The summer after my freshman year in college, I decided I needed to branch out. I had only ventured a whole 10 miles away from home for college and I was feeling like I needed to prove I could be away from home. So I applied to be a camp counselor at a summer camp in Minnesota where I taught water skiing and tennis. It was really fun – the lake we were on was so huge and busy that some days I was scared to cross it for fear we’d get run over by way bigger boats! And the feeling of getting a kid up on water skis for the first time is amazing and their faces are priceless!
So I’m dusting off my camp counselor boots this fall and teaching a four day craft camp for kids ages 8 to 12 at our local community center. I’m really excited! So if you know any kids that age in the north Dublin area, tell them they have to come hang out with me for the week!
