Consider these quotes about Power of Hope from other teens:
- I have been to quite a lot of camps…and this community stood out like a banana in a cherry tree. Never before have I spent a week with kids my age and never once was ridiculed or made fun of. There was so much love.
- I loved being able to come into myself and feel truly whole, something I haven't felt before. The connections that I made here with others transcended daily interactions—and I've made friends who I know will be present for the rest of my life.
