Trying Something New

Written by Nathaniel ‘Flash’ Lackey, Media Manager: Lazy F Camp Summer 2019

Hello! I can’t wait for you to get here! This last week at camp has been a ton of fun, especially these last few days. I got to go on some awesome hikes and see huge crosses that were bigger than me! What was cool though is that I got to do it with some awesome people; Crescendo, Happy Feet, Juice, and Duck. I know, weird names, right? But that’s not really what I wanted to talk about.

Since getting to camp I have been able to do all of these new things. My new friends and I made tamales for the first time ever. We also went rafting as a group on the Yakima River. And guess what?! Crescendo AND Happy Feet fell in! You know what’s even more wild? Duck had a little boat that he was in and he jumped onto a raft out of the water! A boat on a boat! How crazy is that?! Wow, I really wish you could be here to experience this with me.

I don’t know if you will see me as soon as you get here but maybe you will meet my friends first. Before you get here though here is something to keep in mind. There is a lot to do here at camp and tons of new people that you are going to meet. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone a little bit to try something new. Camp is one of the best and safest places to do that. Maybe just try a new craft or art project you haven’t done before. You could try being a  part of a skit at campfire and really show off your amazing acting skills OR you could even try a new food in the dining hall! There is so much for you to do here and I hope you at least learn something and have fun while doing it. I can’t wait to see what you do.

Yours truly,


Media Manager
