✨THUNDERBIRD GAVE ME YOU ✨ Here is Reagan’s story: “I started attending camp when I was going into 5th grade. I never thought I would have the opportunity to attend a camp like Camp Thunderbird because it looked too good to be true and out of reach for me and my family at the time but once I received the opportunity I was more thrilled than ever! This summer will be my sixth summer at camp and my first summer on staff. Camp has provided me with so much such as lifelong friendships, amazing role models, once in a lifetime opportunities, a home away from home, and a place of belonging that you dread leaving but get to look forward to all throughout the year. What I am most excited for this summer is to be able to give back all that I can to camp, leave a positive impact on as many campers that i can, and make sure they have an unforgettable experience. I hope after reading this you can consider donating to camp and allowing a child to have a life changing experience like the one I had growing up because who doesn’t want to go to a place where you can have week long sleepovers with your best friends?!!!” ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ We are so thankful to have Reagan joining our staff this summer! Our 48 Hour Challenge will not only impact campers this summer, but for years to come because who knows, maybe they will join our staff one day!! 🤩🥳
✨THUNDERBIRD GAVE ME YOU ✨ Here is a story from Sarah Fairley about what Thunderbird gave her! “Thunderbird gave me family. I grew up being the only child in my house with a single mother. I never really had much family or real friends. My mom found out about camp in 2015 and it changed my life forever. I didn't know it yet but those 2 weeks were about to change my life forever. I found a family at camp. I found people that grew with me every year as we attended back. Each year I would count down the days till I could go back and see my "family". As each year passed on we would get older and start new things. The seconds waiting for that moment that we would run to each other on the ga felid like we had been apart forever we're the best seconds of my life. Camp gave me life long friendships and unforgettable experiences. Camp gave me the family I felt like I never had, and I will never forget what camp thunderbird has done for me. I recommend camp to everyone, it's a chance to change a mindset, meet new people, and take risks and chances you never thought you would. Thank you Camp Thunderbird!” Thankful that Thunderbird gave us SARAH 🤍 ————————————— Give to our 48 Hour Fundraising Challenge to create the opportunity for more campers to find their camp family 🤍
