One of the most common things that counselors say on their final evaluation is that they never expected to get so close to the other counselors. Camp offers a rather rare opportunity these days in that you actually get to live, work and play with the same people! It’s kind of like being in a tribe. With less time glued to your phone, and more time to get to know other people (and yourself), and with so much common experience, funny moments to laugh about, you can’t help but grow closer to the people around you. A real community based on friendship!
Here’s some of my favorite friendship quotes and pictures from this summer:
“A friend is someone who reaches for your hand, but touches your heart.” – Kathleen Grove
“A friend is someone who knows all about you and STILL likes you.” – unknown
“A friend hears the song of my heart and sings it to me when my memory fails.”
