From Veronica P., Parent,
to one of our Camp Counselors
"We’ve been sending the girls to Fox for many years and our twin sons are at school-age Fox for their first time this week. We are big fans of Fox and believe it is the most wonderful experience for our kids... Well, this morning we woke up to find the most amazing post on Abby’s social media. It literally made me cry. I wanted to share it with you just because I want you to know how important you and the other counselors are in the kids’ lives. I know you already believe in what you do but I hope reading this makes you believe even more...
"Daughter's Instagram post: I never post stuff like this (and you definitely don’t have to read it) but this is a emotional rant that I felt like I had to say because I was really missing camp today and like it really hit me that this was my last year as a camper at Fox after 6 years. It's hard to believe that this place has changed me so much, but it really has made me into the person that I am today, and it took this year at camp to show me that. I will never forget the love and support that I got when I shared things that were really hard for me with my villa and best friends. My rag goals constantly remind me of the person that I want to be, and I never would have recognized the ways that I could change for the better to become that person without camp. Camp is and always has been one of the only places where I felt like I could be myself with no limits. Where I could talk about things that no one would judge me about and even cry about things and get love and support from the people with me. The connections that I have built with friends, LITs, and counselors are so amazing. I can’t think of a time at camp when I haven’t been on top of the world happy and full of joy. I can never be thankful enough or put into words how this camp has honestly changed my life and made me a better person. How it has forced me to go out of my comfort zone, but for my own good. How it has shown me that its okay to be 100% who am because why hide my true self? How it has shown me that it's okay to open up and trust other people, and most importantly, for the endless indescribable happiness that it has brought into my life. I will truly never forget the moments that I have has here that have defined who I am and taught me valuable life lessons. What an amazing thing to be a part of."
