Accounts from Campers Themselves!

Posted on

Hey, Camp Folks!

The Everything Summer Camp ‘Share Your Camp Story’ drawing saw an excellent response last year with 60 entries! That’s why we’ve published each and every one right here on the Blog! We received a handful that weren’t long enough to qualify for our contest, but we thought we’d at least share them on the Blog. Check out these three accounts from excited campers!

First is this entry from Winnie O. who attended Camp Oneka: Get a good look at Camp Oneka.My camp is awesome because it has been around for 110 years. My grandmom, my mom, and my aunt all camp to this camp too. This was my first year and it was so much fun. Camp Oneka has the best food ever all thanks to Nancy, the cook who has been there since my mommy went to this camp 30 years ago. She cooks the most amazing mashed potatoes and I love her chocolate cake with green icing. My camp is also the best because I learned to play Newcomb, tie a square knot and go sailing. I made new friends from all over the world and can't wait to go back next year.

Next up is a submission about Aliza C. and her time at Camp Agawak: Camp Agawak is more than just talk!

Returning for my fourth summer at Agawak I knew what to expect, I didn’t want or expect change, but it was coming! First session continued as normal. Yet, when second session arrived so did change. My cabin for the past 4 years received new campers. This brought shock as the new campers didn’t know us or anything about camp. We had to show them the ropes to being a camper.

Thanks for these submissions, Winnie and Aliza! Glad to hear camp was full of fun, new experiences for the both of you! If anybody else is interested in attending one of these camps, put some time aside and look into Camp Oneka or look into Camp Agawak for yourself! And, as always, thanks for reading!

Emma and Maya's Summer Camp Stories

Posted on

Hey, Camp Folks!

The Everything Summer Camp ‘Share Your Camp Story’ drawing saw an excellent response from last year’s camp experience with 60 entries! That’s why we’re publishing each and every one right here on the Blog! Today I’ve got two submissions ready to go from Emma C. as well as Maya C.! They’re entries are both on the shorter side, but you can tell there wasn’t any shortage of fun at the camps they attended!

First, take a look at what Emma said about her stay at Pine Cove Camp: Check out this Pine Cove account!

All About Camp

Pine Cove was fun, awesome and amazing. I wish camp was longer because I loved it. My favorite thing at camp was making friends. My favorite activity was swimming. My counselors name was Double Chocolate Trip. My cabin was Wild Flower. I liked Bible study and the jumping pillow. I also liked playing with my friends. My favorite theme night was super hero night.

On the last day, it was sad to leave camp but I still have memories and friends from camp. I look forward to camp next year. I like my new friends. They are like sisters to me.

And here’s the submission from Maya about her experience at French Woods Sports and Arts Center:

Find comraderie at French Woods!I was that camper who cried on day one and cried on the last day because I didn’t want to leave. I fell in love with riding horses and playing piano at. camp. I made friends with girls my age from all over the world China, Spain, Argentina, England and Scotland! There was so much to choose from so I tried archery, live action role play we ran around using foam swords it was really fun. I already asked my mom if I could go back to the winter reunion. I want to go back next year! I heart FWSA.

I’m glad you two had such positive summers last year! If anyone else is interested in one of these camps, check out Pine Cove Camp or look into French Woods Sports and Arts for yourself sometime! And, as always, thanks for reading!

Ride on!

Hello, Riders!

Do you know where you’re heading to camp this summer? If horseback riding is your passion, then perhaps today’s Blog post will introduce you to your next summer camp experience. We’re shining our summer camp spotlight over to the eastern border in the state of New York where we can focus in on Forrestel Riding Camp.

Get those thrills this summer at Forrestel Riding Camp.This beautiful institution sits on an 800-acre, working farm near the western tip of upstate New York—just an hour away from Niagara Falls. There, horse aficionados are provided with miles upon miles of cross-country trails to ride. Enjoy hours of exploration among the birds and the deer and oak trees!

With an obvious focus on horseback riding, Forrestel’s riding facilities include a gorgeous historic barn complex, multiple schooling rings with well-maintained grass footing, a sand ring, a wonderful outdoor hunt course, an exciting cross country-course, and a spacious indoor arena. Expect to do lots of riding when you sign up for a summer stay at Forrestel!

But this camp has more than horses! Offering a slew of traditional summer camp activities besides horseback riding, you can also enjoy Archery, Arts and Crafts, Canoeing/Kayaking, Drawing, Fishing, Pottery, Mountain Biking, Baking, Small Animal Care, Rocketry, Stable Management, Team Sports, Tennis, Woodworking, and more.

Food at Forrestel is grown directly from the farm and cooked on site! You can’t get any more fresh than that! Lunches and dinners have salads and vegetables as well as plenty of meat, pasta, milk, and juice. Cold milk and fresh fruit are offered nightly as a pre-bedtime snack!

Girls at Forrestel Riding Camp sleep in large cabin-like tents that are set up on wooden platforms raised off the ground. Typically, tents house six campers and two counselors. Bathroom and showers are nearby. Look into Forrestel Riding Camp for Girls further for your own summer escape and, as always, thanks for reading!
