2. What is your favorite activity?: Riflery

3. How has camp changed you?: Camp has made me more open and accepting.

4. What's your favorite camp food?: My favorite camp food is the Oreo pie. It's delicious!

5. What is your best camp memory?:  My best camp memory was Kaos with all my friends, shoving shaving cream in everyone's faces. Or even when everyone starts spontaneously singing.

7. What do you love most about Camp Sloane?: I love making friends with everyone and how close you get with your tent mates and counselors.

8. What advice would you give to someone coming to camp for the first time?: Just be yourself. No one here judges you. And bring bug spray and bug bite stuff. And never forget! Drink lots of sunscreen and put on lots of water!

9. How would you describe Sloane in one word? And why?: Accepting. I chose accepting because everyone here at Sloane are friendly and accepting no matter where you come from or what your past is. Sloane lets you be you.

4. How has camp changed you?: I'm more independent. I've also learned many new things.

5. What's your favorite camp food?: Meatball subs!
