My Summer Camp Experience: Elias Estrada

a summer camper gets a new hair cut.The hot Texas sun hit the top of my bald head.  It was the hot summer of 2011.  It was the Marine Military Academy summer camp where I would take on my fear of heights and learn how to be part of a team.

When I first arrived at MMA, I was scared; I heard a lot of screaming.  I thought I had made a mistake coming to summer camp, but I was mistaken.

In summer camp I learned how to overcome my fears in all aspects from following orders, facing fears and being friendlier.  “How could I have come?”  I asked myself at one point.  However, in the end, I understood that I came to change.
