Counselor Perspective: Pumbaa
The first time I heard about Camp Kesem was in my organic chemistry class during my sophomore year. This immediately caught my interests because I love kids. When I found out that I had the opportunity to become a coordinator, I knew I had to take it. I knew that this would be a great experience for me, but my week of camp turned into so much more. In just one week, I learned so much from these kids. I was able to understand what they were going through, and to really be exposed to something that I have never known much about. This made such a huge impact on my life, and the bonds that I created with these children were just so strong. Watching these kids have the time of their lives for one whole week, completely stress free, made all of the work that I put into it SO worth it!
