We asked a long-time Co-op Camper, Staffer, and Program Assistant, Kallin Kehrig, to tell us about what Co-op Camp has given him in his life. I met this young man in January of 2019 and he made a lasting impression on me. Here he is, in his own words, telling us about his experience.
When I first heard of Co-op Camp I was young, shy, and above all, I did NOT want to go to this new summer camp my parents had signed me up for. Pulling up into a parking lot full of people I didn’t know was terrifying, especially because a handful were wearing silly costumes. I remember asking my mom if I really had to go to this weird new summer camp. It turns out that I did, in fact, have to go to this new summer camp. The first words I told my mom when I got back from camp? “Mom, I have to go back next year!”
