Meet Rachel, this is her first year at Future Stars Camps and she has had quite a variety of experiences this summer.

Farah:   Hi Rachel, welcome to Future Stars!  When did you start here?

Rachel:  Last week was my first week. I have a brother but he’s not here, he’s at sleep away camp.

Farah: What camp are you in this week?

Rachel:  Adventure camp and then  I will be at Diving.

Farah: What have you been up to at Adventure camp?

Rachel: We went to boundless ropes course, we went kayaking and hiking. The third day, we went to Rockin’ Jump and Bowlmor. The day after, we went surfing and it was so hard, I fell off the board but it was my first time.

Farah: What is your favorite part of this week?

Rachel: I liked everything but my favorite was kayaking. Before we got under the bridge me and my friend, Peyton had to get towed because we got tired. It was so fun!

Farah:  What are you most looking forward to this summer?

Rachel: I was most looking forward to Rockin’ Jump because I love jumping on the trampoline! We mostly just jumped but we also did a jousting game where you have to fight each other.

Farah:   Do you have a favorite counselor? Why is he/she your favorite?

Rachel: I don’t have a favorite, I like them all!

Farah:   Is there someone that you look up to or admire in sports?

Rachel: Lebron James and Steph Curry. I love basketball and they are 2 of the best players.

Farah:  What are your hobbies?

Rachel: I play basketball and tennis through the winter.

Farah: What is the best part of being a kid?

Rachel: You get away with most anything, you get more candy, your parents let you do whatever you want, if you cry about it, and you still have a lot of years to live.

Farah:  What grade are you in? What do you most enjoy about school?

Rachel: I’m going into 5th, I would say I like math because it’s challenging but it’s fun to figure the math problems out.

Farah:  What do you want to be when you grow up?

Rachel: I want to be a doctor or a surgeon.

Farah:  What is your favorite memory from camp?

Rachel: Learning how to do a front flip!

Farah:  Well, it sounds like you’ve had a rockin’ summer, it was nice meeting you Rachel and thanks for spending time with me.
