Camp is a four-letter word where I'm working. The kids are not "campers," they are "scholars." The staff refers to the "residential high school summer enrichment program." We provide mandatory convocations and a diverse film series.
So basically, it's nerd camp.
I attended as a junior in high school and began working last summer. It's not a bad gig - there's always someone around to practice French, to make me laugh, to intimidate me with his vast lexicon... A learning experience.
In addition to RAing, I'm considering career options, researching internships and jobs in the US and abroad. Why did I purchase an LSAT study guide? And why haven't I learned Chinese yet?
Also, I have created a summer (read: hopeful) reading list.
