One Happy Camper

It has been one crazy summer so far, but I’m sad to see it come to a close. I have worked seven sessions of camp, four of them as a wrangler in the barn and three of them as a group counselor. The days are long, but the weeks fly by. I can’t believe I’ll be back in the classroom next month!

Camp has given me a memorable summer, to be sure. It is a time and a place where you can let out your inner dork– you can dress ridiculously and act like a kid without fear of being less popular. Silly has become the new cool, and I think that’s why CYO camp is  a great place for campers to have a blast. I know the counselors have a blast interacting with kids anyway… I’d like to think the campers have half as much fun :).

Regardless, spending my summer days laboring and messing around under the hot sun in the hills of Brown County has proved to become my most worthwhile summer in years. I enjoy interacting with all the campers and giving them the best camp experience I can. It is certainly a trying job, but a rewarding one as well. And when I am too exhausted to play another round of Frogger or sing the Kurt Song for the ten-millionth time, there’s always the horses to comfort me.
