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.”
