Hot!  Hot!  Hot!  I love it!  It has been my first camp of the summer for years and I always love returning to it.  Although it is hot, the support staff makes sure there is plenty of water and Gatorade available.  I love that the chow hall is so close, so we can make quick transitions to break from class and it’s not a long walk back to the dorms to start prepping for the next class or resting up.  There are plenty of trees and little corners to separate from main area to teach classes with minimal distractions.  Bring sunscreen and drink a lot of water.
