NAME: Ron Todd
CAMP: Double H Ranch

Camp Counselor Spotlight

What surprised me most about camp was… how supportive the campers were of each other. Whenever one of them needed help, they would all rally behind that person.

The most memorable moment was…  when one of our non-verbal campers who had mobility restrictions completed the high wire on the ropes course. I was blown away by his bravery and courage!

Best camp song: Mama Gooney Bird

My week in a hashtag: #HealthandHappiness

NAME: Steph Keller
CAMP: Flying Horse Farms

 

Camp Counselor Spotlight

What surprised me most about camp was… how everyone was able to be their true, authentic self. After spending less than a week with the campers and fellow volunteers and staff, everyone was able to bear their soul and truly connect with one another. It was incredible!

Favorite camp food: Taco Tuesday–and my cereal concoction (Frosted Flakes + Lucky Charms)

Best camp song: The Fanny Pack Song

My week in a hashtag: #YouAreEnough

NAME: Evan Lawson
CAMP: Flying Horse Farms

Camp Counselor Spotlight

What surprised me most about camp was… cabin chats at night with the kids. It was incredible after all the craziness all day–that moment at night when things settled down, the kids really opened up and shared some very personal and inspiring stories. Those chats will stay with me forever.

Favorite camp activity: The Color Olympics. The amount of joy each kid got by rubbing handfuls of paint through my hair and all over my face was shocking.

Favorite camp food: Who doesn’t love taco night?

NAME: Amy Gibson
CAMP: Victory Junction

Camp Counselor Spotlight

What surprised me most about camp was… how little the week was about illness. Camp is a place that allows kids to forget their illness for a little while and do normal kid stuff, like pie their counselor in the face and have a dance party after every breakfast.

Favorite camp activity: Watching our campers conquer the 55-foot climbing tower was really inspiring. Most said they wouldn’t be climbing or would only go half way up, but in the end most of them made it to the top or further than they thought they would.

Favorite camp meal: Pancakes! One of our campers challenged herself to eat a stack of 10, and she did!
