Thankful Thursday…and I want to share just a bit about an amazing place – Camp Friendship! Now..I really have no memory and for some reason I am thinking that I’ve already posted about the camp and, if that is the case, please feel free to skip this….but be sure to check back tomorrow for the winner of the Starbucks card (if you didn’t leave a suggestion for yesterday’s photo..do that first!) Anyways…..
Camp Friendship is a camp for kids living with cancer. The kids can be at any stage – actively in treatment or even in remission – and have any type of cancer. It is located in the middle of beautiful horse country in Maryland and the grounds of fantastic. All of the programs are completely funded by donations and even the doctors and nurses (camp is medically staffed 24 hours and all types of treatments are provided) are all volunteers. They offer anything to do that a kid would love…but it is the atmosphere at camp that is the most amazing! The staff love the kids and the kids really accept, enjoy and love each other. You really would have to be there to appreciate it! (Luckily, I have had the privilege to work at camp for one week during the last two summers.)
