    Instead of being a shadow in health class when we bring up a topic on HIV and AIDS, I make the shadow. It has helped shape me into the man I am today.

    Camp Dreamcatcher means more to me than most people realize. I have been coming since I was five, and every year I learn something new, meet new people, and open up about things I’ve kept bottled for years. I love all the people. I love all the support I get and others get as well. It’s a safe place where anything can be said and there are no worries. ‘Many a child, looked up and smiled, here in this circle of love’* means everything to me. It is nothing but truth. It is my circle of love. That is the describable part about My camp. The rest is indescribable.

    A big thank you for the amazing week my boys enjoyed at camp! It's so fun to see their smiles and hear their stories. It is truly making a positive impact on their lives and as parents we appreciate that more than I can express. THANK YOU SO MUCH! God bless you and all who are involved in some way with making it a success each year.
