"I had a great time at camp, I got to see different types of animals like: a mountain lion, an owl, a snake, and I learned about rocks, soil and living things"

"I thank you for donating money to our school so we could go to camp. I learned that camp fires could be quite fun at night"

"Thank you for giving us money for camp. If it wasn't for you, many kids would've stayed in school while other kids had fun"
