September Featured Camper: Robert

Sep 28, 2018 | Featured Camper

Robert is a hilarious, fun-loving, crazy-about-life 10-year-old who will always put a smile on your face. Although originally from China, he was united with his forever family about 2 years ago when he was adopted.

Robert loves spending time with his siblings and playing with cars and legos. He joined us at camp this summer for the first time, and we’re so glad he did!
