Jennica Gagne says she loves going to camp because the energy and the people are so liberating. “I’m not afraid to do anything or try anything. I do it all," the 19 year old says. It’s a place where she can do stupid stuff, according to her mother, Krista. “What teenager didn’t do something harmless or stupid that their parents didn’t know about? She’s really an amazingly good kid, but she goes to camp and it’s her opportunity to be bad.” Jennica went to camp a blonde this year because the shade she usually wears – hot pink – was discontinued. At camp, she says, “I just get to be who I want to be.”
