I feel so privileged to have spent eight summers at camp and I cannot thank you enough for providing me with one of the most valuable experiences of my life. Camp has shaped who I am as a person and taught me skills and lessons that I could not have learned anywhere else.You create an atmosphere at camp where girls can take risks and exceed their own expectations, where they can explore the potential of the outdoors and learn to appreciate it, where they can gain independence and learn to co-operate with others, and where they can feel comfortable and accepted. In my experience, I learned that something as simple as a smile or a “thank you” can make someone’s day, and that being a good listener and having confidence in others can help them achieve more than they could have ever expected. I am so grateful for the friends, the memories, and all that I learned from Camp Mi-A-Kon-Da. I could not imagine a more positive, fulfilling and enjoyable camp experience.
