2016 Camp Video:
Congratulations to Aaron Hammick, Rachel Lopez, Justin Robinson, and Phillyscia Stanley for earning Camper of the Year!
Last week my group went swimming . If you don't know how to swim here, you can learn how. We also have underwater cameras that we can go under water with and take a picture with friends or by your self. We go swimming every week. but not every day. After lunch we go to the dorms and change into our bathing suits. For the girls, if you don't have a swimming cap you are not able to go in but it's okay because we have extra caps. If we run out you're more likely to not swim that day. The last time I went swimming we got paddle boards. I learned how to use it and it was fun with the help of the counselors and DeShayla. I learned so well I can now do laps with it. The times we go swimming we miss group activity and rest time for our trip, but it's worth it because we still have fun anyway. I went to the pool and my friends in my group Zahirah and Sapphire helped me learn how to push off so I know I am so close to swimming and overcoming my fears as well. Some staff members come and swim with us, so you can ask them to help you swim, and learn the first step, which is floating; But the best thing is that we all have fun doing it.
Next year at camp I am sure I will be able to swim without the paddle board. And I will overcome my fear of the water.
