Our Favorite Things

Hi! I’m Emily and these are my top 5 favorite things about camp:

  1. The barn animals and horses
  2. Doing art at the art barn
  3. Science experiments at the Interbarn
  4. The people in my cabinside
  5. Writing letters from camp

Those are all my favorite things. Now I will tell you what I’ve been up to and what I plan on doing.

Two days ago I went on a Nature Ninja Warrior overnight. We got to do parkour and film a little show called “High Trails Ninja Warrior.” I have a four day, nine mile backpacking trip coming up. I also have a horse overnight soon-ish. Hopefully, everything goes well! -Emily H.
