Having flown from Northern Ireland, being a part of the staff at Camp DeWolfe has been a new experience for me. I have enjoyed getting to meet amazing people, building new friendships and experiencing American cultures through daily routines on site. During my time here, I have been given the opportunity to learn new skills that I have attained through the various programs they run here at camp, in which I have gotten to use during camp activities. I have experienced a lot of the natural setting here at Camp DeWolfe, through constantly being out in the fresh air, through activities that take...
