Summers at Camp Evergreen are always exciting and fun-filled, but it’s also perfectly natural to be a little nervous when you first arrive. It’s a new place with new people and new things happening every day. But, by the end of your first summer at Camp Evergreen, you will feel like you are a part of a big sisterhood.
If you need someone to talk about being homesick, how to resolve a problem with a fellow camper, are unsure about what amazing camp activities you should pick for the day or if you just want someone to talk to, you’ll have your two bunk counselors around who are always there to support you, along with the other counselors who live in your lodge. As an Evergreen camper, you’ll also have someone else who will likely become a very important person in your life: your Camp Evergreen Big Sister.
A couple of days after you arrive you will meet your Evergreen Big Sister. She’s a 15-year-old camper who has been at Evergreen before, and she can’t wait to get to know you! She will quickly become someone you can rely on and trust. She will help you grow more comfortable in your new summer home, meet new friends of different ages, and even be there to help you say goodbye to your family should you decide to stay for the entire summer.
At the Opening Ceremonial Campfire the Big Sisters will teach you about the characteristics of an Evergreen girl, and share with you stories of how they have made our summer camp their second home. They’ll invite you over to their lodge to share stories and have a dance party. Other times, the Big Sisters will take you and your friends out for an afternoon of bowling and ice cream. Your Camp Evergreen Big Sister will be there to support and guide you from the moment she meets you!
