An Editor's Thoughts
By Bjorn Heselius
Editor in Chief
This summer has been a special summer to all of us, not only because of the first Green victory in 4 years or the fact that it's the first summer of the new Millennium. But the fact is that all of us that have been living in camp this summer are now going home with a whole new bunch of memories and experiences. Some of you might have excelled in the ropes course or maybe you have improved your skills in swimming or another activity. This is not just something that happens, it is a sign that says you are believing in what you are doing.
When I first came to camp in Mid-June everything was new to me, it was my first time over-seas, I had never before tried Peanut butter sandwiches, and it was also my first time in my 20-year long life to work at a summer camp. Taking on the responsibility of being not only a cabin counselor but also being the editor in chief of the Argus really seemed to be an impossible thing for me to handle. But then I realized that I am not the only one in this situation, many of you are also first-time campers and the camp experience might seem overwhelming. The best thing we can do in such a situation is to take one thing at a time, believe in ourselves and remain strong.
Take that home with you, always remember that you are a strong individual as long as you believe in yourself. With this I would like to thank you all for a terrific summer and wish you all a great winter with lots of Shohola memories. I hope you enjoy this issue of the Argus.
