Favorite all camp/special program to do at camp:
I love the play but I also really like Glen's Game. I tried SO hard my first year to get the climbing wall stamp and i finally got it and i was so proud of myself. Glen's game is super fun.

Earliest camp memory: Hmmmm that's a hard one. I would say being shown the basketball courts my first day as a camper by a counselor and just staring in awe of how many hoops there were.

If you had a super hero power, what would it be: Easy, Super Strength. I would say i would be superman but superman is every super power so that would be cheating the question.

Best Hanukkah present that you've ever gotten:
Maybe a skate board because at the time i thought i was going to go off and learn how to skate board but in the end i never did. Now there is just a skateboard laying around the house. Getting a playstation 2 was pretty awesome.

Preferred chicken nugget dip: Honey Mustard. ahh yeah
