Camp Hope gives low-income West Chicago kids new opportunities for present, future
WEST CHICAGO – When Blythe Garma was asked to speak at the B.R. Ryall YMCA's annual golf outing fundraiser, the decision to talk about her experiences as a counselor at Camp Hope in West Chicago was an easy one.
"It's been a blessing to be a part of a really special camp like Camp Hope because these kids – as much as they have so much fun just being here – I just love being around them, and they just give me a good end to my summer," said Garma, 20, of Wheaton.
This summer marked Garma's third time working at the free week-long camp, which provides children living in low-income housing in West Chicago the opportunity to enjoy activities they may not otherwise experience.
