As a staff member of YMCA Camp High Harbour, I understand what a special place camp has been to thousands of campers, including myself. With having spent so many summers on Lake Allatoona, I believe there is not better place for kids to learn such important life skills than the positive, uplifting and energetic environment that is camp.
Growing up, camp was always a major influence in my life. My three older sisters went, so following in their footsteps as the youngest child, I looked foward to spending a couple of weeks at a beautiful camp every summer. Intially camp was a fun place where I could meet new friends and try new things. Little did I know these people would become my closest friends. Through camp I have come to know God. I've built a strong relationship with Him and I know that the God who let me experience incredible adventures at camp is the same God at home. No matter where I go I know I am loved unconditionally by God and by my friends that I've met. Camp has also helped me grow as a person. I've learned to disregard what others think and only focus on being myself. I make the most out of every situation and constantly look for ways to help other people. Without camp I wouldn't be the person I am. Camp is a blessing and something I'll never take for granted. It is a special experience that I wish everyone could experience.
