I have had the opportunity to volunteer as a cabin counselor for teen girls for two years now. I have learned so many things, and seen such strength and wisdom come from such young minds. Camp brings so much joy through activities such as: honoring a loved one who is gone through art, discussion, and games; camp-wide water balloon fights; singing songs beneath the stars; worst-dressed competitions; and hiking.  There are many more moments that will be in the memory of these children and teens (and the volunteers) for a long time to come. It amazes me to see children and teens who have endured a great loss be able to manage to come together and allow emotions to flow, while still having fun.  These youth understand each other, as one never has to tell someone when to respect others. Because it is all understood without a word being said. Thank you for letting me be a part of Camp Chrysalis, where magic seems to happen.
