“I honestly love camp, I swore I would not become a cheesy camp leader who spends their year away from camp thinking about it but it honestly feels like a family and even when I am stressed, tired and feeling down all I have to do is walk (or jog normally) up the drive and everyone is around and smiling, high fiving me so it's just the best place!”
