In early 2014, out of the blue, we got a cover letter email from a former camper asking to volunteer because he liked what we were doing. He never asked for anything but a chance to help and the opportunity to learn. He showed up (early), worked really hard, did a good job, and EARNED himself a green shirt (and a pay check!) a couple seasons earlier than most.
