dotting its surface. The sun shines its rays down on top of the buildings and people. The day is
warm and comfortable. A perfect first day for summer camp. The kids streamed into the school
and into the main stage where we were having our morning camp meeting. Some of them had
come to camp before and excitedly hurried over to talk with old friends. There were first timers
that walked timidly to the closest seat, scouting out the other people in the auditorium. Ms.
Nelson, our wonderful camp director read the rules and introduced the teachers, their assistants,
as well as the interns. Then it was time for classes to begin!
In creative writing, we only had a couple of students, but that didn’t stop us from having
a load of fun. For the introduction, every person had to say their name, why they liked creative
writing, and their favorite sandwich or food. Afterwards we played a game. Even though we had
some trouble figuring out which game to play, by the time we had one figured out we were all
comfortable, laughing, and having a good time. Which, overall, is the whole point of camp. To
have a good time even when things don’t go according to plan.
