My first at camp, I was very shy. However, I enjoyed camp a lot. I decided I would come back next summer. So I came back and I made tons of new friends. I began to love camp even more. I love the culture, how I get to meet people from all over the world. I like how camp welcomes everyone to the camp family. I enjoy the traditions, like Nancy Tucker’s performance, and Shabbat. I am not the most athletic person, but the sports are engaging and fun. Before I came to camp, I didn’t know how to dribble a basketball! Now, I can shoot hoops. Because of camp, Basketball is one of my hobbies. Color War is awesome! Breakout is cool and the Color War activities are a blast! I have grown bonds with all the kids in my bunk and if one thing’s for sure, I’m coming back until I’m an LIT!
