Forever Changed

It’s the last day of camp and I have loved the entire experience. Despite the language barrier, I was able to make real connections and relationships with my campers and the other campers. Camp has allowed me to come out of my shell and give my all. Swamp has the ability to turn your whole world around, if you let it. Swamp Corp has been a humbling experience for me. It has showed me that whether you are from North Carolina or from another country, you have the opportunity to you build deep, spiritual friendships that will last a lifetime. I can’t imagine where I would be without the friendships I’ve made at Swamp and Swamp Corp. The atmosphere of Camp is unlike any other. Swamp inspires me everyday to be myself. To worship the way I worship; to dance crazily if I want; to be quirky and silly, and to feel safe knowing that no one is going to judge me. I can’t imagine my life without Swamp. I always strive to be the person Swamp has taught me to be. To be hardworking, giving, spiritual, thoughtful, and to be myself.
