“I decided to volunteer as I was at a pivotal time in my life, having just graduated from University, I felt the call to dedicate some of my time to others. My time spent on the shores of Lake Issy-Kul at camp were both fulfilling and reflective. The fun and laughter shared with the children and staff of the camp is something that will stay with me for the rest of my life”.
