How Camp Shalom Impacted My Life

A Personal Look at How Your Donation to the Annual Tzedakah Campaign Impacts the Lives of Local Community Members and Those Around the World.

Will Crawford-Lamal
Well, there are so many ways Camp Shalom has impacted my life, but I think the biggest way was it helped instill confidence in me. Camp Shalom helped me understand that being yourself is the best way to be. Sometimes, people try to show off or act like someone they’re not just to fit in. Camp helped me understand that by just being me the best people in life will love you for who you are.

Camp also taught me that working together is quite frankly one of the best ways to get things done in life. Whether its work or sports, working in a team environment is important to know how to do. Working in a team environment can help everyone involved to inspire each other to be the very best they can be. As I get older and my life continues to go on, I realize more and more how important that is. I’m constantly involved in some type of team environment and I find that camp has helped me realize that connecting with every person involved is important. Everyone is different, but if you can find a way to connect with everyone, you can really do some special things.

When it all comes down to it, a lot of who I am, and some of the morals I try to live by, are because of Camp Shalom. I definitely wouldn’t be the person I am without going to Shalom. The people I’ve met and the memories I have from Camp will always hold a special place in my heart.
