The whole Gilgal Gazette (East, Midwest, and West) will be live online later this fall, but we’ll be sharing pieces from the Camp Gilgal East Gazette here each week. The Gilgal Gazette is a newspaper written by Camp Gilgal campers, for Camp Gilgal campers. We hope that you enjoy it!
Olivia T., Age 8, Tribe of Naphtali (Junior Camp)
Hi my name is Olivia. This is my first time at East Coast summer camp. Last year I was at the Midwest summer camp. I loved Mad Science it was my favorite activity, because it was fun and there were experiments. Hiccup is a tribe leader for the boys, his tribe name is Judah and he is in charge of Mad Science and hiking. He’s silly so silly. I interviewed Hiccup because I like Mad Science and hiking. He likes some science, like physics and chemistry but hates biology. The Bible is his favorite book he tries to read it every day. His goal is about 3 chapters a day. His favorite colors are green, red, blue, and orange. He loves to eat mac and cheese (in a crockpot)!! He likes football books by Tim Green. He’s going to college in Florida and he’s going to live an hour away from Disney World!!! His favorite animal is a dog. I can’t wait to come back and to see Hiccup again! BYE! :)
Interview with the Health Director
Trent F., Age 14, Tribe of Simeon (Teen Camp)
Our health director Baby Carrots is a very passionate, outgoing person. Because she has been a believer since she was very young, she looked forward to being an ATL since she was a camper. When she had the opportunity to be an ‘ATL’ she jumped at it. Her valuable experience led her to be a tribe leader and then out of cabin staff. Now she serves as the health director. She told me she thinks God gave her the ability and passion to be in the medical field because it’s not for everyone. She currently is an EMT going to school to become a Physician’s Assistant as well as specializing in critical care. When she can use her medical skills in such a wonderful atmosphere she feels fulfilled. At night she helps me with my meds but she doesn’t rush me so she can sleep. She’s a patient person who plays a very important role in the Gilgal Staff.
