Quotes From the Children Served by Camp Dreamcatcher

“I had somebody I could talk to and learned that I’m always going to be perfect just the way I am. It’s important to have a place like Camp because it gives you a break from what you do at home and gives you surprises.  I feel taken care of. I like that we are different colors.”

6 year-old Camper

“I receive love at Camp Dreamcatcher. It is easier to talk about feelings at camp because everyone has them. I don’t think people outside of camp understand.”

12 year-old Camper

““I am the same as my friends at camp because we like to have fun, know someone who is sick with HIV/AIDS. I love the counselors at camp because they help me to play and they give me HOPE I feel so loved and safe at camp.”

7 year-old Camper

“My dad is in jail and I was able to talk about him not being around. I learn that you need to be respectful. Camp Dreamcatcher is a great place because there is no other place like it.”
