Daniela, 9 years old: “I would describe Carver summer camp as a fun and learning camp. Not like a summer camp. More like a summer school, but with a lot of fun.”


Describe your favorite memory at Carver summer camp so far

“My favorite memory was the first day of camp because that was the day I met my best friends. And also the special days like when we go swimming and when we go on adventures. My favorite field trip was when we went to the movies. I sat with my best friend, Laura, and we bought some popcorn and some candy. The candy was really good. And I love the popcorn there. I got to see my favorite movie, Incredibles 2, and it was the best day of my life.”

Who is your role model

“My role model is my best friend, Laura. She’s supportive and she does gymnastics and I do cheerleading, and it’s basically the same thing, so I have a friend that can stretch with me.”

What do you want to be when you grow up?

“When I grow up, I want to be a veterinarian and a cheerleading coach.”

How will Carver help you reach those goals?

“Going to Carver will help me be a coach because I can stretch here and be more flexible. And to be a vet I can learn more here.”

What is something you’re passionate about?

“I really care about doing Prodigy, which is a new math program for me. I like math because you get to learn a lot. Prodigy helped me get a lot better at math. It’s has reading and math, and I really like reading too, so I really like Prodigy.”

Describe an accomplishment that you’re proud of?

“I’m proud of doing my back hip circle on the playground. It’s when you go on the bar and you put your good leg up and go backwards on the bar and then stand up straight. I’m also proud of math, because we learn a lot of math here, and I’ve gotten a lot better. Also, we learn reading, science, and baking here, and I’m proud of that too.”

How would you describe Carver to someone who doesn’t know what it is?

“I would describe it as a fun and learning camp. Not like a summer camp. More like a summer school, but with a lot of fun.”
