    Ipperwash Beach has been my home away from home for as long as I can remember. Some of my earliest memories include getting thrown off the inner tube into waves so big they could swallow me whole, campfires that my grandfather would build rain or shine, just so we could get that perfect bedtime treat and a sun burning so bright I thought the sweet summer would never end. As far as I was concerned, Ipperwash Beach was a magical place that couldn’t do any wrong.

    moment I was at home, getting ready to leave my house for my final day as a camp counselor and for the final day in Willow Grove Day camp’s sixty-two year history. I threw on my staff shirt and mesh shorts, grabbed a quick chocolate chip granola bar for the road, lathered up my SPF 30 lotion, compiled my backpack and waited for my ride. The drive to camp was an emotional one for me. I had spent fifteen of my eighteen summers at this camp, the same camp, that has thrived for over six decades.…

Being engaged, on time to activities, and having extreme enthusiasm to an almost unbearable point. I was exposed to a…
