My Story about SportsKids Camp at San Domenico
By Hannah Kaye, grade 9, San Domenico School
Each year, parents make decisions on sending their kids to a summer camp, leaving the happiness of their children up to strangers that say they will take care of them. It’s not easy investing all your trust in someone else, but sending your kid to a summer camp creates an atmosphere where kids can express themselves without being judged.
San Domenico has lots of different camps—from Art, Hip Hop, Theatre, Writing and Boat Building. There are also many different Sports camps including Swimming, Tennis, Basketball, Flag Football and more. These camps have role models that kids can look up to, and offer opportunities to explore nature and create lasting friendships.
I interviewed my friend, Cate Olrich, who attended the San Domenico SportsKids Camp and had a memorable experience. Her mom first signed her up, and at the time she was a shy fifth grader, not knowing who else was going to be there. On the first day of camp, all she saw were unfamiliar faces on kids who stood there awkwardly, each kid avoiding the next. But by the end of that first day full of team sports, bonding activities, and being outside with a group of kids who were in the same situation as she was, she felt comfortable in this new environment. Even though she came in not knowing anyone, she never felt like she was isolated from the rest of the kids. As the week went on, she made strong friendships and bonds with her counselors and coaches with whom she still talks to. She told me that at the end of every day, they would jump into the cold pool, and she would be overcome with joy as she was surrounded by a camp—full of new friends.
