The kids left, but it was a rainy closing day so it went a lot faster (which is nice for tired counsellors). The most exciting part of my day though, is that my old friends came up for the weekend! I actually don’t know how to explain the excitement I have to see them. Getting to talk with my one friend was so wonderful already. It’s like a reunion from my past. There is something beautiful that you share with old camp friends. The experiences you’ve been through together and the specialness of “camp” in general are just unique. I feel lucky to have those kinds of friends, and those experiences.

Today I was able to move into camp and meet people. It was really nice to see some of my old friends in particular. However, there are is a significantly large amount of new staff, so names is hard. I find that this time around I’m much more relaxed with meeting people. I don’t feel like I have to know everyone, so I’m not super worried about it. The ones I’ve met have been super cool though. I also like my co.
We also did a campfire tonight. It included s’mores with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I do not have words to describe my thoughts.

Today I ran around trying to get things figured out for camp. Mainly my police check. This also resulted in me getting a significant amount of highway driving practice in addition to realizing that Google Maps lied to me.
Strangely, when I looked up the address on my computer for where I had to go, it sent me somewhere really far away (resulting in highway driving. I had no choice). It was good because I survived. It was not good because it was inaccurate. My phone corrected me when I pulled over in a random mall to figure out what was going on. Needless to say, I was able to find it and get the police check. Yay! I can officially work now. Also, I know that I can probably pass my highway drivers test when I get around to taking it.
