I myself have been volunteering since I was nine.  Currently, I’m fourteen years old and have spent two of my years volunteering at the Adams County Arts Council.  The ACAC has been the happiest and welcoming environment to be working in.  I have had many different chances to meet all kinds of people that live in our community.  The many varieties of instructors makes each and every one camp special and unique.  All of the campers just give me a big fat smile on my face when I see their creativity flowing out.  Also, the students have taught me just as much as the instructors would’ve.  One of my favorite camps to help out in is the cooking camps.  The cooking camps get the campers really involved and interested in what they are doing.  I have also had lots of fun in many different art classes, one especially that ended with a “dance party.” It was so fun to watch the students show their moves to the song “What does the Fox say?”  As me being an insider, I can tell you that the the Adams County Arts Council is just the best place to have your kids (or maybe yourself) involved in the many activities offered.
