Camp Swamp Counselor and Camper
"Counselors are special people. I feel safe around them and you don't get that in the regular world. A regular high school or college student won't talk to me or pay attention to me normally. But at camp I know I can walk up to any one of them and they won't laugh in my face. It's so different here." 11 Year Old Camper
