Summer Camp York, England

9th August 2019

How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard!

Yesterday was the last day of session 3 and everyone was filled with mixed emotions. As the sun rose in the morning, the campers head off to their last programme-specific activities, like Slip and Slide in adventures and a big Quiz for the English campers. Horse riding had an important competition and our golfers had their final practice, their improvements have been amazing! Performing arts spent the morning rehearsing and Creative Arts added their final touches to their latest creations.

After lunch, the whole camp went to the theater to see the Performing Arts show, and what a fantastic show! Their story was based on the inhabitants of a care center and how they plan their escape while remembering their past, a show full of amazing music, talent and emotion!

Once the show was over, campers had some time to pack their last belongings into their suitcases and then we went to the theater for our last 3PM meeting. With no time to spare, we went straight to the football pitch to watch the football match between campers and counsellors. Although it rained during the game both of the teams fought very hard and kicked that ball like Beckham. Finally, after an intense game the Campers had the upper hand and managed to win the match 9-8. Congratulations!

Finally, we enjoyed our last BBQ and everyone dressed up for the evening programme. Awards Night is an all-Camp activity in which campers get awards from their counsellors for their outstanding skills in each programme and colour. We also enjoyed some lively slideshows with the highlights of camp. To end this bittersweet day, we went for a last dance at the disco and let our hearts beat to the rhythm of the music.

All good things must come to an end. There were a lot of tears last night, but that only means that we had an amazing time at camp, and a time worthy to be remembered. May all the good memory's warm our hearts, we hope to see all of you next year again and wish you a safe travel back home!
