A note from Kristina:
Over 10 years since being a camper, CER still influences my life daily. It is amazing how much the leadership workshops taught me at such a young age, and how significantly CER shaped my life. I learned to believe in myself and was given tools to succeed in school and in relationships. I learned how important respect is- for yourself and for others. I learned the value of surrounding myself with people that support me. The CER community was the ultimate support system. These are just a few of the many CER life lessons I still carry with me!
