Thank you for everything you did for me and for giving me the opportunity to come to Camp Joy. I enjoyed everything that we did, especially the ropes course. Even though the ropes course was scary and very high up, it was still fun to try new things. Something that I learned at Camp Joy was that if you touch an amphibian with dry hands you could harm it. I learned that it is good to sometimes go into your challenge zone because you can try new things or maybe get over a fear. One thing that I liked was the food. It was delicious, and the cooks did a great job. Something else I liked was the animals, especially the cute little bunny. Something else that is really important that I wanted to thank you for is all the games and activities which weren’t just fun, but educational. I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart to the top for the wonderful experience you gave me.
