Lydia was a second-year staff member at RKY this past summer.
RKY is my home, it’s a place where I not only feel like I belong but I know I belong. Throughout my life I never felt like I belonged anywhere, other than camp and I know that I’m defiantly not the only person who feels this way.
Why do I keep coming back? Well at camp I’m a better version of myself, at camp I feel like I can actually be me, all of me.
Camp has made me a better person, this place has made me love myself and believe in myself, this is something I never thought would be possible. Camp makes everything seem possible. RKY has made me grow as a person and taught me how to be crazy and how to come out of my shell, and that its okay to be crazy sometimes. I believe that camp is so beneficial to everyone, I wish everyone could experience what RKY has to offer, because RKY is truly amazing.
