Summer Camp

For the past 8 years I have worked in a variety of jobs around the world. Among these have been opportunities in childcare of all types, and in one case (in 2007) summer camp in the USA.

For those unfamiliar with the tradition, parents like to send their kids to forested camps by lakes during the summer to get them out of the city and to have them interact with peers away from home. Though it is a nationwide thing, the majority of camps are found in the north east.

In 2007 I worked in Pennsylvania for three months and loved it. As such, when I decided to return to the USA for the summer, camp was a clear choice. After a lot of paperwork and stress, it has been arranged that I will be in Maine between early June and late August, working on a climbing wall. I hope to read in my free time and will update this as often as I can get internet, which may be rare.

Exams

As the end of my second semester in Canadian university comes to an end, I can look forward to a summer of adventure and freedom, and reflect on the craziness of the Winter Olympic Games coming to my home town! So far I have started slowly on the reading challenge, but I have a large collection of books at the ready, and will be determined during the summer to share every free moment with a book.

In September I will start my second year courses for my degree, and though this will likely take a chunk of my time, I hope the momentum I gather over the summer (despite distractions) will help me as I work toward 52 books in a year.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and I look forward to your input.
