This coming summer, I am going to a pole vault camp at Sacramento State University. I’m super excited to go, because this is my first ever, only pole vault camp. It is run by a former American Record holder, Stacy Dragila, so I’m guessing, it’s going to be amazing.
Before my dad signed me up for it, he showed me a video of what the camp was going to be like. When I saw the video, it just looked like so much fun. It had film of people doing workouts, which for me, is really fun. And it had kids doing a lot of strength training, to help with pole vault, because you have to be able to swing up on the side of your pole. This might sound like complete drudgery for some people, but for me, this is how I would like to spend my summer.
I’m also looking forward to being the only person from Texas there. It’s located in California, so most people from the camp, are from California. So since it is in another state, this will be my first plane ride alone, without my parents. I’m kind of nervous, but at the same time, super ecstatic about it! I mean, I won’t have my parents telling me what to do! But anyways, since I will most likely be the only one from Texas there, people might wonder what it is like to live here. And I think that’s pretty cool. Plus, after the camp, we’re going to see some family-friends for a few days! I can’t wait to go!
