At the age of seven, I started going to summer camp. From the moment school ended, I counted the hours until camp began. When my years of being a camper ended, I became a counselor, then a lifeguard, and then an aquatics director. Camp has been a part of my summer story since as long as I can remember. My family didn’t travel much in the summer. My sister and I both had varied camping experiences, while my brother chose to stay home for the summer. There are far more children who don’t go to camp than do.

I've never seen anything like it - and am so grateful to the internet for the discovery! When first seeing our Artist of the Month, Dan Miller's art, I was stunned. Every time I see something by him in my feed, I am happy, pause, reflect, breathe. He has an unusually calm and detailed way of sharing the natural world with viewers - one for which I am grateful. His medium? Colored pencils!

I’ve lived near the water my entire life. Summer days were spent running toes through the sand and jumping through endless waves. At university, I met a girl from Kansas and asked her what she did during the summer - many of our answers were different. I don’t think I appreciated the beauty of landlocked regions until much later in life. In my opinion, the sun rose and set on oceans and beaches - everything else was moot. Travel changed that. Interaction with others changed that.
