Session 1, Camp Loyaltown

It’s been a whirlwind two weeks but session one is finally coming to a close!I’m not going to lie it has been the most demanding two weeks of my life, working at Camp Loyaltown, but WOW this is the best job/time I’ve had in a long time. I came into camp knowing how hard it would be so its not too much of a shock but the long demanding hours make you completely exhausted and some of the behaviours campers experience can be unnerving. However, this is overshadowed dramatically when I see the campers I’m with laughing, smiling and having a great time. Whether they are swimming or just walking around a smile and a laugh is the best thing ever. I have definitely connected with the campers in my cabin, other campers that I have interacted with and especially my one-to-one camper. 

 
Disabilities is such a taboo topic to talk about but I have to say I love working with these people and I am learning a lot about different disabilities and how every disability is 100% not the same. I have met some amazing people from across the world and become great friends with a lot of people.

I definitely can’t wait for session two to start on Sunday.I had originally planned to blog a lot more but I barely have time to pee never mind write a blog twice a week. Of course it’s for an awesome reason though!
