Whether you go to an Academy or Center, go once or all four years, you know how amazing Duke Tip is. It's hard to describe to friends back home or to coaches what exactly "Nerd Camp" really is. It's the dance every weekend, it's the amazing classes you take, it's the amazing people you meet during the process. God, I've learned so much from the 12 weeks of my life I've spent at Duke Tip and I wish there was a way to pay it all back. I don't know who I would've been had I not gone to camp after 7th grade, but whoever I would've been would not be who I am now, and I wouldn't change a thing. It's hard to believe I almost didn't go. I just want to say to all of my fellow tipsters, I love you, even when I don't show it.
