    I have truly found a home away from home. Camp means many things, to each person a new perspective, but it shows to me that anything is possible. People can find unlikely friendships in people that they wouldn’t talk to at school or in their community. It can strengthen old friendships and introduce you to new things like sports you haven’t played before. To me, Camp truly means family, and I have to say, thank you Camp Wenonah, for all of the great memories I have, and the memories to come.

    I just wanted to thank you for allowing my son the opportunity to attend Camp. He had a great time and came home with many new friends. He’s already asking if he can go back next year. For a kid who enjoys spending time indoors he seems to have found himself in a new and healthy lifestyle thanks to you.

    When I think ‘Camp,’ I think of the same words each time; friends, family, home, love. I think of the cabins, the lake, and the campgrounds. Put together, all these things create my summer home, my Camp Wenonah.

    Over the years, I have grown to love Camp more and more. Some may ask “why do you love Camp so much?” and for that there is no simple answer. To me, Camp is a home, with a family that loves you unconditionally. It is a home in which you are never left alone or without anything to do. A home where you don’t want to sleep or even blink, because when you do, you miss so much, so you try your hardest to live every moment. I love camp and I am counting down the days until I arrive there, returning home but at the same time feeling like I never left.

    I’ve never seen my child as happy as when I picked her up. It was her first time at sleep away camp and she wants to go for two weeks next year. Just that one well taught her more responsibility and independence. I’m sure she’s met some life long friends too.

    It’s the first time for my both children joined a camp and I am glad I made the right choice. They both enjoyed the time spent there, made new friends, learnt some new skills and would like to go back again.
