Today’s post is from Gianna B. who attended Camp Tapawingo in Maine. Check out her submission on why camp is so great!
“My best memory at camp It was my first year at a new camp and I was very nervous to meet my bunk, but when I got to my bunk immediately I got to know my bunkmates and they were all so nice to me. The next day we had our swim test and when I was getting tired my bunk mate motivated me into finishing it and later that day I was feeling home sick and my bunkmate comforted me and when my friend had to be sent home all my bunkmates comforted me. I actually have a few memories one being when I first got to know one of my best friends and when she got back from her 6 day trip and getting to spend time with her later that day. Another memory that will stay with me is when I got on a horse for the first time. And although I had to leave I will never forget my first year at Tapawingo.”
