Summer Camp Stories – Part 7

Posted on Oct 15, 2018

As I reflect upon my time here at Camp DeWolfe this summer, there have been many highs. For me, one of the greatest things has been the team of counselors that I have worked alongside this summer – their unending support and friendship has been such a blessing to me and I will always be grateful to them for that. 

All the children that were placed in my care this summer brought with them a variety of dynamic personalities, which meant there was never a dull moment each day. Living with and teaching them taught me the importance of having endless patience and enthusiasm, to maintain discipline and keep them entertained. 

I thoroughly enjoyed coaching ‘Street Hockey’ as one of my main activities this year. The kids in my team were motivated and many of them had played before and so were of a good skill level. Coaching this activity increased my leadership and planning skills. 

Overall, I have many memories from this summer and have grown a lot as an individual. The experiences I have had will be of great benefit to me in the future.
