“Camp is the happiest place on Earth, obviously…but why? Why does anyone who has worked at camp feel like it is the best place to be?
The answer: Because we, as humans, spend our whole lives looking for a place to be the truest form of ourselves that we can be, camp allows us to do that. It is the one place that we can feel safe in our most pure skin. The people we meet at camp are the people that show us who we are. They don’t tell us what to be, but they allow us to show our true selves. Rather than deciding who we are, they give us the opportunity to show them who we are.
Camp is the only place I have been that has given me the freedom to be the person I want to be.
This is why I go back, and until I feel free to be myself in any setting, I will continue going to camp to find my center.”
We couldn’t have said it any better.
