Describe your favorite memory at Carver.

“My favorite memory at Carver is when we go to Lake Compounce. We go on multiple rides, we go swimming, we hang out with our friends, and we get so much to eat. We go on rides that twist you around and rides that go up and down. I love rollercoasters. I don't get scared, but I scream a lot."

Who is your role model?

"My role models are my counselors Ari and Ciara. They teach me so many different things and they're fun. Today, Ciara was helping me in math and Ari helps me sometimes to. I also like dancing with them, and Ciara and I joke around a lot."

What do you want to be when you grow up?

“I want to be a professional dancer and run my own dance studio. I realized I wanted to be a professional dancer when I was 5. I love to dance. If we keep on doing parents night here, and my counselors keep helping me with my dancing, I think Carver could help me become a professional dancer."

What is your biggest dream?

"I want to open up another Carver camp. It helps kids make new friends. Most summer camps don't teach you during the summer, but this one does, and I think that's really important. My camp would have lots of field trips like we do at Carver."

Describe an accomplishment that you’re proud of.

"I'm proud of passing my test, which meant that I didn't have to go to summer school. I felt nervous while I was taking the test, but I knew that I could do it. I had faith in myself. When I found out I passed the test, I felt really excited. I needed to get a score of 204 on my math test, but I even got a 214!"

Describe Carver to someone who doesn’t know what it is.

“Carver is a fun, educational summer camp that will help you develop new skills. It helps you meet new friends, and you have a lot of fun instead of just staying at home. Also, we're not supposed to have phones here, which is good because when we grow up our eyes won't be bad since we don't have too much screen time.”
