Have you seen the commercial by the Thai Life Insurance company? It's a delightful series of vignettes showing a young man doing ordinary acts of kindness. The narrator at one point asks us: "And what does he receive for all of this?
I think of what happens at Camp Fowler. I'd like to promise you that your child will receive higher grades at school, make the soccer team, or be 15% more attractive. But what does your child receive from engaging in a week immersed in kindness, adventure, challenges, faith, trees, and laughter?
But your child will experience emotions. As the video reminds us: 'she will reach a deeper understanding. He will feel the love. And a world made more beautiful.'
And that's better even than making the soccer team.
See you at camp.
