The best part of summer? Camp Sparkle!

June 9, 2016

I don’t know if there is one thing I do not like about camp. It is the perfect atmosphere for kids to open up about their situations and have fun with new people. It allows them the opportunity to talk with people who can relate and build relationships with others. Even as a counselor who has been there for many years, I find myself learning something new about my own cancer experience with each camp and each new group of kids. In that environment, children feel free to explore their thoughts and feelings and ask questions that they would be to nervous to ask otherwise. It is one of the most amazing parts of camp. Camp Sparkle is also just a place to have fun and go crazy and be energetic just like any summer camp which makes this camp a blast!. This year I’m looking forward to hanging out with the kids and helping them through their cancer story. I’m also excited for all of the fun activities and to see all of the campers let loose and be crazy!  – Bailey Callahan, Cancer Pathways intern
