Recapping my summer

I'm home...and home is good, but im kinda wondering if im going to survive here for the next 3 weeks. Camp was amazing...and the friends i got there are great. i learned a ton about God, about me, about working with other ppl, and so many other things. Its definitely and experience that i will draw from for the rest of my life. Let me give you a quick run down of my summer. I got to camp at the end of may. I found i was living in a very small trailer with 10 other girls...it wasn't the most exciting part of the summer, but we all soon became great friends and had a ton of fun. Our first week of campers was a junior week (3rd to 6th grade). It was a really good first week for us to get acclamated to camp life. I missed most of the third week to go to Chicago area for Amber's wedding. We had so much fun, and of course how much fun can you have without a little bit of drama?? I returned to camp for the first teen week, and started to get back into the swing of things. By the end of the week, I had a pretty good handle on everything. I started the second teen week like any other...but thats about the only part of the week that was normal. During dinner, the camp program director (also my old youth director) walked up to me and started to tell me how camp staff had to be flexible. I just kept filling the water pitchers i was filling until the words "and this week you'll be conselling" came out of his mouth. I didn't know the procedures, jobs, or expectations of being a counselor. I immediately left and went to get ready for this crazy week. It turned out to be a good week. At least i survived. :-) well i gotta go for a little bit but i'll keep recapping soon
