"I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for this camp experience, Isabelle had SUCH a great time at camp.
She spent last weekend looking at her pictures, telling us stories about camp and still has not washed the ‘Love Ya!’ (written
in magic marker by her friends) off her arm. Her last year in school was a very difficult one. I think so much of Middle School
is about being like everyone else and there is one crucial way she will never be like her friends. But she was like everyone at
Circle and I KNOW how much that meant to her. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!"
"Sarah came back in the highest of spirits, eager to share with me the new songs and all that happened this past week at camp.
She says she wishes it were a couple weeks longer. And she is eagerly awaiting the time when she can be a Junior Volunteer."
"Sarah was in Bunk One this year and had a joyous experience at Circle of Tapawingo. As soon as I saw her on Friday afternoon,
I knew quite literally from the look in her eyes that she was deeply happy. Her eyes were more intensely green than they've been since
Daddy died. She told me that her eyes were green because she was so happy at camp, but that they were also red since she had been crying
because she was so sad to leave her friends. She can't wait to go back next year."
"I just want to say how much my kids loved camp. What a great crew you have and what a great thing you are doing for these kids."
"Thanks for providing such a special week for my daughter. She is still pumped up about the experience and
telling us snippets of her time with her Circle of Tapawingo friends. Lots of times she talks about
camp activities, but she clearly talked about her Dad with campers, too. Sharing with them was on a different
level than with other friends, because of their own experiences. I believe there were honest discussions that
weren't confused by lack of knowing (fear) what it's like to be missing a parent. Ultimately, my sense is
she, at least, doesn't feel alone. My hope is that some of her acquaintances become true friendships. You
have really made a difference. I hope we find a way to give something special to others in the way you have for my daughter."
"I am writing to thank you so much for providing my daughter with her camp experience. It was a great boost
to her confidence and a great comfort to her as we were approaching the one year anniversary of (her father's)
death. She loved camp and the people there very much. We are very lucky to have been included. They sound like incredible people.
What you are doing is so valuable. I don't know how to thank you."
"For the fourth time, she returned tanned and smiling with a nicer sparkle in her eyes. She retains a stronger
sense of self that is wonderful to see! What a gift you give these girls. I don't know what your secret is, but
it works! Thank you for all the effort you put into the experience."
