I've been involved with Special Love since 1997 and this is my 13th year as a camp counselor. In addition to esteemed positions such as the Chief "Glam-ologist" for the Glamour Class and Choreographer for the Dance Class, I've been on the Special Love Board since 2001
I am a bad singer. Like tone-deaf-nails-on-chalkboard crazy bad. When I was in high school, the family joke was that I was asked to sing solo…you know, so low that no one could hear me. Singing in public fills me with fear similar to sitting at the top of a rollercoaster with no seatbelt.
And here I am at a camp where everyone is encouraged to lead songs. Hmmm.
I am truly humbled by the amazing group of volunteers who have gathered here for a week of service and compassion. Like most families, we are diverse. There are extroverts and introverts. There are young and not as young. There are medical experts and those who don’t know a rubber glove from a rubber band. There are veterans who have been doing this for almost 30 years and rookies. There are country music fans and rockers. There are former campers now rooming with their former counselors.
We're just getting started here at Camp Fantastic... stay tuned for more! It's our 30th anniversary, so there will be a lot to celebrate!
We do BIG things at camp. We have camp carnivals with games, prizes, motorcycle rides, a dunk tank and fire truck rides. We transform bland cafeterias into dazzling cruise lounges. We put together over 25 daily class offerings including film class, archery, canoeing, jewelry making, duct tape designs, bottle rocketry, and much more.
If you’ve ever wondered “What is Camp Fantastic all about?” or “ What makes it so special?” then stay tuned here for regular updates and photos from the “Special Love Boat” that set sail from Camp Fantastic 2011 yesterday.
