Hopping off the plane and realizing after traveling for about 27 hours and finally here. Wow! Day dreaming for some time of what summer would be like; I didn’t realize how amazing it would be. Let me take you back to the beginning.
I heard all about summer camps from friends that had been before and I had thought long and hard, praying if I should try it out. God challenged me to get out of my comfort zone and go for it. I fully trusted Him, giving everything over and watching as God revealed Himself to me throughout this Journey.
I Arrived stripped with nothing but God and myself, going into the unknown. I found my way onto the bus with all the English Camp De Wolfe staff, instantly sharing stories and getting to know one another. I didn’t realize at this point these people would become my family and long life friends.
All filing out of the Camp De Wolfe van, unpacking our luggage, feeling exhausted but excited to see what this summer had installed for us at the same time. We continued onto our next day at camp where the America staff arrives… they were great! Staff training then started and I learnt many new things. I got the privilege of training as a life guard and spent my summer life guarding at the Sound and the pool… Also earning myself an awesome TAN!!
Soon after, the first, second and third camp passed by, time really does fly by when you’re having fun! I have many good memories of being a counselor at Camp DeWolfe 2014, such as trying new things, learning new skills, being inspired, making new friends and most importantly learning more about God.
I am so thankful for all the fun, friends and experiences I’ve had this summer. I really don’t want to leave but I’ll hopefully be back next year. So till then.. Goodbye for now.
