My Second Home – A Poem

Camper Jacob, who is gearing up for his second summer at North Star, had an assignment to write a poem about 30 seconds in your life that had meaning. This is what he wrote:

We had been on a fancy coach bus for over eight hours
but everyone was getting restless,
Then over the intercom,
the bus driver shouts
“We’re at camp!”
I glance out the window
and sure enough a giant sign said
“Welcome to North Star Camp”
Even I, who had never been there before
was ecstatic
“Screech,” the bus stopped on the dirt road,
I jumped off the bus and took my first step
into the place that I now call
My Second Home.

We were so impressed we had to share!
