I volunteered with the Kids Camp 2012, and it was an amazing experience. Being a very hot and dusty year, I felt it was a really prominent year for Kid’s Camp. We not only were providing a sheltered, cool place, complete with water balloon launcher, but also had a creative energy and nurturing atmosphere. For children, a festival can be an overwhelming place, but through volunteering at the Kid’s Camp, I felt that I was elevating the experience and making it a positive, enriching memory. With the amazing people I was working with, Alyssa, Leah, and Ellie, just to name a few of the tremendous people, we were able to provide artistic projects, developmental appropriate activities, and a safe environment. I had a great experience at Summer Camp Kid’s Camp 2012, and I cannot wait to come back as a volunteer 2013!
