Archana R., Student, Christel House India
I have attended Christel House for the past nine years, and it’s been one of the greatest gifts in my life. Christel House has given me more than I can ask for. The best gift was the trip to Culver Academy this summer. I was excited to be in a new country so very far from my own. At the start of camp I was really nervous and excited. It was at this time that I was most thankful to Becky and Mandi (from Christel House) for helping me settle into life at Culver! Each day at Culver was an unforgettable one. I made many friends from around the world. I also tried many new sports and activities, such as basketball, swimming, diving and shooting. I achieved bronze medals in all these activities by passing the required tests. The “Great Race” was also great fun. Through all of these activities, I have developed strong teamwork and social skills.
Soon after camp we went to Christel Ma’am's house, swam in her pool and rode in golf carts. Over dinner, we got to share our great experiences with Christel Ma’am.
Our trips to New York and New Jersey gave us the chance to do some sightseeing and buy some nice gifts. I had a lot of fun and would like to thank everyone at Wyndham with a special hearty thanks to Mr. Geoff and Mr. and Mrs. Holmes.
I would like to thank everyone else who made this trip so memorable for me. I have gained so much self-confidence after attending the camp and have enjoyed sharing my experiences with everyone here in Christel House India. I will miss my Christel House cousins, with whom I have built lifelong friendships. I look forward to seeing everyone again next year.
