Camp Eclipse helped me become who I am today. When I attended I was struggling with everything in life, I didn’t know where I really fit with people around me. I wanted somewhere that I could just be myself and I got this. I remember many things from that short time that still come into my mind.
Without camp I would of never been able to get to the point I am right now. I’m almost graduated college and I’ve been married to an amazing man for 3 years now. Being Bi I never knew where I fit in but at camp? I was accepted. No one ever turned their back on me.
I promise that as soon as you get off that bus you will have the best time of your life. You will be able to smile and laugh... escape your problems. When I left the weekend I felt like I was on cloud nine... I was happy for the first time. I carry this with me every single day... I also still to this day carry my rock from that weekend in my wallet. Being able to see that camp is still helping youth who were in the same place as me makes my heart warm.
Love conquers all... remember that. Remember that you’re you for a reason you shouldn’t change for anything. Thank you camp eclipse for making me who I am today. And helping me realize my worth. Keep doing amazing things.
