Every summer I go to Muscular Dystrophy (MDA) camp for a week. I like it but I have always wanted to go to a camp like my brother gets to go to. This summer I also went to Camp Howe. It is a normal camp and it is near Amherst, MA. The day before I went to camp, me and my mom went to visit the Emily Dickinson’s house and I got a book of her poems. It was very cool. I wrote a paper about her once.
I liked Camp Howe. I did things I have never done before, like I climbed rock wall all the way to the top. I was scared so I brought my stuffed animal raccoon named Jasper, up with me. I did the giant’s ladder and the high ropes course. I was a little scared about going up on these but I was really scared about coming down. But you do have to go down. At Camp Howe I took part in the talent show and I sang “Tomorrow” from the musical Annie and everyone loved it.
I will still go to MDA camp every year because I like it and I have friends there but now I will also go to Camp Howe where it is not all about my disability. I have to get ready for my horseback riding class now, so I have to go.
