Review for Camp Horizon Inc, Decatur, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been part of the Camp Horizon family since 2001, as a summer camp counselor, a former board member, as well as I currently serve on their staff for summer camp. For over 13 years I have had the privilege to be a part of this amazing organization that literally heals and repairs the lives of children that have been abused and/or neglected from the metro Atlanta area. This organization gives each child unconditional love and positive encouragement, as well as teaches them how to get through the ups and downs of life. It is not just a week at summer camp that is provided, but a continual support system that lasts through their adolescence through weekend outings and other events. As teenagers our campers are taught many life skills to prepare them for adulthood, and most importantly they are taught the three "R`s", respect, responsibility, and resilience. I have witnessed children overcome major adversity that most adults cannot comprehend, much less overcome themselves, largely in part to this loving and supportive program that has changed lives for almost 30 years.
After all this time with the Camp Horizon family, I continue to be amazed at all they provide for these children and young adults with such minimum resources. I encourage anyone who reads this to consider supporting this great organization either financially or through volunteering your time.
