Sindy is working at a sleep-away camp this summer. Find out how she's liking her new job.

July 6, 2006

Well, I arrived safe and sound at camp last week and so far it's been a blast. It was a bit overwhelming for the first few days, getting to know everyone and sleeping in a strange bed - but now it feels like I've been here forever. I've made some great friends and all the kids I'm working with are so much fun!

When I first got here I had to go through an orientation where I learned about the different activities I would be teaching this summer. It looks like I'll mostly be focusing on arts and crafts and nature hikes, which is totally cool with me. Basically I'm getting paid to play and explore all summer - I can't think of a better summer job! I was worried that the kids were going to be complete brats, but my group has been really well-behaved. I have five kids that I'm in charge of at a time, so it's not too bad at all.

On top of my activity stations, I also have to help out in the kitchen once a week and join in on campfire sing-alongs at least one night a week. All the counselors (including me!) get one evening off a week and we can go watch movies in the main hall or spend some quiet time in our cabins or do pretty much anything else we'd like. It's pretty cool.

I honestly didn't think I was going to have this much fun. I knew it would be better than rollerskating around, delivering hamburgers to demanding people, but I wasn't expecting to get this into it. I've been hanging out a lot with this girl who's in the same cabin as me. Her name is Katie and she's from Florida. She's never been away from home for this long either so we've been helping each other through our homesickness. She's also into the drama scene at her school, so we've had a lot to talk about.

So far, there has been no real potential for a summer romance, but I'm pretty content with just doing my job and making new friends. Boys certainly aren't the most important thing in life... But I wouldn't be completely opposed to at least meeting some cute ones at some point! Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Hope you all are having a great summer so far. what you've been up to!

1Hi Sindy,
