Testimonials

The two weeks at Cal Aggie Camp taught me more about myself and my life's passion than years in the classroom ever could have. Being a counselor for CAC made me realize just how much I love giving back to others, and how happy helping others can truly make you. It may be exhausting to take care of these kids around the clock for two weeks, but despite the tantrums, attitudes, and sleep deprivation, they make it worth it. Whether it's a teenager confiding their secrets in you, a "tough" kid making you a friendship bracelet, or a six year old crying when you have to leave each other at the end of the week, you will come to realize just how important Cal Aggie Camp is in the lives of our campers, and that is what makes it important to me. These amazing children coupled with an enthusiastic staff keep the Cal Aggie spirit alive year after year and make it the best two weeks of the summer! I am incredibly lucky to have gained so much from Cal Aggie Camp, and I only hope I can give a fraction of that back to others!
