“Two summers ago (and I’m probably going to do it against next summer) I was a camp counselor at [Wonderland Camp] for twelve weeks. It’s in the Lake of the Ozarks. It’s a camp for anyone with cognitive or physical disabilities or ailments and it just gave me a really good change in perception of the world and it just kind of puts things — it’s a reality check basically. You just really enjoy the people you get to work with and everyone’s pretty sweet and nice, and society, at least in the US is kind of crappy to people with disabilities, so it’s nice to give them a break from being treated like they aren’t human.
