  • Together with my peers and fellow staff members at a Christian summer camp, we created an entire virtual program, in the absence of our regular sleepaway camp.

The entire staff was proud of the end result, and we were very proud of the positive response from campers.

I am attempting the same thing with AP Government, as my school does not offer the coarse.
