6 types of people you are guaranteed to see at CHWC👤by Billy Endicott 1 Comment 📅March 8th, 2016, 20:29
1. The Selfie Pro
You know this type, and every camp has one. This camper will photo-document your whole week, every program, every car trip, every fresh coat of paint… all of their insta followers NEED to know about it. Always be ready for a photo-op, even when you look your unshowered, paint covered, sleep deprived, taco-filled “camp best.”

2. Musician’s Biggest Fan
This camper knows more about your camp musician than your camp musician does. Need music to listen to on the way to your worksite? Don’t worry, they have every album on their phone. They’ll spend the whole day talking about how great morning program was, and then how much they’re looking forward to singing along at evening program.
Maybe they’ll try to run on stage to get a selfie with their idol during Dance Party
3. Captain ENTHUSIASM
Try to meet someone more excited than they are this week, you can’t. This quality will be driving your team forward from day 1 to free day, this camper won’t get tired, won’t get worn out, and will always be smiling and encouraging…. even at 5am, when they’re first in line for breakfast.
EVERYTHING IS SO GREAT ALL THE TIME!!!
4. Carpenter Commando’s Top Cadet
Spends the lunch break at the worksite doing pushups between decades of the rosary, their number one goal coming to camp was to get on stage and show their stuff to the carpenter commandos. They’ve probably been “Full-Fledged” 4 or 5 times now, they know their stuff… and they certainly own their share of camouflage.
They might even try to run some training exercises with the residents at your site. #HeyCarpenterCommando
5. The Underpacker
You’ve probably seen them wear the same work shirt every day, they came with the God will provide attitude, taking to heart the advice from Mt 10:10
“Don’t carry a traveler’s bag with a change of clothes and sandals or even a walking stick. Don’t hesitate to accept hospitality, because those who work deserve to be fed.”
They threw their tooth brush and favorite bandana into a sleeping bag and came to camp, but they’re carefree about it, maybe they can teach you a thing or two.
Their favorite thing is the free clean shirt at the end of the week.
6. The Seasoned Veteran
If you sit next to this camper during the tool show, chances are they already know every single word the tool team will say. This isn’t their first Catholic Heart Rodeo. They probably learned the intro dance on the first try, this vet can tell you all the tricks to get the most out of your week.
They probably have a different costume for program every night.
Which camper are you?
