Reeling in the Years: Summer Camp Edition
As summer is only around the corner and the school year comes to a close, here at Citywise we are gearing up and ready to go for what we hope to be an amazing summer! In this week’s segment of ‘Reeling in the Years: Summer Camp Edition,' we took the time to sit down with two young leaders, who have both taken part in their fair share of summer camps, as they told us their favourite aspects of Summer Camps over the years.
Caoilfhionn has been a member of Citywise for a number of years. She has noticed that a lot of things have changed over the years, from different ESC volunteers to new members, to even the paint in the art room! One thing she has noted that has always remained consistent however, is the fun she has every time she enters Citywise. All those years ago, Caoilfhionn came to take part in our afterschool group, Grenoble & Hamburg, on a Thursday from 4.30pm to 6.30pm, with her friends. Little did she know back then what her Citywise journey would entail. To date, she has taken part in numerous summer camps, a variety of different programmes, lots and lots of fun activity days, while also engaging in our leadership programme on a weekly basis!
“The thing I enjoyed most about Citywise Summer Camps was getting to do new activities each day. When arriving in Citywise at 9.30am, I knew I was bound to try new and exciting activities, the kind I had never encountered before. I loved how different all the activities were.”
“I enjoyed being able to meet new people and make new friends. Some days we might have done art or another day we might have done STEM. I had so much fun there and really enjoyed it. Every day in Citywise is ALWAYS different.“
