Supporter Spotlight: Julie Schwanekamp

Julie Schwanekamp is one of our longest-standing and most dedicated volunteers.  Julie has been volunteering at the Yellow Bus Summer Camp for about six years now.  This past summer, she volunteered the vast majority of the days at Camp, focusing on Group 1 (the 5-7 year-old campers). 

Julie has proved to be an invaluable volunteer.  She is knowledgeable, passionate, and responsible, and she always knows the right way to relate to and work with children in a given situation.  She helps out in the classroom and on field trips in several ways and is happy to do whatever the staff needs. 

When asked about her interest and dedication to the Camp, Julie said that she loves working with the kids.  “They are fun to be around, and I love to see them grow,”  Julie said.  She also emphasized the importance of the Camp in providing “a fun and safe” place for children experiencing homelessness. 

Thank you so much to Julie and the other fantastic volunteers that made our Camp possible this year!
