Awesome!!! Congratulations, Arnold. You’re our grand prize winner!!! Arnold wrote in to tell us about his experience at Camp Mowglis. Read his account of the fun camp stay right here on today’s Blog post:
“This was my first time going to camp and I was feeling nervous. I didn’t know anyone except one friend. I have never even visited the camp before so I didn’t know what it would be like. It is a 7 week camp, but my mom signed me up for only the first 4 weeks. After only 2 weeks I wrote my mom a letter to ask if I could stay for the whole 7 weeks and she said yes! I wanted to stay because I really enjoyed my time at Camp Mowglis. I did activities like archery, tennis, canoeing, mountain biking, arts and crafts, hiking, camping, and swimming, but the activity I loved the most was archery. I even got a trophy for winning the Junior Fencing Tournament. I can’t wait to go back to camp next year. I hope I will earn some ribbons for some of the activities.”
Thanks for this great submission, Arnold! We’re so glad to hear how much you loved your time at Camp Mowglis. Seven weeks is a LONG time to be away from home—especially for your first time away at summer camp. But the camp life is a persuasive animal once the hook is set. Way to go embracing your time away from home! Have fun in the years to come!
