Being an international camper at Foley is a different, but a great experience. Everybody is very inclusive at camp, but it is hard to be so far away from home. Another thing is that if English is not your first language, it does become hard and tiring to not be able to speak your first language. You might also get some questions about home, and it is really cool to talk about how things are different, but also how they are similar. It is very surprising how many things we have in common, even though we come from different countries. Being an international camper will also give you an opportunity to bond with other international campers, even if you come from different countries, too. Being an international camper has no limitations and you have lots of fun being somewhere different from home. The camp is a wonderful opportunity for everybody, and everyone should try activities that they couldn’t do at home. Coming to Foley from a different country is definitely an experience to remember. I feel like at the end, we will all take a different message home with us.
