Seven years ago, I went camping at El Capitan. I was only a fourth grader. Although I was only in fourth grade, camping wasn’t a new experience for me. I had been camping with OVS since Kindergarten.

Just this past week I had the chance to go camping with the fourth graders. Going back to El Capitan was great. The only difference was, this time I had to play the part of an adult and help the kids. But these kids did not need much help.

Unlike most kids, they loved to cook and clean and do everything themselves. When I offered to help, they almost always said no. All I really had to do was sit back and relax at the beach, just building sand castles and swimming all day long.
