Summer Adventures

Summer+Adventures

As the school year draws to a close and the warmth of summer begins to set in, excitement fills the air. Students are starting to talk about their plans for this long break, sharing their fun activities such as camping, going to the beach, or even days for just staying in bed. The hallways are filled with chatter about their summer adventures, some planning on visiting relatives, others just testing out new hobbies. The anticipation of freedom from homework and early mornings, makes everyone look forward to the long, bright days of summer and a chance to relax.

As the summer break begins, students get excited about their plans. Freshman Emily Burkholder shared, “At the end of July I go to church camp, with Mya, Izzy, Antril, Taylor, and Reagan. At camp I love going swimming, I’m going to a new one and I think they have golf carts. We go on the waterslides and always eat way too much food; I also love getting to hang out with our cabins.” Emily also mentioned her upcoming tryouts, saying, “I have club and school volleyball tryouts, one of my tryouts is during camp so I have to figure out which one I want to go to this summer.”

Sophomore Morgan Udy enjoys her summer a bit differently, saying, “During the summer, I love going over to my lake house for swimming, jet skiing, or even just getting to go out and tan. I also go to Young Life camp, and I like getting to get closer with everyone and all my friends there.”

Sophomore Sabine Kenney describes her love for the quieter side of summer, stating, “I like reading during the summer, like sitting out on the deck, with my sunglasses, just reading a good book you know. It makes me really enjoy the time that I have, that I don’t usually have during the school year. I also just like to spend time alone and just getting to go to bed early or taking a really long shower, and just taking time to do stuff, that’s what I really like about summer.”

As the summer break begins, students get to think about what their plans will be. Some may be going out on vacations, going to camps, or even just staying at home. Either way, students will experience the joys of summer, and create memories that will lead them to the school year ahead.
