As summer ’16 rolled into The Realm, we realized that every minute matters. Coming into our last summer as campers, we wanted to leave an impact on the younger girls. We want them to remember the Scribes of 2016 as an energetic and positive group. Our Scribe summer left us feeling excited and anxious that our camper careers were coming to an end. Being here since Tumblers we have always looked up to the Scribes and awaited our turn to lead girls camp, but once we arrived at our final summer we wish that we could go back to being the 9-year-old girls that entered The Realm together in 2009. As Tumblers we never thought that we would have to think about our Scribe speeches and our final days as campers. Now that this time has come around we are overwhelmed with the thought of no longer being campers, but excited with the idea of giving other girls the opportunity that we got for eight years. We want them to understand how amazing this place is and make sure that they don’t waste a minute.
We have been part-time counselors by aiding with different age-groups in the afternoon to understand the responsibility it takes to be a counselor. We have lead camp fires where we have sung countless songs and taught cheers. We led an all-girls camp crazy dress up day.
With the summer speeding to an end we realize how much camp has changed our lives and helped us grow into the people we are today. We would not trade anything for our experience as campers and we could not imagine a summer where we are not with our best friends at our favorite place on earth.
