During my practicum there were many lessons learned that had help me build a stronger foundation as a future social worker. But the most significant has to be the summer camp, the camp lasted about five days. In the camp, I had the chance to interact with the children and understand more about their background. Seen how each member interacted with one another and understand that rather been just group of children in a camp they see themselves as a family with a real connection. It was also a time where my patience and dedication to the social work profession was challenge. After the camp my dedication to the program grew, I want to be part of it even after graduation.
The camp was also a chance to learn on what it takes to keep a program running and the importance of knowing how to network in benefits of the clients. During camp, everything given to the children was completely free purchased by the program or were donated. Most of the food was donated, speakers donated their time to come to camp and talk to the children, and even a Chef came to camp ...

- Experience at Camp When life is perfect there is this feeling of overwhelming smiles. Like I want to scream or yell just because my life is so incredibly perfect. I felt this way the summer of 2002 at Lutherdale Bible Camp. But what is weird is that I don't know what makes it so perfect. Like what is the real difference from here to there. There I have this feeling of being so incredibly close to everything. As opposed to being to being in the real world, hearing and seeing what really goes on. When I was at camp I feel like I am really special.... [tags: Personal Narrative, Descriptive]

- When I was 7 years old my parents sent me away to summer camp for 3 weeks. Being away from them was tough. However, the great thing about the camp was that the camp was for children with physical disabilities just like me. During those 3 weeks we all got to be around others just like us. We were in a group of people who outside of this camp were the ones being left out. This did wonders for me socially. I found making friends was easier and began feeling more comfortable with who I was. The camp was great for me socially is that some of the people I was closest with kept in touch with me outside of camp.... [tags: Developmental psychology, Erik Erikson]

- The subject of my case study is a 16-year-old boy, John , who was interviewed and then observed while he attended a camp counselor-training event. During the meeting I observed his interactions during structured and unstructured events with other youth (9-13th grade) and the camp directors. Some background on John is that he has just finished his sophomore year at Cretin-Derham Hall, a Catholic private school in St. Paul. He is the middle child in a traditional family with a brother in 8th grade and one who just finished his freshman year of college.... [tags: Developmental psychology, Adolescence]

- Every summer since I can remember always included going to a Christian church camp with my friends. Each camp had a different age group that spanned from kindergarten to high school. It was a time where I could go and play with my friends, eat a different kind of cuisine that I practically never have, swim every day, canoe across a lake, and many other fun and exciting activities. I had always gone to church with my friends every summer, until my eighth grade year. This year was different from the other years.... [tags: Christianity, Mind, Thought, Christendom]

- I’m 10 years old and my parents just dropped me off at Camp Young Judaea for the first time. I’m nervous, but excited; my sister has been coming here for years, and I’ve heard so much about her friends and their shenanigans. I’m shy, but there are 20 other girls in my cabin; I’m sure that at least one of them will be my friend. The first day proves uneventful; I’ve made one friend who is self-proclaimed “weird” like me, but it’s already clear that the other girls are way more interested in makeup and boys than I’ll ever be....

- Grade 11 camp was an unforgettable experience which definitely tested my strength, both mentally and physically. In one of the many challenging activities, the cohort was split into different groups and each group was made to push an army truck down a road. We were given a break every 20 minutes, and I found it very satisfying to, even when on a ‘break’, encourage my peers and lead them through such a physically and mentally exhausting challenge. Other challenges involved us crawling through small, confined tunnels.... [tags: Engineering, Physics, Learning, Mathematics]

- My First Experience of Camp - Original Writing "AHHHHHHHHHH!" The cry of my fellow companion echoed throughout the musty wooden cabin. "A massive spider!" was the next shout from the top bunk of my bed. Disorientated, and still half asleep, I asked what the matter was. I fumbled for the compulsory torch we had been issued with and switched it on. There was no electricity in the cabin; the torch light cast weird shadows and created an eerie atmosphere. I got out of my sleeping bag to check on him.... [tags: Papers]

- Having spent the better part of six summers hiking, cooking, orienteering, and practicing archery on the trails of Huddart Park, California, summer camp became a very precious time of my life. When I entered high school, I began working as a Unit Aide at my camp which meant I had the privilege to now teach young girls a whole slew of tasks such as survival skills, first aid, and knife skills. While attending Woodside Priory High School, I heard about similar activities such as archery and overnights that Mountain Camp counselors hosted....

- As I opened the door to the barn, I could smell the strong scent of hay and I heard a horse whinny. As soon as I saw a tall horse more than twice the size of me, a twist of nervousness formed inside me and I wondered how I would ever be able to ride that thing. As the councillors from the “Horse Camp” put the sattles on the horses and handed us our helmets. (I later learned that my horses name was Bailey.) We all walked our horses out of the big scarlet coloured barn and attempted to put their feet in the stirrups and hop on.... [tags: Personal Experience]
