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!
Interview with Guacamole
Sofiya M., Age 8, Tribe of Naphtali (Junior Camp)
Guacamole was my ATL this year and my first year at summer camp. I wanted to interview Guacamole because she is really funny and she was pretty and nice and I want to tell you a lot about her. Her favorite color is pink. So is mine. Really it is. Her favorite pet is a guinea pig because she had one and they are cute and fluffy. Guac’s favorite number is 4 because it’s her soccer number. Her favorite verse is Hebrews 11:1 because it tells about faith and that’s her middle name. She said to pray for patience in school and stress in school. She likes to sleep because she’s tired sometimes. She accepted Jesus into her heart in her first time at Junior Camp. She loves Guacamole because she is guacamole herself and it’s tasty. Guacamole loves Camp because she gets to see Squid and she loves learning about the Bible. I loved camp and I can’t wait to come back next year. And I loved being in Guacamole’s cabin. The End.
An Interview with Google
Elliot A., Age 13, Tribe of Simeon (Teen Camp)
Google was born in Jacksonville, FL. He was a Tribe Leader for Junior & Teen Camp on the East Coast this year. He has been attending Camp Gilgal West Coast for many years but came to C.G. East this year because he attends college in Pennsylvania. His favorite bible verse changes quite often, but is currently either Isaiah 11:9 or Galatians 2:20. He has played many instruments, starting with the clarinet. He truly let Jesus into his life at Adventure Camp West in 2013. His overall favorite camp shirt is the one from 2010, and it’s my personal favorite as well. This is his first year as a counselor. His favorite color is the rainbow and his favorite tribe to be at camp is Simeon. He LOVES french toast at camp and his favorite all-camp activity is Mission Impossible. Google loves movies that make him cry. His favorite one is a romance called Listen to your Heart. If he had to tell someone a favorite joke on the spot it would be this: A man was praying to God. He asked God how long 1,000,000 years was to him. God replied, “A second.” He then asked how much a million dollars was to God to which He replied, “a penny.” The man then asked God if he could have a million dollars and God said, “Wait a second.” I have greatly enjoyed having Google as my tribe leader this year and hope that one day you can have him as yours too. I can’t wait until I can be staff! I hope you get to experience the fun with staff here at camp.
