Hello everyone! My name is Edwin Hernandez. I am from Pachuca, Hidalgo,Mexico, studying a degree in marketing at the Universidad Autónoma del Estado de Hidalgo.
I cannot wait to visit America this year and work at Coppercreek Camp. Next year I will go exchange to Europe or Asia. Also after I graduate I hope to get a scholarship to study a master’s degree abroad.
In my spare time I like listening to music, playing video games or hanging out with friends. I also like sports like soccer, Crossfit and ride bikes or running in the woods. I also can cook an awesome hamburger!
This is my first trip out of the country and also the first time I’ll be at a summer camp. I hope this will be a great experience with all of you and especially fun. I’m pretty excited to meet you all see soon.
Dear Whomever This Letter May Concern,
Camp rocks! Or, more specifically, TREK rocks! This year I got to go to third session for the first time. It was weird not knowing everybody for the first few days, but everyone was really nice and fun to be around. It was a session full of firsts for me because it was my first time on TREK too!
We had a lot of fun in the caves, but it was hard work. We had to crawl through crevices only a foot off the ground! But it was worth it to see all of the shimmery rocks above our heads. They would glitter like gold and silver. I remember even seeing some blue in some parts. Caving also made me appreciate simple things like being able to stand up without hitting my head!
After caving we went back to camp for both a break and the dance. The real exciting part was being able to eat without cooking ourselves. I’m not saying TREK food was bad, but you try giving a bunch of 14 year olds cooking responsibilities for a week. It doesn’t end well.
The next week we went backpacking and river rafting but I’m running out of paper so all I can tell you is that it was a TON of fun and worth every hour left unslept. I’m so excited to come back next year!
Thank you and goodbye.
Christmas Eve 2008 at Coppercreek Camp!
Thank You For Camp
