WHAT CAMPERS ENJOY ABOUT STRENGTH FOR THE JOURNEY

~sweet time with old and new friends and with the moon and trees ~ the love we share without borders ~ the kindness and peace I felt from the experiences here will live with me forever! ~ an opportunity to serve a larger community, to be in nature away from normal routine ~ telling my life story and getting to know new campers ~ all the smiling faces behind the masks ~ how much the camp means to me ~ it brings love and strength to an otherwise difficult disease
