AP Lang Summer Reading Letter

Pack your bags, it’s YoungLife Camp

“It’s going to be the best week of your life!” I was told numerous times before the day finally came for me to pack my bags and head to Crooked Creek Ranch- a YoungLife Camp in Fraser, Colorado this summer.

I could hardly think of the best day of my life, let alone the best week, but I remained open-minded to the idea that this could quite possibly be the best week ever.

Realizations from Romania: Mission trip opens eyes, teaches gratefulness

Summer: a time for heading to the beach, soaking up some sun, going on vacations, and getting away from school for a couple of months.
