For two weeks, I was able to be a part of the Inner City Youth Charitable Foundation as a camp counselor for 36 amazing boys from inner city Chicago. I spent 4 days in Chicago, touring the city and seeing where the boys come from, and then we brought the boys back to Idaho for 10 days of camp. It was the most life changing two weeks.
Before I go into my camp experience, here is a look at our Chicago adventures. I'm grateful I was able to have this experience with 11 of my fellow classmates in the Social Work program.
Well, that's the gist of our Chicago trip. Trying to figure out city transit really made me respect the people who do it on a daily basis, especially our boys who we worked with. Chicago is beautiful, and I loved touring the city. I can't wait to go back someday!
