Around the World - Week 4 - Bloggers

Periodically Camp Scully will be running a skill clinic which will incorporate blogging. It's a bit of an upgrade to our old-fashioned newspaper skill clinic. This week we have some biographers of the bloggers and 2 interviews with staff members. We hope you enjoy the read.

My name is Nasai and I’m a Green Grasshopper at camp. I think it is very fun at camp. My favorite food is pizza. My most favorite activity at camp is going swimming.

My name is Megan Vankempen and I’m in the oldest girl cabin. I’m 14. I’ve been coming to Camp Scully since I was 7 or 8 years old. I come back every year because camp helps me grow as a person and it gets me away from my city for a little while and I met some really cool people. My favorite color is purple and my favorite animals are pigs and hedgehogs. I like sports, making bracelets, eating, cartoons and shopping. I love camps food and the activities and all the staff.

My name is Dawn Harns, I am 14 years old and I go to high school. I have been coming to Camp Scully for 5 years. I love coming to camp because I get to meet new people and see old friends that I have made from past years. My favorite color is blue and my favorite animals are seals and penguins. I like to sing, draw, write, play sports, play the flute and read manga and comics.
