-from a camp director

“He told me how much he enjoyed camp and how it changed his life. He went on to tell me that he had a different attitude.   Camp was the first place in his life that everything seemed fair to him in terms of how he was treated.  He especially loved the food and couldn’t believe he could eat as much as he wanted.”
