Lake Jacomo Reflection

Imagine a place where girls with physical disabilities can enjoy the resident camp experience - sleeping in a tent, singing around the campfire, swimming in a wheelchair-accessible pool, and, most importantly, forming friendships that last a lifetime. Now imagine a place where YOU make it all possible - bringing joy to these campers, learning what it takes to work in a disability-related field, and forming bonds that you will forever remember. That place is Juliette Low Camp, in beautiful Lake Jacomo, Missouri, where more than 100 girls with physical disabilities and their friends join together with 28 teen Girl Scouts, ages 15-18, from throughout the U.S. for an unforgettable experience.

During each camp session, you will provide the campers with the opportunity to enjoy swimming, songs, games and campfires. You will also assist/take care of the campers' dressing, feeding, personal care, and transportation around the camp (wheelchair power!). From opening day to the closing campfire, you will have the chance to provide a summer of memories for a special group of young girls.

Hi!   I'm Erica, and over the week-end, I went on a camping trip! It was a lot of fun, and I'm really happy I got to go.   I'm a Juliette, which means I'm a Girl Scout, but I don't have a troop.   That's why I think it was really nice of the troop I went with to invite me.

The camp we went to was Kamp Kiwanis.   It's a really nice camp on a large, beautiful, perfectly blue lake.   We stayed in three white cabins, and they even had electricity!   It had tetherball, an archery range, and a swimming hole!

After we unpacked and ate lunch, we put on our life jackets.   We were going to ride on a yellow and red banana boat, which is a float that's connected to a boat.   I could see why it's called a banana boat because it's shaped like a banana!   On the first ride, I rode in back.   The water was freezing, and by the time we started speeding up, I was shivering!   Eventually, I got used to the temperature and it felt really warm.   The banana boat turned out to be more exciting, fun, and exhilarating than I thought it would be!   We would bounce up and down on it, lean to the sides, and wave to the people we saw.   I fell off the side once, but I pulled myself back on.   We switched people after a while, and I was still riding in back.   Once, when we were leaning, the whole banana boat tipped over!   We all fell in the lake, laughing really hard.   We got back on it, but it wasn't long before one of my friends fell off!   After that, we just slid off.   Only one person stayed on!   We switched people a second time, and this time I was riding in front.   It's bouncier in the front, and I got bounced off!   I was giggling the entire time.   Everyone else thought it was funny, too.   We went around the lake a little more, but we had to turn back because we ran low on gas.

When we came back we were really hungry.   That was good, because it was already time for dinner!   We had tacos, beans, rice, and chips and salsa.   It was all incredibly good!   After dinner, we played cards.   They taught me how to play a game I had never learned before, but I've already forgotten it!   We also made some cool bracelets and played with clay.   We went to bed a little early, exhausted from the day.   The next day, we had some pancakes and went home.   It was extremely fun the entire time, and I'll never forget it!
