Goodbye Summer 2016

Well guys, the end has come. I cannot even begin to explain what an amazing summer I had. This was my first summer with Save the Harbor/Save the Bay. As you can see by reading all of my blog posts, I had a lot of new experiences that really brought me out of my comfort zone. I learned a lot not only about Save the Harbor, but also about myself and what I am capable of. I could not have asked for a better summer or for better people to share it with. One of the best parts of this job was knowing that I had a team of people supporting me at all times. It was tough to manage Carson Beach at times, for circumstances far out of my control, but I know that I had people behind me and helping me out at all times.

I loved that I got to interact with so many different children, and so many different kinds of camps and groups. It was awesome seeing some faces over and over again during the summer, but just as fun working with groups only once or twice. Just knowing that camps and directors were setting aside time to come join us at the beach was a great feeling. We worked hard to advertise and reach out to the communities, so receiving such powerful feedback and high demand for activities felt really great.

I am going to miss a lot of things about this summer. But I have a lot of amazing memories to take with me. I am already looking forward to making more with Save the Harbor in the future. Until next year, Bridget
