Nikita Morin likes to dress up.

This week, the 12-year-old took out her mom's makeup brushes to get ready for her Grade 6 graduation. Nikita picked out a white lace dress and her mom curled her hair for the event.

But Nikita's updo won't be staying intact while she's out on the trails at Circle Square Ranch next month.

"I'm excited to meet other people, make new friends and for the horses," said Nikita. "I've loved horses ever since I was super little."

This is Nikita's first summer at Circle Square Ranch, located near Austin, but she is no stranger to camp. Nikita went to Turtle Mountain Bible Camp for the past two years.

"We went there because of the horses, they were the highest criteria," said Nikita's mom, Tracy Morin. "But gas was expensive each way so we're going somewhere closer."

Nikita has fond memories of her stay in the Turtle Mountains.

"At night we used to sing songs, and we used to practise riding the horses in the barn, then we got to go on a trail ride on the last day," she said.

Nikita is looking forward to having new adventures and making new memories this summer.

"I can't wait to go somewhere for a week and be with other people," she said.

If you'd like to help send more kids to camp, please send cheques to the Winnipeg Free Press Sunshine Fund at 302-960 Portage Ave., Winnipeg, MB, R3G 0R4.

Tax receipts will be issued for donations.
