Erica B., Age 8
Tribe of Benjamin

First day smMy first day of camp was greeted by my tribe leaders. When I got to my cabin, everyone in my tribe was making name tags. I made a name tag, too. I wrote my name in turquoise because it is my favorite color. After, we heard the whistle blow. That meant it was dinner time. My tribe and I all walked really fast down the hill together. We sat down as tribes and found out it was Utensil Night! My utensil was a pie-server. A girl in my tribe named Elizabeth got tongs. I could barely eat anything with the pie cutter so I asked for another utensil. This was my first time at summer camp and I was already having so much fun. After dinner, all the tribes made their degelim (flags). We had to compete for the aqua degel and we got it! Benjamin’s symbol is a wolf. We all helped make the background, and Sophia drew the wolf. I drew a tree next to the wolf but that’s not the end of it yet. After we made our degel, we went back to our cabins and got our toothbrushes, toothpaste, and went to bed.
