Hey guys, it’s been a while, but I am finally back in the UK after spending the last three months in America. This summer has flown by and I can’t quite believe it’s almost over.
Back in January, when I first applied for Camp America, I don’t think I quite realised what i’d set myself up for, nor did I think I would actually do it. Yet here we are, seven months later and I can actually say I completed it. How insane is that?
When I arrived in the US, I had no idea what to expect. To begin with, I will be honest, I hated it. Two weeks in and I was ready to quit. I’d decided it wasn’t for me and instead of giving it a try, I wanted to leave. But, I am so happy I gave it a chance, i’m glad I stuck it out.
Camp America has been the best experience of my life, a summer I will truly never forget. It has challenged me ridiculous amounts, but it has also made me realise that the best things in life don’t always occur inside your comfort zone. Life is about taking risks, doing things that you wouldn’t usually do and this summer was just that.
For the first time in a long time I feel genuinely happy. I feel ready to tackle each day as it comes and take more chances. This summer may have given me amazing memories, beautiful friendships and a killer sweet tooth. But more so, it has given me a new perspective on life.
If any of you are considering Camp America I would highly recommend it. On top of this first inital post, I will be doing several others, charting my time in America, over the next few weeks. Including an insight on life at camp, my highlights from post camp travel and my top tips on how to survive a summer camp.
Bye for now.
