Youth Leader 2013-2015; Mentor 2016, 2018
I credit Camp Eclipse for who I am today. It's been said time and time again that camp is magical. Once you attend Camp it's something no one can deny. It's like the wind, you can't see it but you can feel it. Camp Eclipse is a place where everyone is welcomed and embraced, where laughter is plentiful, and each person's struggles are supported by 50 other people. It's a place where strength and vulnerability become one.

Camp Eclipse is … magical. That’s one of the first words you’ll hear from past campers, youth leaders, and mentors – “Camp magic.” There’s a certain air of love, acceptance, strength, community, and resiliency that you experience at Camp that I’ve never truly found anywhere else. You are unconditionally loved at Camp and you’re welcomed with open arms into an ever-growing Camp Family.
Camp Eclipse means more than just acceptance. I am not accepted at camp. No ... I am embraced; I am understood; and I am celebrated for who I am, for what I can achieve, and for what I have to give. Camp Eclipse means having a family of people who truly understands what it is like to be LGBTQ and it means not having to walk the path alone.
