I was on a local swim team and Linda, who was 5 yrs older than me, acted as my guide and big sister who always scolded me but was caring to me. We always cheered each other at swim meets and one time we went camping with boys in one tent and girls in the other. At this meet I was the only 12 year old boy qualified for this special championship meet. I was still excited to go camping and I had my own tent. Linda still became the chaperone, according to the parents, and she was in charge
