“I was nine years old when John took this picture.  I arrived at Taylor Camp when I was three—just about to turn four. My dad and my sister were still on the Big Island and I remember hitchhiking with my mom and arriving at Taylor Camp and walking into the camp the first time and me being really excited.  I was like, ‘Wow, there's tree houses and the beach’, and people were friendly to us, really welcoming.  I remember Mom said, ‘I think we'll live here’, and I was so excited and really happy.  It looked like a really fun, cool place to live and there were a lot of a really neat people there."

“I have such sweet, fond memories of playing on the beach and playing in the jungle. My sister and I would go ‘visiting’ and we would go from house to house and there would always be something going on, from a card game to people playing music, to making food, or crafts from batik to candle making to sewing and stuff like that.  So, that was really fun.”
