Sojourner 2011, How have you changed?

Reflecting on this video I realize that it brings the summer full circle. One of the first videos I made this summer after interviewing staff was also “How have you changed?”.

Sojourner 2011 Pictures

This week was a whirlwind of activities and I must have been there to photograph about three of them. I’m disappointed that I wasn’t able to capture more, but these at least give an idea of all the crazy fun that was had.

Both the camper’s and Read More >

Voyager 2011, Favorite Camp Songs (upbeat)

My favorite part of everyday here at camp is fireside and jumpstart. For one, singing camp songs is an excuse to be silly, not caring what other people think. Then the motions are incredibly fun and slightly ridiculous. Doing this together in a group breaks down barriers and provides the way for a shared experience Read More >
