Really make an effort to get to know people (both campers and staff), be inquisitive and ask a lot of questions.  Those who are interesting, are interested!  

Share one notable camp memory:

The Canadian with cabin Manor in 2000, with a group of exceptional young men (including Andy), that I consider friends to this day.  What an amazing experience.  I hope to do it again some day.
