Hey, Camp Folks!
The Everything Summer Camp ‘Share Your Camp Story’ drawing saw an excellent response with about 30 entries! That’s why we’ve published each and every one right here on the Blog! Today I’m posting the last of our submissions. 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.
First is this entry from Cassie S. who attended Wisconsin Badger Camp:
“I enjoyed participating in nature, arts & crafts, swimming, music, camp songs, going on a Camp out, going for hayrides, badger ball, meeting new friends and my old friends and meeting all the new staff and the staff that was at camp last summer! I had so much fun at camp during week 10 that I didn’t want to leave. I cried when it was time for me to leave to go home.”
Next up is a submission about Caleb S. and his time at Canadian Camp Ramah:
“I am writing this on behalf of my 9 year old son. His name is Caleb and he had an amazing month at camp this summer! The highlight for him was learning how to waterski. He was able to get up on two skis and to cross over the wake. He also made some great new friends and showed incredible independence. It was such a pleasure and honor to be able to welcome him home after such a transformative summer. There is absolutely no experience outside of summer camp that brings kids together as friends for a lifetime. Thanks Camp Ramah in Canada!”
Then we got word from Avery B.’s mother about her daughter’s time at Camp Greystone:
“1610 miles in 2 ½ days to pick Avery up at camp was totally worth every second in the car when she talks about how much closer she feels to God and how awesome her counselor’s devotions were! Thank you, Camp Greystone for loving my baby and helping her grow in her faith as well as so many other ways. Maybe next year she will run up and hug me, instead f crying that she doesn’t want to leave…but I’m not holding my breath!”
We also heard from Louie B. who attended Camp Beber:
“My favorite thing of camp was hobbies. I love hobbies because you get to do what you want. I liked to do waterskiing and aqua park. I liked the cabin activities also; those were fun. I liked Makor Mania. The best part was the camp out! I can’t wait for next year at Beber Camp and three day trips!”
Mia I. wrote in to us to tell us about her big swing at Camp JCA Shalom:
“I was afraid I would fall. So high up. I was ready to pull, that red rope. Finally,123…tug. There! I did it. I did not regret it. The giant swing was soooooooo fun. I am definitely doing that again.”
And, last but not least, we have a camp submission from Lainee A. who went to The Pines Catholic Camp:
“On the blob I went with my legs straight and I was supposed to a L Jump and then I landed on my Nose.”
A thank you to everyone for submitting and sharing your camp memories with us, Camp Fans! It’s great to hear from all of you. Look into these camps for yourselves if you’re interested and, as always, thanks for reading!
