The first time I heard about Camp Trailblazers was when I was introduced to Doctor Ross and met nurses Kathy and Cynthia. Kathy told me about the camp in Manitoba. I’ve been to three camps now and my dad has driven for 12 hours to get me there. We do camp stuff. We go swimming in the lake,
horseback riding, play tag, go rock climbing and I like archery. I even went to camp when I just had an op and had to stay on a liquid diet. There’s nothing like going camping with friends and having hotdogs done in the blender. It was good. Most of all I like meeting other
kids, like my friend Jessica. I’ve made some great friends who I still talk to online. That’s why Trailblazers is really
important to me. I get to meet other people with facial differences, and knowing that we are not the only ones makes all the difference.
I hope they get the Family camp going, I know my brother who is 11 years
old, would love it. And that way, he will not be left out.
