If you could be friends with any fictional character, who would it be, and why?

Luke Skywalker so I could learn everything about the force and become and elite jedi!

Is a hot dog a sandwich? Why or why not?

I do not think a hot dog is a sandwich. A hot dog in my opinion is in its own class whereas a sandwich is two pieces of bread with sliced meat and cheese plus other amenities.

What are you most looking forward to this summer?

I am looking forward to being back at camp with everyone that I know and love. Camp Ridgecrest is an essential part of my summer and cannot wait to be back in the mountains!

What is your prayer for this summer?

I'm praying that campers will be able to return this summer with or without the presence of COVID and that they can experience the camp experience we all know and love.
