The first summer I was at camp I was in Cabin 1. My two counselors were Eli and Ryan.
If you ask them what I was like in the beginning they would say that I was shy and homesick a lot. Now I bet they would say I am the loud girl who is always cheering in the Mess Hall with a smile!
This year my counselors were Becky, Emily and Lena. I loved having all three of them. They became my moms. From the Cabin 3 dog piles. To cuddle puddles, to girls camp dance parties, I have loved this summer more than any other.I want my counselor to know that they have done so much for me over the past three years.
Elie and Ryan were the two counselors who helped me through my homesickness. I owe so much to them. If my counselors had not shared the big hugs and kind words, I would not be as confident as I am today. I am so thankful for how much all of them have loved me.I wrote a poem called “Home” earlier in the summer. One of the things I said was, “I do not know what I would have done for my last three summers if I had not come to Forest Lake.” That is a true statement. Nothing can compare to the fun, joyful, happy, adventure filled memories of camp.
