Summer Job Begins…

Hey all. I have now been up at camp for about a week and everything is in full swing. The campers arrive on Wednesday so everyone is working hard to get the camp up and ready for opening day.  My days have been filled with CPR/AED training and physical labor (hanging banners, moving trunks, etc.). 

Readjusting to living in Maine again has been fairly easy. I am only about an hour from the Bates campus so in some ways I feel like I never left. It has been awesome catching up with the other counselors. I have known many of them for years and it is great to be able to see them again and pick up from where we left off. The staff at Winona comes from all over the world so it is really cool to be able to chat with counselors about the cultural, social, and political differences between our respective countries. Already I have had conversations with staff from Sweden, Australia, Ireland, England, and Colombia. Being exposed to so many people from different countries reminds me of Bates where I have met so many great people from all over the world.

The fun will continue in the next couple days and soon the campers will arrive. Until then I will continue to enjoy my down time and will hang out with the other counselors, play pick-up games of basketball and soccer, swim in the lake, and run. I took some great pictures looking out over beautiful Moose Pond. Unfortunately the internet at camp is not allowing me to upload them but I will get them up as soon as possible. Until next time…
