Review for Experience Camps, Westport, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Former camper who’s dad died when I was 3. Growing up I had a lot of behavioral problems and didn’t know anyone else who’s had someone in their family die who was my age. I felt left out and different from other kids because of it. Then when I was in 5th grade I found out about experience camps from my guidance counselor and decided to give it a try. By the time I got to camp I already loved it and formed bonds with all the other kids I drove up with and cried when it was time to go because I didn’t want to leave. That was the very first year of the camp in 2009 and I have been coming back ever since as a camper and for the past 4 summers have been a volunteer and I plan to keep coming back every summer because this organization and the people who volunteer their time have changed my life for the better, and I don’t know where I’d be with out this organization because I don’t have the problems I had going into my first few years of camp. This place has helped me mature and become the person I am today. And if I could I would rate this organization over a 5, this is a place I absolutely love and something I look forward to every year!
