In His Own Words: Marco, Camper

I was in the Senior Boys Cabin, and I was the oldest camper at camp this year. I'm writing to give you a camper's perspective.

First of all, I want to say straight up that as a third year camper, I still enjoyed camp a lot, so much that I will return for my fourth summer in 2013. As you might know, a lot of things happen at camp--we were non-stop! This means there wasn't much time to rest.

We enjoyed Wilson's Creek with the waterfalls. Each time we went it was a completely different experience because there was a totally different group of campers. The hike was always a bit of a pain...but it's a "fun" pain! We talk on the hike, and it's always a good time. It's truly amazing how many different subjects you can talk about in a 30-minute hike!

On Thursdays we had skit nights, which was always pretty funny!! For the final skit night people danced and sang and improvised humorous things about the campers and staff. For comic relief, Olson, Armand, Donagh, and I did the "Cinnamon Challenge." It wasn't very pleasant, but nevertheless, it was fun, and I was told it was hilarious to watch.

I really enjoyed my time at one of the camper's homes, where on a few occasions we went to Lake James to go waterskiing, wakeboarding, tubing, kayaking, paddle boarding, and swimming. That was so nice of them to open their home to all of us at camp.

Another favorite at camp were our weekly campfires (hmm...s'mores) and camping out in tents around the fire...late nights for sure...

I hope you enjoyed hearing about the activities from a veteran camper, who plans to return for my 4th summer next year. Who will be joining me?
