The moment I stepped off of the bus on my first day of camp, I immediately felt so welcomed and accepted that all of my anxiousness and nervousness disappeared. I was so happy and excited I could hardly sit still! As the week went by I made so many new friends and learned so many new things from other amputees who were just like me. I never felt like the odd one out and everyone wanted me to join in their games and activities. On the last night of camp I cried like a baby because I never wanted to leave. I had no idea one week at Camp Joy would have such a huge impact on my life.
