First year at camp?

1994: I was 11 years old and it was the first year camp had showers!

What are you most excited about returning to camp for?

I know this sounds typical, but it is the utmost truth, the campers, the staff and diving off of the diving board.

What's something you're into right now?

I'm loving silkscreening... I kinda dream about it

Being a counsellor. Thoughts?

In the fall, after being a staff member at Ouareau, I was standing in line for the bank with a camp friend and somebody cut in front of us. I remember thinking "Do you know who I am... do you what I have done these past couple of months!" We politely asked him to move to the back of the line. I had gain so much confidence, I would have NEVER have done that if I hadn't worked at camp. That and the fact that my campers threw me a Happy none Birthday party during cabin clean up, best cabin clean up ever! (#campkidsarecool!)

Any last words?

When spring hits, campers, CITs, staff and crew can't help to start to get ready for camp! Some are anxious, others are excited and most a bit of both... One thing I know for sure, is that for me, every summer is unique, with a sprinkle of that familiar and ever exhilarating camp magic... How does Bymph do it?!
