I’ve been going to arthritis camp for six years now and I have one more year left and then I can become a counselor. But I first started going to arthritis camp in Wisconsin and that was regally cool for me because I was 11 years old and I didn’t know anyone there but we all are united because we all had arthritis or related diseases of the joints. And we do the normal things that other people do at camps such as like going swimming in a lake, doing arts and crafts, all that stuff and then I got moved to Lake Geneva in Wisconsin and that’s worth been ever since and I’ve continued to go mostly because I’ve made friends there. We’re still talk to a lot online which online has been such a great tool to connect with people and I even meet friends although other people from camp.
