Camp Koru: The place where…
You “Live to surf; Surf to live.”
I learned to paddleboard and outrigger canoe.
I swam with sea turtles.
I made deep friendships with those who “get it”.
I felt the love of others from their gifts of time and generosity.
A conversation about cancer and side effects flows as easily as one about the weather.
I don’t need to explain my medicine containers and sore joints.
God placed the people I needed in my space at the perfect time.
Campfire discussions connect people.
Sleeping on a bed under the stars is encouraged.
Moonlight and waves put me to sleep every night.
An outdoor shower feels like paradise.
I learned to be thankful for this body again.
I’m not the only one with scars like mine.
Hawaiian elders can heal a soul.
Peace lives. ￼❤️
