Volunteer Testimonials

When I Volunteer, I Am Grateful for the Entire Year

I volunteer two weeks each summer because even though now I wear the
safety goggles of an adult, inside, I still want to know the joy of playing
like an 11-year-old. The kids don’t care where you are from, what you
wear or what you do. They need something so simple: to be heard, to
be seen and to be acknowledged. Celebrating each child’s human glory
is the inevitable response to what we see and hear. All you have to do is
show up and listen, and you will forever change the life of a child as well
as your own. When I volunteer, I am grateful for the entire year, for each
day. This opportunity for such real human connection is so rare in an
increasingly disconnected world. To watch the kids explode with joy
elevates us all. Come to Camp with 100 or so other adults of
substance. Join us, be present, celebrate the children and watch what
