Camp Aldersgate has always been a place where I feel comfortable to try new things and to be myself. Over the past five years, I have made new friendships that I know will last a lifetime. There are many aspects of camp that encourage me to return each year, such as the strong sense of community and having an outlet to express myself. At camp, I can be creative and learn new ideas, while having fun. When I am at camp, I feel the most connected to God, nature, and the people around me. Thinking back to my favorite memories, camp always comes to mind.
