I am excited to go to camp this year! i love the chicken fajitas and the pool and the YEAH BOAT chant and the dress up time and their dog Bosque. Thank you very much cooks children’s staff!
The irreplaceable counselors who created a place where I could forget my disability and the social toll it enacted. They offered a kind of friendship that would have never graced my life outside the camp. Saying goodbye to them is still bittersweet.
This was the best place in childhood. Taught me how to swim and many other lessons.
You guys were awesome and we will cherish our memories forever.
