I walk into the Party Barn, a huge barn that you can climb up the walls and rappel from the ceiling. I see all of these campers sitting on bleachers, just sitting non-nonchalantly like nothing is happening. Before you get all ‘Oh my gosh this girl is nervous about the first day of camp, WEIRD!’ I’ve been to this camp many many many times before this week at Camp Eagle. I’ve been going to Camp Eagle since I was born, so everyone knows me there. Well all of the staff do… …they treat me like family! I was just nervous this year because I had a bad experience last year at camp, last year the other girls didn’t really talk to me because I was the oldest and was shy. Anyways I go put my stuff down and dash over to my parents give them a quick hug and goodbye  then I head over to the bleachers taking a seat next to a girl with short black hair. “Hi! Are you Dani? Cause if you are then you’re in cabin, she exclaims very loudly in my ear. Yeah I’m Dani, nice to meet you.” I reply softly. ” REAGAN! What did I say about scaring away the other campers!” An adult says who I guess is a counselor. Reagan huffs and turns away to pout. ” Sorry about that, she’s just really ‘really’ loud, emphasizing on the 2nd really, I’m Lau… … HI! I’m Rachel, and I’m Claire!” 2 girls push Laura out of the way and yell their names at me. I giggle, ” Hi I’m Dani. Oh! I remember you! Your mom put on that race here a few weeks ago. I nod, “Get out of here! Anyways I’m Laura and I’m your counselor this week, and this is Sarah your other counselor.”A girl with blonde hair waves at us. Laura whispers into my ear,” do you happen to know a dance that we do here?” I nod. ” Ok so when you here the music come on start dancing!” I flinch, “sorry. It’s fine.” I reply.


After a while of catching up with old friends and meeting new ones the counselors come to tell us to sit down. I wave to my friends and go to my seat. The camp director, Blair, came out and introduced himself, explained rules, etc.. He then said something about counselors and right then and there some crazy music started playing! I get up out of my seat and started doing the choreographed moves with the bernie (my all time favorite dance move) and everyone was laughing having a great time.  That was the start of an amazing week!
