Summer Camp Stories & Experiences
The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp changed my life the second I walked onto Camp in 2011. I cried the day before I came to Camp for the first time because I thought it would be the worst week of my life and that it would make me feel worse than I already did. I cried the day I left as a camper for the last time because Camp made me realize that I was not a victim, I am not an embarrassment, and I should never feel anything but happy. There’s no other place in the world where I can sing at the top of my lungs, jump off a tower knowing that nothing would ever happen to me, feel love the second I entered, and most importantly, not be made into an awkward embarrassment because I had leukemia.

It’s unbelievable how much we all miss it and especially each other. The bonds we’ve created, they will truly be everlasting. THANK GOD FOR A PLACE LIKE CAMP! And of course, Paul too & everybody else that has made such a place possible. Honest! When I wake up with ‘Stars in the Sky’ stuck in my head, I know it’s going to be a good day – how could it not?!

I have been to many places in the world and had many good times but I’ve never been to a place this magical and had so many good times just sitting around.
