The End of a Summer in Camp USA

Its the end of the summer and Garrett Camp Counselling J1 experience has come to an end. Here he describes how he found coming back to Ireland after working as a Camp Counsellor in Camp Fairlee, Maryland for the summer.



Coming back to Ireland was difficult. I loved the US very much, they have a different culture, different views on religion, and different views on sexual orientation that challenged my own beliefs. I am coming back with a deep desire to travel and see the world. It opened my eyes. The friends that I’ve made from all around the world: England, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, the Netherlands; will be friends for life. We are already planning to travel together. I miss the American refill culture, all the soda! I miss the sunshine. I miss the campers. I miss the routine. There are a lot of things that I miss about camp. Perhaps I’ll go again!
