What do people say?
"Camp ReCreation cannot be fully described with only words. That is why everyone should come and experience one (or two) life-changing weeks during the summer. It is truly an experience of a lifetime."
Kourtney Heinrich, Teacher
"Camp is always impossible to describe. It is the most stretching, trying, and incredible weeks of my year. Although I am exhausted by the end of the week I don't want to leave. I never thought it was possible to become such good friends with so many people in just a few days. I would encourage everyone to be a counselor for at least one summer."
Alyssa Tonneson, Counselor
"Camp is an exciting and inspirational event that anyone should at least experience once in their life, because they will probably be hooked and come back more!"
Brianna Fleck, Counselor
"I would say that [camp] is hands down the best volunteer work I have ever done. Work isn't work when you're having fun."
Brady Wingenbach, Counselor
"It was such an eye-opening experience for me. It gave me more patience and understanding. I loved all the campers because they have such big hearts and they just love unconditionally. I made a ton of new friends. I just love Camp ReCreation!"
