Summer of 2019 was my first year at poyntelle. I made so many friends who I thought I would never talk to again but really, there my best friends!! I’m constantly talking to them. Even though it was G3 and G4 we were still always together. Living with these girls made me look at the world from a different perspective. Camp is not just you waking up and doing a few activities with people that you don’t know, it’s waking up to a new adventure with people who are almost like your family. Weather you and 2 others from your bunk are at play rehearsal and the rest of the bunks are at the waterfront, you also get close to the kids in the play with you. Hayden is 2 or 3 years older then me but during all camp free play we would meet up. I’m very excited to get back to camp for summer of 2021!!! 260 days (that’s how excited I am)
