What is your favorite thing to do at PALS with your roommate?

Our favorite thing at PALS was the trip to the beach, and we loved to draw pictures any chance we had!

What do you do to keep up with each other in between Camps?

Mary Beth and I live pretty far away from each other, so we send letters back and forth at least twice a month. I even sent her a photo book filled with pictures that we took together at Camp!

What advice can you give to new roommates to create amazing friendships like yours?

I would tell new roommates to open themselves up to each other! Support each other when you are feeling down, celebrate each others successes, and enjoy the time you have together at Camp because you never know when you’re going to have that time again.
