Swimming, chess and culinary arts are my favorite activities. This is my first year at Camp Junior, and in the past, I was in the Friendly Towns program. I like how lively the camp is and how I meet so many people – it’s a great place to come to get out of the city and take a break. You meet new people, learn new things and get to try things you have never done before.Elicia, 14, Camper
My favorite part of camp is learning to swim! I am super happy I came to camp this year. I want to come back next year, and someday I hope to become a CIT and counselor!Kashmier, 12, Camper
As a CIT, I’m proud of the patience I’ve developed. I’ve learned to take a step back and understand everyone’s feelings. Good leaders know how to be there for campers. I hope everyone can have this experience – it’s nice to get time in nature to reset and meet new people. You become a family here – it makes you want to come back every year.Maranely , 16, Counselor-in-Training
As a CIT, I have learned so many things, and being away from home, I have gained so much responsibility. The campers help make it such a great experience – the younger kids have a lot of energy and are very competitive. I love the opportunities that The Fresh Air Fund gives – a lot of kids in my neighborhood don’t get to have a job like this or be in a place like this. Same thing for the kids – I know this is a great opportunity for them to be at a place like this.Angel, 16, Counselor-in-Training
