Camp Mighty Eagle

My name is Farohiddin. I am 14 years old, in the 9th grade. Last summer, I went to a remarkable camp. It was a family camp, organized by CDI Kara-Suu staff members Erna and Andreas. In early July, 75 of us left together for the camp, stopping along the way for a picnic and some get-to-know-you games. That was only the beginning of a great time.

Every day we had 3 delicious meals. One day we went on a half-day hike and another day we hiked up to a crystal-clear mountain lake with glaciers behind it and a long snowfield we could slide down. It was amazing to play on snow in the summer! Watching the sun rise every morning warmed not only my face but my heart. Games, handicrafts – like building a kite – and learning many facts about the eagle made this camp a very special experience. I made new friends and improved my English by talking with the foreign visitors who helped with the camp. I was so glad my father took time off work so that we could make unforgettable memories together. I hope in the future I can be a small group leader at camp too.
