Members of the Arts and Media Training Activity blog about their favorite Camp PALS activities, their teams, advice for new campers, and more.

Rachel Danielsen

“My name is Rachel. I really like gymnastics, friends houses, sleepovers, music. I like going out for ice cream- my favorite food except for hot dogs! At camp I like bowling, I like to go to the beach, I like Arts and Media and dancing! Camp PALS is fun. And I enjoy being here at Camp PALS and Camp PALS rocks! I think Camp PALS is nothing but the best, I think it’s cool to be here. It’s easy to make friends here. I get very nervous sometimes, and if someone is it’s okay and you get over it really fast. Everyone’s very nice and helps you make friends.”

Samantha Cousins
Orange team

“I live in New Hampshire, like Hannah. Camp PALS is different from Tours because Tours is in Washington DC and Camp PALS is in Pennsylvania and California. I’ll go to PALS Tours when I turn 21. My favorite part about comin ghere is hearing my name on the speaker and getting to know my new counselor. This year her name is Clo and she lives in Chicago, Illinois. Courtney, my other counselor, we’ve known eachother for two years. Camp is special because you meet new people and old people. My favorite is meeting new friends and seeing other friends.”

Sarah Lancaster

“I come from Virginia. My favorite food is hamburgers and mac and cheese. I like to hang with friends. At camp I like to hang out with my counselor, her name is Lily. I like to play soccer, my first time was at Camp PALS. I like it because it was my first time playing it here.”

I met her last year and now we’re friends because of camp! I was nervous to come back and my hands were a little shakey, but not any more! It’s awesome, I’m a good bowler, my triple average is 400. I like to see my counselor, Jess. We’re on the orange team like Sam. We are the orange goldfish!

"Hello!" from head photographer AJ Abelman

 Hi Everyone! My name is AJ and I’m thrilled to be heading up the amazing professional photography team at camp this year, helping document all the fun we’re having this week!

   In addition to capturing campers and counselors at their best, part of my job this year is co-leading a new training activity called “Arts and Media.” The sixteen campers participating in this activity will meet three times this week, helping put together a Camp PALS 2012 scrapbook that will be available for veiwing during closing ceremonies. Arts and Media participants will each also have a chance to be a “guest blogger” on the Camp PALS blog, telling all of cyber space about themselves and their time here at camp!
