Gigi: Minute-to-Win-it games, which was the best Camper Council EVER (we ended up soaking Natalie with water guns)!

Lydia: When we attacked Natalie with water guns and drenched her in water!

Sarah: Natalie getting squirt gunned during Camper Council night and her pending revenge.

Betsy: Diving off the dock at the Aqua Tramp and our counselors grading us on a 1-10 scale, and “I got talent & that’s pretty good”, and I learned how to dive!
