Be brave young man!!! Be Brave!
You'll be amazed by the results.
Let me tell you something, I worked at a summer camp for YEARS. I did all the activities when I was younger as a camper but there were obviously some I did not like (canoeing being primary, arts and crafts being 2nd).
After many years I've actually mastered canoeing (I have my Orca D or whatever the highest level is, I don't care). It is now one of my favorite skills because it allows me to go on canoe trips with my buddies and I can do whitewater and all that!
You never know what will be useful and you never know what you will like. This is an opportunity to learn something and get acquianted.
When I worked at the camp when I was older, all I would talk about is how I wish I got to do all the activities there now (even arts and crafts!) because you NEVER get those kind of free opportunities again.
Take advantage of your time! You only get so much.
