Maria Miller is a CYO Girls Camper with a passion for camp and a sweet personality.
I met up with Maria, her cabin-mates, and counselors on August 7th at CYO Girls Camp. It was a hot, sticky day (some would say uncharacteristically so this summer). It was hot, but Maria and her cabin mates were in good spirits as they tackled the task of cooking campfire chili for lunch on the beach.
Q: Maria, I’ve heard you’ve been to CYO camp a few times now. How long have you been coming to camp?
A: A couple of years, and this is my second time this summer. I love it.
Q: What are your favorite activities at Girls Camp?
A: I love to play gaga ball. Another game I really like is nucome. You play it over a volleyball net but it has different rules. I like that you can play with a little or a lot of people and no one is really left out.
My third favorite is Arts and Crafts. Lanyards are fun to do anywhere when you have free time.
Q: Where do you go to school and what grade are you in?
A: I go to Linden Middle School. I’m going into 8th grade.
Q: So what do you like most about coming to camp?
A: All the fun I have and the friends I make. I try and invite other friends to come to camp but they are too busy so I just come alone. I like making new friends.
Q: How does camp change you?
A: I know I am getting closer to God.
Q: So what’s something that you’ve learned at camp that you can take home with you?
A: That I’m getting closer to God and that it doesn’t matter what people think of you, it only matters what God thinks. I am more confident.
Q: Do you think you’ll come back next summer?
A: I really want to and I hope I can.
Q: What’s something that you will tell another girl about CYO Camp that’s never been to camp before?
A: That’s it’s a lot of fun and the counselors are really there for you. You get to do a lot of cool things and make friends.
