How do you stay busy from September-May?
I am a sophomore at Harvard University, studying History and Arabic. My favorite things to do during the school year are trying out new restaurants in Cambridge/Boston (let me know if you have any suggestions!) and doing work with an undergraduate political organization to bring awesome guest speakers to Harvard.
How long have you been involved with Warren?
I was a camper for six glorious summers, with three snowy winter camps and a couple of family camps mixed in. I have worked as a counselor for three summers.
What activities are you involved in?
Athletics, Boating, Sailing, and Paddle Sports are definitely some of my favorites.
What age group do you work with?
One of the great things about camp is that I have the privilege of working with campers from all age groups in my activities. There is nothing more fun as a camper than finding an older or younger buddy to play kickball or sail with. I have been a cabin counselor for Long Border girls (14-16 years old) and Intermediates, but I will always have a special place in my heart for the youngest Cubbies, because their time at camp is filled with new discoveries, questions, and lots of coloring time.
What is one piece of advice you would give a first year camper?
You only get to be at camp for a few weeks a year, so jump right in, learn the songs, and don't worry about looking silly because we all do. Also, DON'T FORGET CHAPSTICK!!!!!!
Favorite camp song?
Rolling Over the Billows FOR SURE because it gets you movin' and groovin'.
Favorite all camp game?
I love when we play all-camp medic because it gets everyone together at one of my favorite spots - the athletic field.
Favorite Camp Counselor moment:
Chatting with campers while walking across the anthill between activities. It's a great time to get to know people in your activities and have some more relaxed conversations.
Anything else we should know about?
There will come a point where you may have to pick between being bitten by mosquitos at a campfire or being too hot in your pants and sweatshirt, so be ready to make that tough decision.
