    I helped out at a camp called Summer Soul Surf Camp as a counselor in training (CIT). Our days consisted mostly of surfing on San Onofre Surf Beach and getting acquainted with other surfers. The style of the camp is super chill and everyone acts like family. It's so fun getting bit by the surfing bug!-Sharon Borden (10)


    The 80 days of summer flew

    by quickly for Aragon stu-

    dents. Many traveled afar

    to pursue their interests

    while others took advantage

    of local activities. No matter

    where they went, the Dons

    encountered remarkable

    opportunities and brought

    back exciting stories of

    their summer.

    I work at Aaron Brothers, where I am a certified junior Framer. As an artist, I love

    working there because peo-ple bring their best artwork

    to be framed. I feel honored that they trust me with their precious photos and paintings.-Sarah Manning (11)

    I went to Lhasa, Tibet and

    spent three days at an or-

    phanage teaching English

    and playing games with

    children through a program

    called ARCC (Adventures

    Cross Country). The or-

    phans, who were happy

    despite their hardships,

    really inspired me.

    My family went to Australia, where

    we visited the Sydney Opera

    House and took a tour of the Blue

    Mountains. We flew to Cairns

    where we swam in the breathtak-

    ing Great Barrier Reef and glided

    across the rainforest in a skyrail.

    -Elizabeth McSheery (10)

    In Spain, I stayed at the Hotel Arts Barce-lona, the best 5 star hotel I've ever been to. I took Spanish guitar & Flamenco lessons.

    I visited family in Bos-ton and some friends

    in Kansas. I then took a family trip to Shanghai, China to see the World

    Expo. Finally, I traveled to Malibu with my friend Katherine Pavicic, and we stayed there for a couple of weeks
