Hey, Camp Aficionados!
We’ve had our best year yet with the amount of entries you guys supplied us for the annual ‘Share Your Camp Story’ Contest at Everything summer Camp. Your camp stories were fantastic! I’m eager to share them with our online community and post each submission right here on the Blog!
Just yesterday, I completed the announcement of our ten lucky winners who took larger prizes. And now today, I’ll begin sharing the rest of our submissions. All other entrants received a $15 gift certificate to our online store simply for participating, which makes everyone a winner.
The following post is from Carol H. who wrote in to tell us about her grandson’s first camp experience. Here’s her submission:
Get your camping experience in at Camp Seneca Lake!
My name is Carol H. My grandson, Sam P., spent the month of July at Camp Seneca Lake. Sam is 9 years old and this was his first summer at sleepaway camp. Sam was concerned that camp would be boring. It was anything but boring!

Besides the regularly scheduled activities and hobbies, there were dozens of special activities. These included All Camp Programs, Village Nights, Bunk Nights, and Friday and Saturday Shabbat services and programs. All this gave him the opportunity to meet boys and girls of all ages. At home Sam has a little sister Abby, but at camp Sam had a "big brother" named Noah. They really bonded and Sam misses him.

Sam said the food was delicious! I'm sure he tried some new dishes. He seemed so responsible when he came home. He picks out his own clothes every morning and doesn't need to be reminded several times to do what he needs to do.

I went to camp two generations ago and my children went one generation ago. Those camps were heavily scheduled with little time to just play outside in the village with friends. I was so happy that Sam had time to hang out and there were no electronics involved.

Your website is fabulous! Everything we purchased was well priced and excellent quality. I look forward to buying more items for Sam and for Abby who will be old enough to attend Camp Seneca Lake, too.

Thank you so much for this heartfelt entry, Carol! What a joy to hear that summer camp has been such a positive rite of passage for Sam as well as your children and yourself as well! Seneca Lake sounds like a pretty special place and if anyone else would like to check it out closer by clicking here. And as always, thanks for reading!
