Hey, Summer Campers!
Did you know that there are millions upon millions upon millions of kids—just like you—who go to summer camp every year? Considering that, it’s really not that surprising to see that so many of our favorite celebrities themselves have attended summer camps when they were your age.
Read up on your favorite celebrities. Maybe they even went to the same summer camp that you’re attending! How cool would it be to know that you’re going to the same camp as Lisa Loeb, or maybe even the great and powerful Oz himself—James Franco.
Well, if any of you are planning on spending your summer at URJ Henry S. Jacobs Camp in Utica, Mississippi, then you’ll be attending the same summer camp as Snow White—or American actress, Ginnifer Goodwin who plays Snow White on TV.
Run by the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ), Henry S. Jacobs Camp has been giving kids from all around the Deep South a great summer camp experience since 1970. This camp’s goal is to help its campers develop some new skills, realize some things about themselves as well as the community around them. It looks like it did some good for Ms. Goodwin.
Probably known best for her roles in Mona Lisa Smile, and He’s Just Not That into You, Ginnifer currently plays the lead role of Mary Margaret Blanchard (a.k.a. Snow White) in the television series, Once Upon a Time on ABC. She also played Aunt Bea in the great water balloon scene from Ramona and Beezus which is based on the Ramona novels by Beverly Cleary.
Ginnifer didn’t really start her career until after college. She graduated from Boston University’s College of Fine Arts with a Bachelor’s in Acting. Dedication, patience, and a bit of summer camp took Ginnifer a long way. How will your summer camp experience help shape you?
