A Summer in Photos

Now that I’m finally home, after another epic summer at camp and just over 6 weeks travelling through North and Central America, I’ve been going back through my thousands of photos (yes, thousands!) from camp (and travels) and marveling at just how much happens in a few short months!

So here’s my summer in photos, one for every week:
