As my parents and I sit and wait for my “travel buddies” to arrive, I think to myself “what have I gotten myself into?”
What if I don’t fit in with our group? What if the kids at the camp don’t like me? How will i survive without my parents for 6 weeks?
Then I speak to the AYF members who were there at 3 am to make sure we are okay and I realize all the nervousness is probably for nothing. We’re in this together and all the changes and new things we will experience will be together.
I’m not worried anymore. Maybe a little sleepy, but not worried.
