We had a beautiful weekend with 19 of our Camper2Counselors at Camp Jekyll this weekend. During our time there, we went seining, enjoyed a dolphin boat tour, played on the beach, and more. We were also taught the “Love Notes” curriculum which focuses on healthy relationship development and how to make wise decisions in our relationships, led by Board Member and volunteer, Thomas Cotton. Overall, it was a great weekend with these campers and we already cannot wait until the next one.
