This program is remarkable! I attended it every year I was eligible (although timidly at first), and it, along with the program it feeds into, was responsible for beginning my growth. I fell so in love with the people and more how it made me feel about myself, that I now am a director with the SD Ambassadors. I highly encourage all those eligible to give this camp a chance!
