Even Counselors get Campsick
Hi everybody! When I’m not at Adventure Camp, I’m usually in Montreal, the city where I go to school. You’d think it would be easy for me to forget about Mercersburg’s peaceful pastures and all the summer fun of Adventure Camp up here in the north, but I’m constantly reminiscing about these past summers! Whenever I find myself up high somewhere and my fear of heights kicks in (which happens pretty often), I always think back to the high ropes course we did with Teen Adventures at Cedar Ridge – I saw a lot of fearless campers that day, and I’ll never forget the way they inspired me to conquer my fears! That memory has definitely helped me to feel a little less weak in the knees when I’m more than two stories up.
I’ve been taking a lot of pictures lately, too, and every time I’m organizing them on my computer I come across the slideshow of awesome pictures everyone took in Digital Photography with me. Looking at those photos of Mercersburg in the summertime makes me a little camp-sick! Then there’s my bracelet from the affirmation circle at the end of the first session of Teen Adventures – my other two have fallen off, but I still have one left to remind me of all the great people I met. So all things considered, no matter how cold it gets or how busy I am, I don’t think I’ll ever forget the good times I had this summer. I hope everyone is having a good time back at school, and I hope to make some more memories with everyone next year!
