I’m Sarah Tanner, and I first attended Camp Burgess in 5th grade for a school trip…

We went for three days and I absolutely fell in love! I begged my mom to sign me up that summer, but Camp Hayward was full, so the next summer we tried again. I was put on the waiting list and every night I wished to get to go and eventually I got in. I was 11-years-old and in love with Camp Hayward, I am now 14-years-old and still in love with Camp Hayward. I started going to Session 4 and I loved being a Mariner in M&P and having an amazing birthday at Camp, last year I went to Session 3 and was happy to participate with a cup song mash up at ALA. I have loved my counselors and cabin mates every year and I have made life-long friends in and out of that cabin. I am lucky to have found something I love so much. I am looking forward to attending Session 4 at Camp Hayward for the fourth time this summer and hopefully the many more summers to come!
