What participants are saying:
"A.R.E. Camp isn't just a camp, it's a community, a family. It's my community. It's my family. And I am one of the luckiest people EVER to be able to experience it. Camp is my happy place and I have no idea where I would be without it." – L.C.
"Camp isn't just a part of my life, it was the start of my life. Because of it, I came out of my shell. I connected with other people, and ultimately, myself." –G.J.

Sydney Iwanski, a twenty-two-year-old Virginia native, loves riding front row on roller-coasters, swimming in the ocean, and dancing by herself. She recently graduated from George Mason University with a BA in Psychology and plans on pursuing a career in clinical mental health counseling. She discovered the A.R.E. and A.R.E. Camp through her professor, Mark Thurston, at GMU and joyfully served as a camp counselor this past summer and during the New Year's Youth Retreat. She continues to seek opportunities to give back and looks forward to the blessings 2017 has to offer.
Tyler William Dewey, a native New Yorker and preschool teacher, loves to play the guitar, sing, and hike in the mountains. He has been going to A.R.E. Camp since he was three years old, and now is one of the program directors at the Camp. Dancing in the warm summer rain is his favorite activity, along with teaching young people how to meditate. He is passionate about being a light unto others, and learning how to do that in a world that so desperately needs all of us to shine our own unique light. His favorite quote? "Bloom where you're planted".
