Our Impact

"Sometimes, you just want to cut loose and be yourself. Be that person without a care, who just goes for it. I like to think that Camp lets you be that person. Our campers come to Camp and they become rock stars and movie directors; Super athletes and dancing queens; Inspiring artists and the life of the party.

Watching your camper go from lighting up the stage at the talent show to winning all the prizes at the carnival, you can’t help but smile because you know everyone is having the time of their life. And you think, maybe we could all use a little more of this.

It’s not that hard really. Be a little more yourself. Have a little more fun. And brighten someone else’s day along the way."

— Alex Nelson, 13 year Camp Volunteer
