Camp Swamp

Hello! My name is Astrid "Carrie" Ortiz. I am a camper of this lovely summer Christian camp known as Swamp. When I first arrived at Swamp, I was very anxious about the way people would treat me and if I would be able to make friends. Fortunately, my fears disappeared into thin air. I was put into a cabin filled with the most amazing people I have ever met. Everyone in my cabin including my counselors, helped me get out of my shell little by little. I am cannot express how grateful I am for the girls in my cabin and my counselors. One of my favorite things about Swamp is the atmosphere. The atmosphere at Swamp is friendly and inviting. I loved the way how everyone treated each other with kindness and respect. This atmosphere is what also allowed me to be myself. You can act as crazy and as silly as you want and no one will judge you. If it wasn't for the Swamp, I would have not been able to have experience the kindness and love I have experienced this week. I am very grateful for what the Swamp has done for me and I am grateful for the new friendships I have formed.

Thank you very much!

Sincerely, Astrid "Carrie" Ortiz
