My Camp America Experience

My Camp America Experience

Author -  Beth Cochrane

Unreal to think of being away from New Zealand for a month. 

Stepping off the bus and hitting the soil of Hackettstown with a bunch of different faces can be overwhelming. But as soon as the first arrival day hit at camp I knew what the word overwhelming meant.

A whole week of preparation was out the window because nothing could prepare us for the emotional ride of being a counsellor at a special need camp. 

Within a month of being at camp it is safe to say that having three different campers all with different needs has been an amazing experience I will never forget. Camp has bought many friends and memories that have changed me in this short time of my life. I would never change the beginning of this summer for anything.
