Camper Quotes

“I’m having an existential crisis! You are making me rethink my world!” (Personally, this was my favorite quote from a camper last summer 2021.  The kids were debating an issue and trying to see the “other” side. We got the desired outcome.)
“I have friends! I have real friends!”
“I can’t remember the last time I was this relaxed.”
“I thought I was going to die without my phone.  Turns out it is much more fun not to have to think about responding all the time.”
“I wish someone would have told me sooner what it means to be gifted.  All this time I thought something was wrong with me!”
“For the first time in my life I think I get myself!”
“WOW!  I came here anxious and wanting to go home, then on Monday I was already feeling great!  I just want to thank you guys so much for this amazing week!”
“The experience was miraculous!”
“All of us loved it so much!  Please do it again and again!”
“Thank you for letting me be a ground breaker for SOAR Camp and pairing me with an amazing cabin.  I will always remember this experience.”
“Thanks for this great opportunity!  It was nice and peaceful to get away from all of the stress I had.  I liked learning, but also just being around people like me.  Please continue to do this for more people!  I could seriously relax!”
“Thank you so much for this experience.  My favorite part of camp was the total “camp experience” and getting to know and make friends in and out of my cabin.”
“I just want to thank you for letting me come to this amazing camp!”
“My favorite thing has been all of the super cool classes!”
“Thank you for finding Waypost as a place to hold the camp.  I gotta say, I owe you big time!  Since being here I’ve learned so much more about nature, archaeology, our ancestors, surface area, binary, music, art, writing and much more.  Thank you for showing us how to advocate for ourselves and keeping a summer camp setting throughout the week.  I’ve loved everybody here, the staff, the instructors and being with other kids that are gifted like me.  This week has been amazing and I will always remember it.  The amount that I’ve learned and have been exposed to and the happiness I’ve had over the past week is unexplainable.  Thank you for showing me that I am amazing whoever I choose to be.”
“Thank you so much for everything you did!  I appreciate all of your hard work and effort to make camp FUN!  Everything about camp is fun because of you!”
“The entire SOAR camp experience was incredible. I made lots of amazing friends and I learned so much from everything we did. I would definitely come back to SOAR camp.”
“Being at camp SOAR was such a great experience! The counselors were caring and fun, and I loved getting to socialize with other gifted kids. Camp games were pretty lit!”
“We loved the food, the hand-picked fresh vegetables from the camp garden and the songs by the fire camp.”
