The camp experience is so important for these children because it gives them a sense of identity, a sense of purpose, it adds to their self-efficacy ten times over. It changes you.
Coming here is going to be the best week of your life. Regardless of what week you come, regardless of who you are, you’re going to change.
We love 4-H camp. It builds relationships, leadership skills, self-discipline, self-motivation, and gives young people a safe environment for personal growth.
This place, I feel like I can be myself. I’ve waited a whole year for summer just to get back here.
First I was afraid to talk to people and I was shy. Now I can talk and be myself.
Everybody makes it so that every week is the best week of your life here and that’s really special.
Every year there is always the person on your side of the cabin who becomes a great friend.
Coming to BJP showed me there are people out here that want to help you, there are people who want to change your life every day, there are people who are going to pick you up.
I always said I can’t and now I say I can.
