Returning Staff 2013: Notes to Friends

April 19, 2013

In the run up to Summer 2013 – just a few short months away now, we asked some of your favorite counselors to tell us what they have been up to over the Winter and what they are looking forward to most in the Summer ahead. Here’s what they had to say.

ALEX FANG:
Yo CTT! I don’t know about you guys but I could not be more excited for this summer. Life’s been fun in Orlando. Mickey Mouse says hi, but all I can do now is count down the days until I see some old faces, some new faces, and some faces of some counselors I have not seen in a long time that I know we will all love. Before you know it, we’ll be sitting down for campfires and skits and the White team will be well on their way to another Color War victory. Can anyone say White Elmer’s Fun Glue? We’re just around the corner and I can’t wait to get my blog and B-2 Hockey on. See you soon!

JAMIE ALLOY:
I am very much looking forward to this summer and seeing so many familiar faces as well as new ones. Since last summer I have been studying visual arts at Temple University in Philadelphia. After learning so much here at school I hope to share with CTT campers new projects and fun things to do. Can’t wait to work in the art shack again with all the creative campers!

NICK WHIMS:
Every time I see a photo from last summer, I get even more excited to see all of you again this year and just a little nostalgic for campfires! The Polar Bear and I will do our best to make CTT 2013 just as memorable. (barring anymore power cuts!)

ERIN SMEDLEY:
I’ve always considered CTT my second (or even preferred) home and, though many of my friends have outgrown camp, I refuse to spend a summer away from the Blue Ridge Mountains. This will be my second summer as a counselor and my tenth overall. Although CTT does offer the entire spectrum of possible summer camp activities, it is the people that bring me back. It doesn’t matter how weird you are because everyone is just as strange, but we’re a family and we welcome everyone! Currently, I am graduating from high school and will be playing soccer at Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland in the fall with the intention of continuing to participate in theatre and pursuing my English/creative writing major.

SAM FRIEDMAN:
Hey Everybody!
As my freshman year of college wraps up, all I can think about is getting back to camp. I’m excited about seeing old friends as well as making new ones, and looking forward to another Blue team victory of course! Have a great rest of the spring and I can’t wait to see you all soon.

ALBERT ORIOL:
Albert here! I’m super excited for summer 2013. This will be my 11th year at camp. 6 as a camper and 5 as a counselor. What have I been up to outside of camp you may ask? Well, I’ve been making some cool videos and I’ve been uploading them to vimeo… other than that, I’ve been pretty busy with University. I’m really looking forward to seeing you all this summer. And remember, sign up for soccer!
