    It was three days into his stay at sleepaway camp that it happened. He had been going to Camp B’nei Torah, a Jewish sleepaway camp in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. He loved everything about that camp. The campers, the counselors, the activities, the meals, and much more. But despite all this, absolutely nothing could prepare Peter Vent for the day he was about to have. It was the summer before ninth grade, and when he returned home, he would go to high school.

He had no idea that he would enter high school for the first time as a hero. At home, Vent has some great friends.…

The last year you are eligible to come, the summer before your sophomore year, you stay in a cabin off the main camp called Cabin 12, which holds great significance due to the fact that you’re the oldest on campus, and closer to a counselor then a camper. Being engaged, on time to activities, and having extreme enthusiasm to an almost unbearable point. I was exposed to a…

Everest in both a simulation and in real life you really depend on your team to do what is necessary to reach a goal. This could be a simple personal goal (such as the photographer to stay at camp 1 and 2 an extra night) or a larger goal that is shared by multiple people on the team (the leader and marathoner’s goal of reaching the summit). Our team had achievements and failures,…

Through his time at camp, Lance picked up various nicknames,…

    Everywhere I looked there were crying ten-year-olds. Boy, was I panicked. Year after year I had grown accustomed to my daily routine at camp, but this year was different.

    you’re surrounded by grounders. They are dressed in their head-to-toe covering battle gear, carrying bows, arrows, and spears.
