Hey guys! So my last blog post about Camp Twitch and Shout was about making the decision to apply to the camp. This blog post is about what happened after that!
After I sent in my application, I had a phone interview. I was nervous during the phone interview and I was worried that it didn’t go well, but it turns out it really did go well! The nervousness and worrying apparently didn’t come out too much in the actual interview. I was glad about that!
After the phone interview, the waiting set in! I’ve never been a very patient person when it comes to waiting for good news or hearing about something I’m really looking forward to! But I was patient as there was really no alternative. I just had to wait to hear back from them!
After a lot of waiting, I got an e-mail from the new director of the camp, Mandy. The e-mail told me that the camp was offering me a counselor position for Camp Twitch and Shout this summer. Of course I e-mailed her back as soon as I read the e-mail and accepted!!! I was soooo excited and I don’t think I could really put my excitement into words.
Now means more waiting though! Waiting to find out who my co-counselors are, waiting to find out what age and gender the kids in my cabin are, and waiting to actually go to camp! I hope that at least one other of my co-counselors has TS like me and I hope that I connect with at least a few of the counselors and form long-lasting relationships with both my fellow counselors and the campers!
I requested to be a counselor to a cabin of girls who are either in the younger group or the middle-age-range group. But really I can’t wait to meet my campers no matter what age or gender they are! I think this experience will be amazing no matter what age group or gender my campers are!
So for now, I’m waiting to find out about my cabin and co-counselors, and I’m counting down the days until camp (July 20!). I love checking the Camp Twitch and Shout Facebook groups that I’m a part of to see what people are talking about and to see updates about camp!
I also am gathering cool things to bring! I scoured my basement the other night and found a lot of neat things that could totally be costumes for camp theme days! I also bought these super cool lightweight balls that are fun to bounce around and play with which I will also bring to camp!
