The campus is beautiful, and all the teachers and staff are so nice. I instantly connected with lots of other campers. Here, I don't feel like I have to hide myself. I am no longer shy to express myself. And the classes are amazing! The theatre program is phenomenal; no other place compares. I truly feel like I am making art.
