Hey, Camp Folks!
Our ‘Share Your Camp Story’ Contest at Everything Summer Camp saw an excellent response last year with 60 entries! That’s why we’ve published each and every one right here on the Blog (and why we’re still publishing them)! 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 two more accounts from excited campers right here!
First is this entry from Melanie M. who attended Camp Greystone:
“Camp Greystone ran a favorite recipe contest in fall 2017. I won for my session by submitting sausage macaroni casserole and potato chip cookies. I got to cook for over 500 people at camp with one of my best friends! It was such a neat experience! I loved seeing everyone enjoy a family recipe of mine that was originally my grandfather's. This memory will last me a lifetime.”
Next up is a submission from Lisa R. who wrote in to tell us about her old camp counselor from her days at Camp Natchez in the 80s.
“I went to Camp Natchez from 1982-1986. The summer of 1985 there changed the course of my life forever. I was a 14 year old rather impressionable teenager just looking for a role model. The drama counselor was a beautiful college student who seemed to do everything right. Her hair was perfect, her clothes were trendy, she was very popular. I was very excited to be in the camp play that she was directing. She gave me a lead role and took me under her wing. From there on she was like my big sister. Then, in 1992 I moved to California with her, where I am still living today. She was my maid of honor in my wedding and has helped me through life since the day I met her.”
Thanks for these submissions, Melanie and Lisa! That’s a great that your grandfather’s recipe was able to be shared with so many folks, Melanie. And how cool to have made such a bond with someone as much as you have with your old camp counselor, Lisa! If anybody else is interested in attending one of these camps, put some time aside and look into Camp Greystone for yourself. Camp Natchez is no longer in operation. As always, thanks for reading!
