Cabin Mates

When you come to camp for the first time, it’s a little scary because there are so many people.  But by the end of camp everyone is like family, especially your cabin mates.  You are with your cabin mates all your years at camp, and they truly become your sisters along with everyone else.  The great thing about having Christian Scientists your own age is that they understand what you are going through. It’s so nice to come back to the people you love.  It’s also great to know you are not alone when it comes to Christian Science.  Camp is probably one of my absolute favorite places to be, because of all the great things you gain from it and the AMAZING people here.

Waterskiing is my favorite thing to do ever!  Especially at camp.  The water, for starters, is so pretty and clear and like an aqua blue.  It’s gorgeous!  But besides the water, the skiing is amazing too.  I learned how to knee-board, wake-board, and slolom ski all here at camp Kohahna.  I am now currently working on my advanced level.  On the last morning ski, Billy taught me how to jump the wake on a wake board.  It’s so fun and Billy’s a really good teacher, and he really knows what he’s doing when it comes to wake-boarding.  I mean he is a sponsored wake-boarder after all.  I love wake-boarding but my favorite thing to do is slaloming!  It is so exhilarating, cutting the edge of the ski and flying across the wake!  There’s no feeling like it in the world.  But there is no way I’d be able to do this without the help of the Kohahna waterskiing staff.  They help you improve so much!  They encourage and teach you everything you need to know to be an awesome waterskiier.  Thanks KOH waterskiing staff.  I love all of you!

Camp Food

Camp food is AMAZING!  We have food from all over the world.  Some of my favorites are the chicken chunks and taco days. Also they have the best desserts.  Like mamaspatch and this one oreo pudding pie…oh my gosh, I love it!  Sometimes for cabin days the kitchen staff lets us bake cookies or cupcakes in the ginormous bakery.  It’s so fun.

Flag Trip

I loved a lot of things about the flag trip we went on this summer.  It is so fun to defend your teams’ flag by tackling everybody you see, or get a flag on a stealth raid.  The love involved is also really great. Whenever you get tackled and caught, the person who tackled you helps you up and says “good raid” or “that was great, maybe you’ll get a flag next time”. It is just so heartwarming. Then after everybody is tired out you can have s’mores while telling what happened around a nice, warm welcoming fire.  That is what I love about the flag trip.

The flag trip was fun because of the tackling, raiding and guarding. I tackled a 6th grader. It was also cool because I had really good camouflage. Grayson and Tommy thought I was a bush! I did not get a flag, but I was close.

Cabin Day

For our cabin day we went to the beach.  We jumped off a dune.  It was awesome.  We also had ice cream.  I had a cup cake.  We played foot balloon too.  Then we came back to camp.
