Their camp provides a friendly, bullying-free environment where children, youth, and young adults can feel completely accepted for who they are—often for the first time in their lives.
I love being able to help people and I feel like I’ve done that on this trip. We can see the progress and performance we’re getting on a daily basis, and it’s really cool to see that. I also enjoyed all the quests we did, building things, painting walls, moving wood and cleaning were all very enjoyable and helpful.
Some of the key takeaways from this trip were that alongside more services and volunteering opportunities in the future, True Colors Camp and all it stands for (liberal space for LGBT+ children and the importance of of that in today’s community), the impact people can have on you if you just spend a week with them, how big the Mall of America really is and take advantage of all the opportunities it can offer you even if they can stress you out.
