Name: Paola

Section: Juniors

1. How many years have you been coming to camp?: This is my third year at Camp Sloane. It will not be my last!

2. What is your favorite activity?: This is hard… I love Archery and Rockband, but I'll have to say Improv. There are so many fun activities and games in Improv, and I always make hilarious memories. (The counselors also rock).

3. Why do you keep coming back to Sloane?: The people and activities are an obvius answer, but I also love the independence. I can do whatever I want activity-wise, and I don't need to walk everywhere with adults. It makes me feel mature.

4. How has camp changed you?: I feel like I am a more mature person. I used to blurt out awkward questions and freak out over spiders. Now, I am the official daddy-long-legs exterminator! I have to check the shower stalls and the bunks for everyone!

5. What's your favorite camp food?: Marshmallow Mateys!

6. What is your best camp memory?: It was my first year and I got a little lost with some other campers coming back from the lake… eventually we stumbled upon Hammock Haven and a counselor found us and brought us back. The whole thing was funny and proved to be a great bonding experience!

7. What 3 things would you never come to camp without?: Bug spray, a journal, and a hairbrush.

8. What do you love most about Camp Sloane?: I love being able to try new things. I got to go fishing today, and in the past I tried playing drums and guitar. I even learned archery! It is so great to experience all these new things.

9. What advice would you give to someone coming to camp for the first time?: Trust everyone. Your counselors are here t help you and support you. They are some of the awesomest people you will ever meet and they just want you to have a good time. Plus, they have great advice. Everyone here is a family.

10. How would you describe Sloane in one word? And why?:  Adventure. You get to try new things, meet new people, try new food, learn new things, and live outdoors. The Camp Sloane journey is one of the best adventures I've had.
