I have been a camper at Camp Tournesol from the very beginning. As a camper, every summer I would look forward to Camp Tournesol because I got to see my friends and the same counsellors year after year. When I was too old to be a camper and had to choose to be a counsellor in training (CIT) or not go to camp, I automatically chose to become a CIT. I had had such a good time as a camper that I did not want the fun to end. As a CIT I learned the ropes of what it was like to be a counsellor; teaching different games, starting thousands of friendship bracelets for campers and most importantly showing the campers it is easy to have fun while speaking French. When it came time for me to be a counsellor I was all for it. My first year working as a counsellor was with people who had been my counsellor when I was a camper. They became my Camp Tournesol family. All the counsellors are extremely friendly and supportive, and when you or the campers, run into a problem they are there to help you out. I come back to work at Camp Tournesol year after year because I have developed friendships with all the other counsellors along with getting to see the same kids come back, see them grow and see their French improve. From camper to CIT to counsellor I have seen every aspect of the camp and I believe the best thing that Camp Tournesol offers to the campers is it shows them they can have fun speaking French.
