My story about Mountain Meadow Ranch Camp
By Kate Platte, White Hill Middle School, Grade 12
For me, Mountain Meadow Ranch Camp is my own secret oasis that I can use to escape my everyday life in exchange for an amazing three weeks. You’d never expect to forge such strong friendships during this time, but MMR proves this possible. The adventures are numerous, whether you’re more of a backpacker or a sculptor. This summer will be my fifth year at camp, and every year, I learn something new. Whether it is a new horseback riding skill or a new leap off the high jump, there seems to be no end to the possibilities at camp. But the most important thing I learned at MMR is Aj Ypekanbe, an Indian tradition that helps you live a more fruitful, selfless life. When I came back from camp, my mom said that she saw a change in me. She said that I was more secure with myself and I seemed to be "glowing" from the inside out. That really is the effect that MMR has on its campers. All year, I look forward to those fantastic, rewarding three weeks at the ranch. It really is the perfect paradise, nestled up in the Sierra Nevadas with nothing around except gorgeous mother nature. The small number of campers is definitely one of my favorite parts of MMR, because it really gives me more time to connect to the counselors. I don’t feel like just another number, which is how some larger sleep away camps can be. Instead, I get to become friends with everyone, and really feel like I belong.
