As a current sixth grader, I absolutely loved the trip to Greenkill. It was amazing and really, REALLY fun, and it was a great way to hang out with your teammates. This year, I’m on the Purple Team, also known as the Grape Jammers. The Purple Team is all about music and dancing, and at Greenkill, we held a lot of dance parties at night after dinner and showers. But the part that resonates with me the most is the lip dub that we did.

After planning for about 24 hours, both girls and boys got assigned a part in the song “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen. We spent a lot of time rehearsing and choreographing each verse of the song. In the end, we videotaped it and the video is now on YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram.
