I am part of something grander than me. The family aspect of camp is the best. The two parent home aspect of my life was missing at a crucial point in my development and because of that I had not the slightest clue of what I was supposed to be. The same can be said for many other boys. They come and many of them are forced to “grow up” at home and here at camp they can be kids. That is one of the most amazing things about camp. The fact that you are guided and directed in your maturation and growth. I learned what it means to be a real man, I learned the strength, courage and all the other things that make a man. For that, I am eternally grateful.
