Best Moments from Starshine (these girls will be CIT’s in 2017!):

What is one moment at camp you will never forget?

Sofia: On our canoe trip, all 8 of us were in one tent and we had a great time bonding.  We stayed up late and had a blast!

Sam: Putting 8 people in a 6 person tent on our canoe trip!  This made us bond, laugh, and most importantly, make memories that will last a lifetime!

Amelia: When we were on our canoe trip and we all fit into one tent.  This way we got closer as a cabin!

Kelly: On our canoe trip this year, we fit all 8 of us in one tent and we talked all night.  We also took a lot of photos that we can look through forever.

Paula: On our canoe trip we did a photoshoot and stayed up late talking and telling stories.

Valentina: I will never forget our canoe trip; we got to know each other, worked as a team to put our tents up, had a lot of fun in the lake, and told stories.  It was a great canoe trip!

Cayley: I will never forget our canoe trip when we all shared a tent and told funny stories by the campfire.

Molly: We took a full on photo shoot on our canoe trip and seriously took 1000 pictures!  It was the best canoe trip ever!

What is something adventurous you did this summer?

Sofia: Ropes course – we did some pretty extreme stuff!

Sam: Trying lots of new things and learning from both good and bad experiences.

Amelia: At Ropes Course I did all of the different activities that were scary at first, but ended up being tons of fun!

Kelly: When we went to the Ropes Course, we did the “human slingshot” and it was scary, but I did it!

Paula: At Ropes Course, I challenged myself to try things I never thought I could do, and in the end I did them!

Valentina: Ropes Course was an amazing experience because we got to do things that we can’t do anywhere else.

Cayley: We did a lot of challenging activities at the Ropes Course, and it was a lot of fun.

Molly: When we went to the Ropes Course, I was pulled up over 20 feet off the ground and then launched like a human slingshot.

What is something for which you are most proud?

Sofia: Learning to ski and sail.

Sam: Making new friends outside of my cabin that will no doubt be friends for life.

Amelia: I swam 245 laps in lap swim and got to go to Cathy’s!

Kelly: Finishing my laps for lap swim and getting to go to Cathy’s with my friends.

Paula: Trying to pass so many levels and for trying riding for the first time.

Valentina: I am proud of going on the “human slingshot”.  I am very afraid of heights, but I still got on and did it!

Cayley: I signed up for sailing 3rd session after not doing it for many years, and I loved it!  I passed a few levels in Riflery.

Molly: I passed out of swimming lessons this year; it took 5 years to do it, but I did it!  I went on all of the challenges at the Ropes Course, and I am afraid of heights, so doing everything really pushed me.

What is something you learned about yourself?

Sofia: Never give up and keep on trying; you are always going to have obstacles in life that you have to overcome.

Sam: I love my best friends so much that it is hard to describe!

Amelia: I am determined to pass my levels in all my activities and I love trying new things.

Kelly: I learned that nothing is impossible if I try my best and keep persevering.

Paula: That it is never too late to try something new and that to accomplish something, you need to keep trying no matter how many times you fall.

Valentina: I learned that if I try my best and push myself to my limit, I can accomplish anything (even if I am afraid at first).

Cayley: To never give up and try new things because you will regret it if you don’t.

Molly: I will never take my friends for granted because I know that we would do anything for each other.  I also work well with people to try new things and not get discouraged.
