Best Moments from Sunrise

What is one moment at camp you will never forget?

Emily: Making sand castles at the waterfront!

Lauren: Sailing for the first time.

Libby: When I made Sophia, Jenny, and Ceci cry.  I started hugging them and they broke into tears.

Ximena: Being hyper and running laps around the cabin with Amelia. It was super fun laughing and running all around the cabin!

Amelia: Having loads of energy and running laps around the cabin until we grew tired.  Those were the good times!

Becky: My first day at camp!  I remember Sofia (my counselor) shouting my name and 5 minutes later telling me to go to the cabin, but in that moment, I forgot who she was!  I also won’t forget Claire telling me to put my pajamas on, and I didn’t understand what she was saying.  It was SO cool!

What is something adventurous you did this past summer?

Emily: I tried new things.

Lauren: When I went with Farm Zoo to Lost Lake at Towering Pines.

Libby: I soloed a canoe for the first time.

Ximena: Passing my level in water-skiing – I didn’t think I could do it!

Amelia: This summer I tried 2 new activities (tennis and riflery).  Both of them are now my favorite activities!

Becky: Getting to canoe across the lake was something new for me.  Rachel, Elena, and I were singing during the entire trip.  Sleeping outside in the woods was amazing!  And, I ate s’mores for the first time (they were delicious)!

What is something for which you are most proud?

Emily: I am proud of passing a level in archery when it was my first time shooting.

Lauren: I passed out of Level 4 in swimming lessons.

Libby: Passing levels in activities and trying new things.

Ximena: Making new friends, passing out of swimming lessons, and passing levels in other activities.  I also make others have a great summer!

Amelia: Learning to take 2 minute showers – it really comes in handy!

Becky: I did a lot of new things this summer!  I shot a gun for the first time, I learned how to ride, I knee-boarded for the first time, I improved a lot in gymnastics, and I made a lot of new friends!

What is something you learned about yourself?

Emily W: I am a good shooter and swimmer.

Lauren: I am braver than I thought!

Libby: I usually don’t give up when trying new things.

Ximena: That I can do everything I put my mind to and achieve it no matter what.  I think that is AMAZING!

Amelia: I learned that I don’t have to be perfect.  All that matters is that I try and believe in myself.

Becky: I realized that my way to run is so weird, but it makes me run faster!
