What was I doing in Chicago?

Well, this summer I’m going to be a director at a high tech summer camp in New York and there’s a lot of training I have to go through first.

Because the camp is nationwide there are several training locations and Chicago was the closest one to me.

This is a taste of what I can expect over the summer, I get a bed and 3 square meals.

The meeting was 2 days long, informative, and a lot of fun!

I’m excited about the camp and I’ll be keeping you up to date while I’m up there.
