Good friends Grace, age 11 and Rosina, age 10 were recently interviewed about the Rye Y’s Discovery Camp. Grace is returning for her second year at camp; Rosina is looking forward to her first experience with the Rye Y.
Q: Grace, what are you looking forward to at camp?
G: Making new friends, the activities and some of the trips.
Q: What were you nervous about when you first started camp last year?
G: I was nervous about being around different people. Because in past camps, I was around people I knew.
Q: After one week at camp, how did you feel, and why?
G: Awesome! Because I made a lot of friends. The activities were really fun. We played a lot of games and sports that included running and I love playing games like that.
Q: Tell me about the counselors.
G: The counselors were really fun. I remember that Sanjay would play the guitar during lunchtime and that was fun. A lot of the kids would crowd around to listen while they ate.
Q: Rosina, what are you looking forward to?
R: The activities, especially swimming. And trips. And maybe, new friends. And the sports.
Q: Is there anything you’re worried or nervous about?
R: Making new friends, not being alone. [Grace puts her arm around Rosina to assure her. “You have me.”]
Q: What do you think will be the best part of camp?
R: Probably making new friends and spending time with Grace.
Q: Grace, what advice do you have for Rosina?
G: Bring a lot of water and put a lot of ice cubes in it. When you dive deep in the water, plug your ears because if you don’t they’ll hurt a lot when you come back up. Cut your hair before summer because you have to wear a swim cap and it doesn’t hurt as much with shorter hair. On the first day, try to make a lot of friends, because it will be better for the rest of the summer. The camp is really fun and I think you’ll like the field trips too.
