  1. The Thread: https://www.iwakuroleplay.com/threads/camp-marion.60895/

    Background Info:
    In the warmer area of Oregon, just of off Marion Lake is a basic, average summer camp- Camp Marion. Just a little ways from the canoe-dotted shore, surrounded by lush green forests, sit small, screened in cabins connected by dirt paths. The boys cabins and the girls cabins sit on opposite sides of the campgrounds. In the center of the camp is the campfire pit and the mess hall, both important in the running of the camp. Beyond the mess hall is the activity center with a range of various different buildings intending to entertain the campers such as arts and crafts, games, etc. (There are about 60 campers, 30 boys and 30 girls. They are all 8-14 years old. Each Counselor-In-Training, or CIT, is responsible alongside an official Counselor for 2 cabins, or 10 campers. Campers are NPC.)

    Beyond all this, is the counselors quarters, where our story takes place. Counselors-In-Training, CIT's, most often ex-campers, are students ages 17-19 who are learning to be counselors. These are the people who run the mess hall, monitor activities, entertain the campers, and overall make sure everyone has fun an remains safe. They are each adorned a whistle, a Camp Marion t-shirt, and a cot in one of the two CIT cabins. (Counselors sleep in the camper's cabins) The actual plot will be more about the Counselors lives and relationships then the camp activities themselves.

    There are only 6 CIT slots available. 3 Male | 3 Female! Keep variety in characters. Diversity is key! Sign-Up Quickly!

    Here's my Character Sheet-

    Name: Brynn Evans

    Age: 18

    Gender: Female

    Sexuality: Pansexual

    Appearance:
    [​IMG]
    Reason for CITing: During the school year, Brynn and her mother made an agreement. If Brynn got all C's or higher, she could do as she pleased over the summer. If Brynn got any lower, her mother got to pick out an enriching program for her to indulge in. Her mother chose CITing and Camp Marion because she had used to attend their when she was a little girl, and wanted her daughter to experience new responsibilities as she becomes an adult.

    Personality: Brynn is fairly relaxed. She tries not to let things bother and tries to enjoy her youth as much as possible. She is blunt in a way that can often be off-putting, or hilarious, depending on which way you take it. She walks the line between introvert and extravert, enjoying company but also enjoying a few moments to herself.

    BG/Home life:
    Brynn's home life is fairly average. Her mother is strict, while her father is lenient. Her mother recently had a miscarriage, causing Brynn's mom to cling onto her as her last hope of a successful offspring. Put off by the spike in pressure, Brynn skips school quite often and finds herself in trouble. She loves smoking cigarettes on the back porch with her dad, but her mom always makes them put them out.

    How many years attended camp:
    0, but her mother attended for a straight 7 years.

  2. Character Sheet:

    Name: Lilia Kinsley

    Age: 17

    Gender: Female

    Sexuality: Straight

    Appearance:
    [​IMG]
    Reason for CITing: Lilia has been attending Camp Marion for years. Seven, to be exact. She used to count down the days until she could finally leave home and go back to camp. When she turned 15, and was no longer eligible to be a camper there, Lilia was devastated. Summer was eerily boring without splashing in the lake, practicing archery, and hanging out with all the cute camp guys. Now that she's 17, and able to be a CIT, Lilia could not be more psyched.

    Personality: Lilia tends to be a little quiet when you first meet her, but she's really quite loud and excitable. Though she tends to be a bit of a know-it-all, Lilia's knowledge about the camp is impressive and her love for the campers is even more endearing. She's a bit of a flirt, which seems to hinder some friendships, but overall she's a sweet and fun-loving girl who has a passion for Camp Marion!

    BG/Homelife: Lilia comes from a family of hippies. Absolutely vegan, animal-nurturing, earth-loving flower-eating maniacs. While she loves the natural lifestyle, as she's gotten older she's driven herself away from the oatmealish way of life and no longer wears hemp clothing. She also now wears makeup, deodorant and eats meat, much to her parents disliking. She doesn't do it out of spite, but out of neediness to fit in, and her parents generally respect that.

    How many years attended camp: Seven and now counting!

  6. Name:
    Viola Simper

    Age:
    18

    Gender:
    Female

    Sexuality:
    Heterosexual

    Appearance:
    [​IMG]

    Reason for CITing:

    Viola attended camp for one year, when she was 14, after a horrible overly dramatic heart break. Camp helped her get over it. She turned 18 this year and graduated high school and got out of another relationship. She figured the best way to get over it was to come back to camp.

    Personality:
    Viola is a naturally flirty girl who easily finds trouble, on accident. She considers herself a peace maker, she always thrusts herself into arguments between people trying to resolve them. And that's how she finds trouble.

    She's very popular amongst her peers and is the person people lean on a lot. She doesn't let it show that she has clinical depression, deciding she can get through it by herself. She's independent and head strong, loving of other people and very bad at taking care of herself.

    Also, she's very musically inclined.

    BG/Homelife:
    Viola lives with her two moms who adopted Viola and a little brother. Viola's birth parents were very musical and so are her two mom's. That's why she's named Viola! Basically her family all gets along well, they laugh a lot and love each other.

    How many years attended camp:
    1, unless you count this year than, 2!
     
