The mountainous terrain coming down from Stiles Falls towards the zipline and the front of camp always reminds me of the time a group of day campers made it all the way to the real falls. I can’t help but smile when thinking about the beauty of the valley that Alta Mons lies in. This is why my favorite thing about summer camp is being surrounded by nature. It reminds me what is important and helps me find my way. The way that nature brings people together at camp is especially memorable. My first year as a counselor the backpacking trip got rained on every day that we were there and we came back laughing and bonded because of the experience. I can’t wait to be surrounded by nature again and to feel close to nature, people, and God. This feeling is my favorite thing about summer camp.
Yours in mountainous love,
