Julia K., Age 12
Tribe of Simeon
My name is Julia. I’m from the tribe of Simeon. I’ve been going to Camp Gilgal for five years. One of the tribe leaders I have met during these years is Snapple. She has been a tribe leader five years and part of the Camp Gilgal family for 12 years. She got the name Snapple by one odd day she chipped her tooth. What happened was one day, when she was young, Snapple was drinking Snapple and she chipped her tooth on it! So, since the chipped tooth was caused by a Snapple bottle, she decided to name herself Snapple.
Some random facts about Snapple are that she likes to eat sushi, pasta, and tomatoes. She likes the color green and her favorite camp activity is Wells Fargo, which is also my favorite. For her first year of camp she was in the tribe of Zebulun. Her favorite theme night is Superhero Night, and, of course, she loves Snapple! Some of her favorite flavors are Lemon Tea and Diet Peach Tea. Her favorite tribe name is Issachar, or the sun.
Snapple is an amazing tribe leader. She’s not in-cabin staff anymore but she is great as an out-of-cabin staff member. I know for sure that I will miss her when I come home from camp.
