The fact that [Camp Noah] brought a whole lot of partners
together to work on something also increases resiliency. It says you can
partner and work together even if you don't all have the same beliefs and you
don't all agree all the time. In this type of situation, you can come together
and work together and make something great happen. –Community stakeholder
