On the the final night at Camp SAY, we all gather around the campfire and look up at the moon. We look up and know that SAY is bigger than camp, bigger than any physical place. SAY is as big as all of us, together, across the world. If we’re feeling isolated and alone, we can look up, wherever we are, and know that we belong.
Our SAY family is always there…Under One Moon.
