Taking the campers out on the lake, doing things they'd never usually have the opportunity or support to do, was the greatest feeling. Seeing them feel like they can do anything was the best!

Spending four summers working at an under-served summer camp has made me grateful in many ways and taught me the importance of creating opportunities for all children.

Lifeguard training taught me so much and really pushed me out of my comfort zone. The difference between when I started camp and left camp was unimaginable and I am so grateful for the experience.
