Maddy Adkins Summer Camp Intern: What is your favorite moment from the internship?

What is your favorite moment from the internship?My favorite moments this summer have included being able to bring my dog Bentley to camps. The kids always love being to interact with a live animal, and my dog absolutely loves kids. Bentley shows them all of his tricks and often dressed up based on the theme of the week in which he appears. For example, for the Mythical Tales camp, Bentley dressed up as a dragon for the kids!

Maddy Adkins Summer Camp Intern: What does play mean to you?

What does play mean to you? Share about your favorite play memory as a childPlay is when someone is given the opportunity to explore, imagine, and let loose completely dictated by what they want to do. My favorite memory of play as a child was exploring my grandparent’s garden, which surrounded the playhouse they built for me as their first grandchild. My childhood playhouse is one of my fondest memories of play.
