Danielle's Disneyland

Danielle has been attending the Adult Retreat at Camp Courage for the past 21 years because, as she describes it, it's her personal Disneyland. 

After having a poor experience at a different camp when she was younger, Danielle was a little skeptical to try summer camp again. She decided to give it another try and, according to her, it was one of the best decisions she has ever made. 

Danielle is able to do things at camp that she would not be able to do easily at home because she doesn't have enough people or the right resources. 

"I look forward to this session so very much that I can't put into words without writing volumes and volumes of books," Danielle said with a smile.
