How Are We Old Enough for This?

Dear Tripp Lake Families,

Today as we participated in Friday Evening Services, a time to reflect on the week, our friendships, and our lives, seven Seniors gave us something from their hearts we wanted to share with all of you.  Today will be the first of seven blogs.  We know you will enjoy these as much as we did today. Happy 4th of July weekend!

How are we old enough for this?

How am I old enough to be in 1AB?

Ever since I was 9 years old as a JR1 in 18A, I always looked up to the older campers as the leaders of camp.  As I worked my way up the bunk circle, I realized how much of an impact camp has had on me and how it has shaped me into the person I am today.  Now, sitting in a bunk circle during cookouts, wearing 1AB clothing around camp, and living with my 18 best friends it has finally hit me that this is my last summer in the Promised Land.  After spending 9 incredible summers here, it saddens me to ask myself, “How am I old enough for this?”

As we stand here today looking our at all of you, we’re still wondering how we’re old enough for this.
