Surprises at Camp Manito-wish
What surprised me the most about Camp Manito-wish was how open I was to new people and new situations. Camp Manito-wish is different from the life I am used to, yet being a part of camp made me feel like I was a part of a community. The whole place radiated positive energy and I was surprised to learn how easily I opened up to my new Schuler family from Maine East. By the end of camp, I felt really comfortable with people I barely knew 10 days before.
The longer I was at camp the more I began to notice the small things about life that make it so amazing. I truly believe that trail went so well because of our Trail Leader, who did not just teach us how to survive in the “wild,” but made the whole experience one to remember. Overall, my experience at Camp Manito-wish has left me with so much more confidence for when I will be introduced to new people, ideas, and environments.
