  1. God I wish you had to have a webcam rolling when you watched that video – I would love to see the reactions of the lucky six!
    Congrats all, have a great time.

      • I get that a lot! Though most of my friends aren’t comfortable saying Beth because they feel like they’re saying Bess but with a lisp.

        Also I kind of blanked for a moment when you said my name, I had to go back and re-watch to make sure I hadn’t imagined it.

  2. congratulations people!
    but more importantly what is the remix of tightrope at the end of the vid? ? ?

  3. And the next name,
    that I am going to call,

  5. Omg Sarah Freeman! Who are you? That’s my birth name. I want to meet you :)

    Also, was there ever a documentary posted from camp? I think I missed it!
