From the mouth of Orion

July 8th, 2024

Hi my name is Ellie and my name is Torryn and we are older zodiac campers in cabin Orion!

Two days after we got to camp we were told we had to go on trip and as we didn’t have the best experience last year, we were very anxious about it. We tried to get out of it, but soon after we realized it wasn’t going to happen. We spoke to the counsellors and trippers who were understanding and after talking it out, they made some accommodations to make us as comfortable as possible. While we weren’t initially happy about going on trip in the first week of camp, we had a lot of fun and made unforgettable memories with our cabin. We also developed a new perspective on trip and realized you can’t control what happens you can only control how you react to it. We went in with an open mind and ended up having a good time. So our message to any campers who are nervous about going on trip is to talk to your staff because they’re here to help you, be open minded and make the best of the situation!

Look how happy we are on our awesome canoe trip!!
