The campers grow up a lot. They might be nervous or shy at the beginning, but they start to reach out and stop missing home. They get brave – they bend more and they push themselves. I had a boy in my cabin who had never swam before and he was making excuses to not go in the lake. We worked with him and he eventually got into the lake and loved it. He was so happy that we encouraged him to try it.
