Review for Lions Camp Tatiyee Inc, Mesa, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I went to Camp Tatiyee as a camper from 1988 until 1998. I became staff and worked there as a counselor in 1999 and 2001. In 2008 and 2012, I was a volunteer for the deaf week. The place is just an amazing one to be as both a camper and staff. When I was a kid, I would spend all year looking forward to the week deaf children went there. I have made so many friends over the years there. The day camp was over and we all had to go home was the worst. We had to say bye to friends, the staff, and the camp itself. The place itself is so full of life that it is alive itself. We can see the trees get bigger over the years and the place evolving to accommodate every camper. Pam, the director, is an amazing person with the biggest heart and the most patience I have ever seen. Not even the most difficult camper (me) could break her. I really wish I could have gone this past summer but due to a stupid decision I made, I could not, which broke my heart. I hope I will be able to volunteer next summer and contribute to the camp for all the experience I had there as a kid and as an adult. This camp needs all the donations it can get so that it can touch more hearts and inspire the uninspired.

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

Add deaf adult week! ;-)
