    My Daughter is an immensely creative human who longs to be included. She is a natural performer and lover of all things crafty and theatrical. She loves animals, the outdoors, glitter and music. This summer will be her second year as a camper and we watched her blossom after coming home from her first session last summer and truly believe that another camp session would help her blossom fully in to the human she is meant to be. She proudly waves her rainbow flag and has become eager to get to know and connect with other members of the rainbow alliance. Thank you for your generosity.

    With kindness,
