Pronounces name RUu-uuu–uuu
… and also joining us at camp this summer is, KUMARA !
Her name means sweet potato, and she is exactly that! Sweet, golden, gooey, mushy goodness nobody can resist. She goes by KUMA for short.
She’s 7 years young, and loves to cuddle big people, little people, dogs, and cats!
We found each other almost a year and a half ago. I highly suspect her breed is part wolf, part teddy bear, and part Wookiee.
She loves playing in the woods, rolling in the snow, and chasing squirrels. Although she never catches anything, she always does her best and never gives up; and she ALWAYS has fun trying : )
I’m excited to say this is my first summer at Camp Augusta, and I will be celebrating with the joyful campers of Manzi village!!!
It is going to be the most special of summers thanks to all of you!
What am I excited about you may ask?!!?!?!?
For starters, I get to spend my whole summer playing, dancing, frolicking, climbing, yoga-ing, cartwheeling, crafting, growing, creating, and LEARNING from all of you beautiful souls.
Whether I’m hanging upside down on silks, getting dog piled in mud, or taking care of our little green friends in the garden, come say hello and tell me what makes you feel alive! I’d love to hear your dreams and help make them come true!
It’s going to be a magical time and I hope you can’t wait for it to start too!
