Reeling in the Years: Summer Camp Edition

This week we spoke to one of our young leaders, Sarah, who gave us an insight into what it has been like to grow up in Citywise over the years. Take a look and see what she had to say about her experience.


“My name is Sarah, and I am currently in 3rd year. I began my journey through Citywise Summer Camps at the age of 9. I was quite shy when I started my first summer camp, I was just so nervous. I knew very little people and I was afraid that I would struggle to make new friends all on my own. I soon realised this was the silliest fear I could ever have imagined.”

“All of the amazing leaders were so kind and helped me make lots of new friends instantly. I shouldn’t forget the other lovely members of the summer camps and how caring they were all towards me. This is an experience I will never forget.”


“During my time as a member of the camps, Lauren was my very first leader. She was so fun and enthusiastic, and I soon realised this was a common trait in all of the Citywise leaders. This enthusiasm is what made waking up and going to camp even better than I could have ever imagined.”


“Every Monday morning saw a new exciting week begin. I loved Monday’s as it meant I was bound to meet many new faces. I was meeting new leaders each week; this was my favourite part about the camps. I was meeting new role models on a weekly basis, each one I individually aspired to be like in the future.”
