Camper Updates

This summer got off to another great start.  The campers arrived a week and a half ago and everyone is adjusting to the camp routine well.  Academics are underway and every camper is working hard on their language skills.   In addition, many campers love the various outdoor activities in which they are participating.  Here are four reports provided by Andrew’s tutoring students.   

Malcolm thinks camp is really really fun.  He claims, “Outdoor pursuits is better than it was a couple of years ago.  You get to do more stuff instead of just one thing.”

Hunter has enjoyed camp and Wild Colorado.  He reports, “I liked hiking, canoeing, building a fire, building a shelter, shooting BB guns, and participating in a scavenger hunt.”  Also, he is currently reading Oliver Twist and likes it.  

David loves camp so far.  He states, “Overall, camp has been remarkable and entertaining.  Some of the activities have been new and interesting, but some are a bit repetitive.  However, that is just because I have been here for four years.  This year a new activity that I really like is Junior River Guides.  The reason for Junior River Guides this year is because the river is too high to kayak.  In this activity we learn how the Mild to Wild staff, the local river guide outfitter, works with their customers and trains their staff.  This week I am studying to get S.C.U.B.A. certified.”

Connor likes camp.  He says, “There are lots of fun activities in the afternoon.  For example, S.C.U.B.A. sounds like it is going to be very fun.  The rafting was good too.  The mornings are ok.  Art is fun and study hall is a good time to work and expand one’s knowledge.”
