Emily’s Story


Camp would not be the same without the people. I made so many amazing new friends and met really cool people who I most likely would never have met otherwise. Most of these friends, I still talk to and hang out with every week.


I love that there are so many different opportunities to try new activities.


At camp, I learned how to be a better person — camp teaches many good values like responsibility, independence, teamwork and friendship. Also, I was never scared to be myself.


I hope SCOPE campers learn more about themselves when they try new things and meet new people.
I hope that they feel safe at camp and comfortable to be themselves.
Also, I hope that the campers love camp as much as I do and make the most of their time there.


Camp is my favorite place in the world and I wish I could be there every day. I can’t imagine how different my life would be without camp, so I hope that I can change other people’s lives too. I love camp so much and it is a place where no matter where I go in life, I will never forget about it.