  7. Name:Conner Kellings

    Age:17

    Gender:Male

    Sexuality:Bisexual

    Appearance:[​IMG]

    Reason for CITing: Conner was at the camp for a year when he was 14 and he had a lot of fun. He needed something to keep him busy over the summer so he figured he could come back and make a summer fun for a kid, just like his CIT's had done for him.

    Personality:Conner is nerdy but can be outgoing when needed. He likes meeting new people and is very caring. This can lead to caring more for others then himself which sometimes causes him issues.

    BG/Homelife: Conner lives with his mom and step-dad and his two younger siblings. His mom is kind while his step-dad is strict. He is a straight A student, something his parents love about him, and rarely gets in trouble. He loves to draw and listen to music.

  9. Name: Ezekiel Jameson, but goes by Zeke.

    Age: 19

    Gender: Male

    Sexuality: Straight

    Appearance:
    [​IMG]
    Zeke with his puppy Misha who, sadly, wasn’t allowed to go to camp with him.

    Reason for CITing:
    Zeke has been very involved with Camp Marion. He attended since he was eight years old until he was fourteen years old. The year he turned seventeen a letter came in the mail asking if he wanted to train to be a counselor. Of course he accepted.

    Personality:
    Zeke is very outgoing. He likes being with people and people like being with him. He’s a hit with the kids—it can be easily said that he’s their favorite CIT. People describe Zeke as a jokester; making people laugh puts a smile on his face. He likes being outdoors and loves swimming, which is his favorite part of camp because he doesn’t have a pool back home. People usually gravitate to Zeke like a moth to flame; he’s got an innocent smile and eyes full of wisdom. Many consider him a friend, but he has a knack to keep himself separated from people at all times, and he never talks about himself and his own personal problems. He can easily hide those with one of his bright smiles.

    BG/Home life:
    Zeke lives alone with his mom, Winona. He’s definitely a momma’s boy—he’d do anything for her. His parents got a divorce when he was seven, and because his mother got full custody of him, Zeke rarely ever sees his dad, but when he does all they ever do is butt heads. Their relationship can be considered rocky at best. His dad is a successful businessman who travels the world and calls Chinese food a home-cooked meal. His mother, on the other hand, runs a successful daycare, which is why Zeke loves kids. Now that he’s graduated high school, Zeke has been helping out at the daycare in between his spiel of odd jobs that he’s taken to raise money to go to college.

    How many years attended camp: Zeke attended the camp for the first seven years as a camper, and another two years as a CIT, which would be nine years total but ten years counting the current year!

  16. Name: Charlie Brown

    Age: 18

    Gender: Male

    Sexuality: Straight

    Appearance:[​IMG]

    Reason for CITing: Charlie just loves being around children and helping them with things. He wants to be a teacher when he is older. He thinks that spending his free time learning how to get along with them is just a great study. He also likes the vibe the whole camp has

    Personality: Charlie is very hard to ignore, he likes joking and being around people. This doesn't mean that he's never serious, because he can be very serious. Most kids love him but also know not to mess with him. People like to come to him and talk about their problems. He always says he is gifted with a pair of ears and mouth so better use them too.

    BG/Homelife: Charlie lives with his father who never talks to him about anything. The only thing he does for him is give him food and provide him of a bed, which is enough in his eyes, but afcourse very hard for Charlie when he was younger. He doesn't even know who is mother is because his father doesn't wanne talk about her. It is certainly something he is desperate to know about but he also knows he probably never will know anything about.

    How many years attended camp: He joined the camp when he was twelve till fourteen and when he was seventeen he decided to go back as CIT, which he is still.

  18. Name: Jake Fisher

    Age: 18

    Gender: Male

    Sexuality: Straight

    Appearance:
    -blue eyes
    -brown hair
    -dimples
    -tan
    -muscular
    -6'1
    -scar across his side

    Reason for CITing:
    Jake got in trouble with the police after a breaking and entering incident at a nearby theme park in Oregon when he was 16. He has been doing community service for the past couple of years and has been assigned to Camp Marion to finish off his service. Lucky for him, he went to this camp when he was younger so he knows the place very well.

    Personality:
    Jake is a very polite and compassionate guy with quite the troublesome past. More of a wrong place at the wrong time kind of deal. He does like to do daring things and have fun but his mom is very strict after he got in trouble. He is very outgoing, funny, caring and loves being around the young kids like his younger brother.

    tumblr_m9dlqeQ7471qfmj0mo1_r1_500.gif


    BG/Homelife:
    Jake's father left him, his mom, and younger brother when Jake was about 15. He loves his little brother and takes care of him a lot because his mom has to work double time to provide for their family. When he was 16, Jake got in trouble because of a couple of his friends. They had broken into a nearby theme park and were pretty intoxicated. They called up Jake to come pick them up. Jake climbed the fence and found his friends. He had them climb the fence towards his car but then two security guards came over. As he was climbing the fence, one of them grabbed his leg and Jake got caught on the top of the fence, slicing up his side. He had to have surgery, pay a fine and serve time after he healed up. He never ratted his friends out. He hasn't been able to be with his brother too much and his mom has to work all the time. That is also why he is somewhat excited for the camp, the kids remind him of his brother.

    How many years attended camp:
    Ages 12-14
