Hemlock VDReturners

Annika grew up at camp & was on Hemlock staff last summer! She is so excited to have the best time with her Hemlocks this summer, playing in the mountains & learning more about God's love!

What is your favorite thing about camp?

The friendships you make with both campers and staffers! God is so present in all these relationships and you build such deep connections with everyone! Getting to run around with your best friends in the mountains is AWESOME!

If you had to spend a whole day in one spot at camp, where would it be?

The pickleball courts! I taught the skill last summer and loved getting to play everyday!

If you could have one song play every time you entered a room, what would it be?

Ready For It - Taylor Swift (specifically the beginning)

What is your favorite movie?

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days- I love rom-coms!

What are you most excited for this summer?

Hanging out with the Hemlocks all summer!! I can't wait to get to know each one of them and see them shine this summer!

What are you praying for in anticipation of this summer?

I pray that everyone feels God's love during their time at camp and that I can share my love for the Lord to girls! I hope they go back home at the end of this summer and hold onto this love!
