Jenna Dwy
Unit leader, camp promise-Rockies

When was your first year at Camp Promise?
My first year was 2016 at Camp Promise-East. In 2017, I was lucky to be able to go to Camp Promise East as a counselor, as well as Camp Promise-Rockies where I was the Orange Cabin unit leader. 

Why do you keep coming back to camp?
I keep coming back to Camp Promise to be reunited with all my friends and to make even more new friends. There is something special about friendships made while forging limitless opportunities and supporting each other to be themselves. Also, how could I resist our ice cream trough tradition?!

What's your favorite camp theme day and why?
Zombie Day. Whether I was at Camp Promise-East or Camp Promise-Rockies, people had plenty of puns to share about the fake knife in my head.
What's your favorite camp memory? 
The ice cream trough! It's the best combination of fun, messy, and inevitably ends with a counselor getting covered in the melted aftermath. 

If we did a talent show right now, what would your talent be?
My go to is singing the "If you like Pina Coladas" song. 

What’s your day job?
I go to University of Connecticut where I'm double majoring in Disability Sciences and Human Rights.

Anything else you want the world to know?
Come to Camp Promise to try cool new things and watch people make fools of themselves for a straight week.
