Camp was an Amazing Experience

"The Indiana University camp that I attended was great. The staff was awesome and I learned so much. They were all so nice and easy to talk to. They were very enthused about the camp and were also willing to answer any questions. They always made sure we were having a good time. I was also able to make some new friends. Many of us still keep in touch and we all plan on attending the camp next year at the same time. This camp was an amazing experience."
