Reflections of a Summer Cabin Leader
LOOKING BACK AT MANY SUMMERS WELL SPENT...
– by Aidan Sullivan Sandy
Fast forward to this past summer, when I was a Summer Cabin Leader, it was the exact same story. With high school in my rearview mirror and the ‘real world’ approaching fast, the beginning of the summer was a nerve wracking time of uncertainty. However, that feeling did not last long. I was not only once again welcomed in by the community that I loved, but I was given the opportunity to welcome a new generation of campers as a cabin leader. Being a cabin leader allowed me to connect with my faith, and with the entire camp community in a way that strengthened me spiritually. And gave me the necessary tools to tackle my leap into the uncharted waters of post secondary education.
This past summer on staff was an exciting, challenging, and very rewarding experience. I am very thankful for the community I have at Pioneer and for the opportunity to serve the next generation of rambunctious campers like my younger self.
