First and foremost, my children were invested in. They grew. They learned. They built confidence and friendships. They laughed and were filled with joy and memories. They witnessed real people acting out the very creed I read on the internet when I was pondering this family vacation. Camp Deerhorn is touching these kids’ lives who then go out into the world and touch more lives. What brought out the deepest emotions of my experience was the knowledge that a place like this exists. Yes, it can be done. It does exist. And, I was a part of it and forever it will be a part of me.
