My Y Story...


What YMCA camp means to me is the chance to do things that I don't usually get to do other places. It means the chance to have independence from my parents. It means that every summer I can go back to a place where I can have lots of fun doing things like sleeping out in the woods with just a tarp over my head (woo hoo) and eating stuff that not many people would not willingly try. It is good, I'll tell you that.
