Rusty talks to Camp K

As we finish out our 3rd week of camp, we had a chance to catch up with one of our returning campers — Rusty. Rusty has been coming to Camp K for over 20 years. When not coming to summer camp, Rusty also comes to our community-based programs. Here is what Rusty had to say:

RustyWhat activities do you like to come to Camp K for?

“I like the trips — like the trips to the Boondocks and Jazz games. They are so much fun! I got to do the fan tunnel at the Jazz game, last year!”

What else do you like?

“Horseback riding and swimming.”

This year, Rusty has participated in two weeks of Travel Trips and has gone to Bryce Canyon and Zions National Park, and he’ll be coming back two more times. Here is what Rusty had to say, in his own words, about his experience so far:

What is your favorite thing about Travel Trips Camp?

“Camping and seeing the sights. It’s fun to travel around and see the country!”

What else do you like?

“Seeing friends and making new ones.”

How are your counselors on your Trips?

“They’re all very nice.”

If you had to describe Camp K to a friend that’s never been here, what would you say?


We also had a chance to sit down with Rusty’s counselors and here’s what they had to say:

What can you tell us about Rusty?

“There is one word to use when describing Rusty, “Helpful.” Rusty is great to have with us because he is always there to help us and help out other campers.”

Another counselor described Rusty by saying, “Rusty knows these sites better than us.”
