and "this was the best week of my life," but what the parents said was even more poignant..."I haven't seen my child smile like this in such a long time" and "you dont know how much this means to find a place that will take my child just the way they are."

The Great!

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

Seeing the smiles on the children's faces and hearing there laughter. At the end of the week the kids said things to me like "I live for this week" and "this was the best week of my life," but what the parents said was even more poignant..."I haven't seen my child smile like this in such a long time" and "you dont know how much this means to find a place that will take my child just the way they are."

Ways to make it better...

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

I would try and find a way to give more kids the Camp experience.
