My Life as a Fire-breathing Snail
Slice of LYF: April 2018 | Issue 07
Jonathan Chen

Hey everyone! Thanks for coming out to
the March staff meeting — the postcards look great and I’m sure that the campers
will love them! MY LYF AS A _____ is about the choices we make that shape who we
are and also those around us. Through the world we create, illustrated with our family
of imaginative characters using different textures and colors to represent transitioning personalities, our definition of self is always changing. With this, we hope that you will grow through every decision you make into stronger individuals. Also, keep an eye out for the incoming apparel design coming soon! Hope you enjoy it!


Family Message

Hi Everyone! It’s April and camp is soon approaching! As Family Heads, our vision for families this year is to have campers step out of their comfort zone and bond with campers of different age groups. However, we’ve always felt that families were somewhat awkward when nobody took the initiative to interact with others. As a result, we will be splitting half of a small group and merging it with another half of a small group to create a family! This way, campers can interact with others within the safety of their small groups! We’re super excited to see how this will turn out and can’t wait to see you all at camp!!

Your Fam,
Michael & Jamie
