Featured Volunteer: Laura Tiberio – Camp Fire Central Puget Sound

Tiger lilyChanging Day Campers Lives’…One Summer at a Time!

We are thrilled to introduce Laura who volunteers her time and talents each summer as a site director for our Carkeek Park Day Camp.

“Our entire family looks forward to camp all year long as it’s such a magical experience for us. I am inspired by working with other dedicated volunteers not to mention watching the kids light up when they learn how to start a fire for the first time or identify a vine maple or cook a carrot cake in a box oven.”

Laura’s three kids, Emma, Henry & Laina, look forward to coming to Carkeek’s Day Camp each summer!

Why she volunteers:

For the kids! My kids AND all the others that attend. I love watching their faces light up when they try something new! I started volunteering after I went to sign my kids up and the camp was full. I received a call from another volunteer informing me that my kids could easily come off the waitlist if I agreed to volunteer at the camp. I volunteered that first summer and I have been hooked ever since!

Shoutout:

Our teen volunteers do an incredible job each year!

“I love sending campers home dirty, tired, and grinning like mad, so ready to come back and do it all over again the next day! I am so grateful that my own kids get to have this incredible experience and since I am a volunteer we get to enjoy it together!”
