Testimonial from a former camper and counselor:
“[Dear Donor,] You sponsored my camp tuition for several summers during my childhood. Growing up, things were very difficult for my family. While I don't regret anything about my childhood, or our family dynamic, things were still very difficult at home and I often felt lost. Camp was the one place I felt I could escape all of the hard things I was going through at home. I learned so much about my inner-strength at camp, and I often tell people that camp saved me from some of the darkest times in my life. That said, I wanted you to know that you saved my life."
