I am looking forward to working  at Camp Kind this summer because of the values the camp teaches to children. I think it is very important that as well as having a fun and exciting summer, children should aware of the issues affecting the world around them. 

Two aspects of Camp Kind that I relate to particularly are the relationship between the camp and young refugees, and the activities that encourage environmental preservation. As the grandchild of a refugee I have found recent attitudes towards people in this situation upsetting, so I find the idea of creating empathy and understanding to be encouraging. Also, I feel that the damage being done to nature and the environment is something that is often underestimated and overlooked, so educating children to try to fix this is something I would like to have the chance to do.

I chose to work at Camp Kind because it is so important to care about others, to volunteer, and to learn about the challenges the world is facing. There is so much value to understanding issues in the world and becoming passionate about them, and knowing that you can make a difference. I want to help campers realize how important kindness and caring are, and how much they can contribute to the community and world around them.

Empowering children to advocate and volunteer for what they are passionate about is an incredible opportunity and adds so much to society. Caring for refugees and the environment are relevant issues today and they require our attention. Teaching children to relate to these issues is a great way to raise awareness and show them how their actions can change the world for the better. Treating other people and animals with compassion is so important, and realizing how rewarding and fun volunteering can be is such a valuable lesson.

Childhood is a very important time during an individual’s life. During this period, you not only are encouraged to have fun but it is also the time when you learn the most about the world. I feel that Camp Kind combines these two factors together perfectly. By volunteering each day, the campers will be helping to give something back to the community they live in, whilst having fun and learning about different themes at the same time.

The more children enjoy volunteering when they are young, the more likely they are to carry on as they get older. Over the last few years I have had many volunteering opportunities in different settings. I would really like to be able to pass on the knowledge and enjoyment that I gained from these experiences and I feel that Camp Kind is the perfect place to do so.
