This summer will be something magical…
At the end of the summer at Pearce Williams we ask our staff to finish the following sentence: “Because of camp I…” It was very interesting to see our staff’s responses to this simple statement.
Here are some of the Because Of Camp answers from Pearce Williams Staff:
