“Sometimes the best way to figure out who you are is to get to a place where you don’t have to be anything else.”
We are halfway through our most exciting time of the year – summer camp! Over the past 4 weeks, more than 100 campers each week sung their hearts out to silly camp songs during Flag every morning, made brand new and lifelong friendships, went to Six Flags and tubed down the river, and thrived during each camp experience created just for them.
Our campers of all abilities experienced the true joy that is camp, and soared beyond their limitations to do things some never thought possible. Here are a just a few of those transformative moments:
“Morgan’s mom said she’d never get in the pool because she hates water. On the very first day of camp, she went swimming and has every day since.”
“Dakota hadn’t swam in over a year because he was afraid. This summer, he went swimming with ESP and wants to go again. His goal now is to touch the bottom of the pool in the deep end. He had so much fun!”
“Shelby was terrified of the pool. But on the first day of camp, she willingly got in the pool and enjoyed it!”
Camp creates an atmosphere for each of our campers to face their fears, exceed expectations, and surprise themselves in seeing all the amazing and brave things they are capable of. Camp is not just about having fun. Camp is about creating a home where our campers are loved for exactly who they are and get to see the best versions of themselves. We thank you, our Fans, for allowing ESP to create this magical place each summer. We could not do it without you.
