Just got choked up reading YEA Camp application of this amazing 12 year old coming to camp this summer—who wouldn’t want their kids spending summer with peers like these? (This is totally worth the inspiring read): “An issue that is very close to my heart is people living on the streets. I went to Boston on a trip for my birthday when I saw an old man walking around, begging for money, so I gave it to him. This happened four or five more times, and I realized this tragic problem.We were heading home and I was nearly crying from the sadness of seeing so many people just out there, living in the streets with no one caring about them. That’s when I decided to start a fundraiser called Rainbows for Charity. This fundraiser raises money to the homeless. I make charms, rings, and bracelets out of little colorful rubber bands and sell them for a dollar each. All profits go to the homeless, so I do chores to earn more rubber bands to make the bracelets, instead of taking money from the profits. I’m thinking of going to Boston and personally handing out food gift cards. Although the plan has not yet been totally thought through, I do not want to give the money to a homeless shelter, beacuse I feel that giving people a gift, from me to them, is just priceless. I want to let them know that somebody cares about them.”

Can’t wait to meet amazing teens who write stuff like THIS on their camp applications: “I would like to attend YEA Camp because I want to discuss social injustices with people other than those in my school. I would love to learn the history behind huge movements that took place in the 1900s and how they influence our society. Meeting people from around Massachusetts would put me in contact with teens with cultural differences and economic backgrounds.” Whoa. Camp is just around the corner. Register for an amazing summer you will not forget!
