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!

  • I am the Nancy that she is talking about and Camp Oneka is the best place to work and play. The owner is great and the girls make lifelong friends. They have so much fun. For a summer filled with fun and friends come look at Oneka camp for girls!
