I just got back from camp! I loved it, and am very happy I got to be part of something so cool and exciting.
I haven't gotten to teach drama in a while, and I got to teach at Camp Bingle in the Harding Lake area last week. What an honor and a privilege.
This week was called M.A.D.D. camp, for Music, Art, Drama, Dance; and the kids got to choose from 8 different electives. I had the pleasure of teaching both of the drama classes.
I saw a moose up close and personal, slept for a wee bit each night, and got to love on about 20 teens.
I hate how shy I am! You'd think I'd be over it by now. I'm 40! But stick me in a casual hang-out social setting and I'm pathetic. I can click into confident mode when I teach, but have a very difficult time getting over my shyness during meal time or hang out time. I'd like to not have this issue, but that's just the way I function. I'm better than I used to be...
The most difficult part of the camp was the work-out. The camp is built on the hills surrounding Harding Lake, and everywhere you go is either up or down. You go to the shower house up-hill, then go back to your cabin down-hill. Then go to breakfast down-hill, then back up to your cabin. Then the class I taught first was further up-hill... I think you get the idea.
My calves are pretty impressive after one week. I'm curious to know what an entire summer would have done to my legs... =)
And so it goes.
