Week 5 Camper Articles – 2010

Cabin:  Evergreen

This is my first year at Camp Kohahna. I really enjoy the delicious feed and the fun activities! This week I was in swimming and kayaking. I really like all of the things that we do in swimming. This week we worked on passing levels and having fun! We got to go to the clay pits and play in the soft and mushy clay. Also we went to Pyramid Point and on the way we looked for Petoskey stones.  In kayaking we got to pass levels.  I passed beginner.  Then we got to have fun!  We got to stand up in our kayaks and goof around.  Both of the counselors/teachers that showed me how to do these things were fun and very nice.  They made my week so much fun!  The food here at camp is amazing.  The people here always make sure that you get enough to eat.  My favorite thing for breakfast is bacon.  Then my favorite meal for lunch is a turkey with cheese sandwich.  Bur for dinner I don’t have a favorite dish.  At camp you have to learn to have very good manners, no elbows on the table and napkins in your lap.  I ♥ Camp Kohahna!

I’m from Florida and I like sports and at camp I have a lot of fun. I like going to the clay pits. My cabin mates are Sidney, Peyton, Aina and Gloria. My counselors are Jewelle and Lindsay. I’m going to be having a new cabin mate and I’m working on orderliness.

The horses are fun to ride and to play with. I like to give them a bath. Horseback riding is my favorite activity because I get to be outside with the horses.  For my beginner level, I learned the body parts of the horse.  I also went on a trail ride and my horse, Tommy, trotted a little bit!  He is a fun horse.  The horseback riding counselors teach you a lot and are very nice.  They help me learn how to tighten my rein, how to keep the horse going and how to go in circles.  Horseback riding is the best activity ever!

I love camp.  This is my second year.  Last year, my first year, my dad signed me up for horseback riding but noted that I had a fear of horses. So the first day of horseback riding I did not get on the horse.  The second day I finally got on but didn’t ride. For the rest of the week I did not ride.  When I got home I told my dad and he told me that error is just trying to stop me from having fun.  I thought about that for the rest of the year and it helped me in a lot of things this year. When I came back, the first day of horseback riding I groomed and tacked Mamaspatch (one of my favorite horses).  When we were in the ring I got on on my first try and started to ride.  It felt so great, so than you dad for that thought!
