LIFELONG LEARNING & LEADERSHIP
Ryan in 2015
When I was young, I would go to camp at the Y almost every day during the summer while my parents worked. I loved playing games in the woods, making different crafts, and of course, swimming in the pool. I had fun every day, but I also learned many valuable life-skills. At camp, I learned the importance of community and gained many friends, some of whom I still talk to on a daily basis. I also developed leadership skills which have helped me achieve leadership positions in many of my extracurricular activities. However, the core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, Responsibility, and Faith may be some of the most important things I gained through camp and have helped me succeed in life. When I got old enough, I became a CIT and now I am a counselor. I chose to be counselor because I had a wonderful time at camp and have benefitted so much through my camp experience that I want to give other kids the same opportunities I had. I use each day at camp to learn and grow.
