Exeter Summer session 2018 is coming to a close and with it, the opportunity for new experiences. Although the last four weeks have been filled with fun and different activities, the summer is almost over, so we asked students what were things that they hadn’t done – but still wanted to do before camp ended.
Keily Hernandez, a 15 year-old girl from Puerto Rico, went blank. She wasn’t sure what to say. “I don’t know… to have fun? Make the most of my time here before I have to go back.” Since Keily lives in Puerto Rico and only comes to the U.S. to visit. “I want to… have fun new memories on all the trips that we have.” Keily then explained how she wanted to be with her friends on this journey and make the most of the trips that were off campus. She then fell silent again, lost in thought. “I also wanna see ‘Mamma Mia.’ Oh! And have a movie night in our dorm.” She just wants to watch movies with her friends and visit new places.
Ashley Castellanos, 16, from Boston, also fell silent for moment, not quite sure what to say, before finally coming out with: “Spend time with the people that I care about. Have fun on the last few days we have left. I also wanna get mozzarella sticks.” After a while she just emphasized the fact that she wanted to be with her friends as much as possible since soon they won’t be able to spend as much time together.
Anna Whitney, 15, just wanted to do one thing before camp was over. She simply said, “You know what I wanna do, I wanna play like a really good game of cards with anyone who is willing to play.” So, if anyone out there is looking to play a really fun and good game of cards before time runs out, here is your chance.
Even though the summer session is sadly coming to an end, there are still many opportunities for anyone who wants to try new things at Exeter summer. You could go for a swim in the pool during open hours just for fun, or go visit the lake with your friends and walk along the docks as you admire what Exeter town has to offer. There are many other things you can try, if you only open yourself to the experience.
