Hey, Camp Lovers!
We love summer camp too. That’s why we love hearing your stories from camp in our annual ‘Share Your Camp Story’ Contest at Everything Summer Camp. Your stories were fantastic and it’s such a fun time reading through them! Get a look at each submission as I post them one-by-one right here on the Blog!
Today’s post comes from Catherine B. who wrote in to tell us about her second year at Camp Fern in the Piney Woods of Texas. Get a look at her submission about this last summer at camp: “I am 8 years old and this was my second year at Camp Fern! Last year I only stayed for two weeks, but this year I got to stay for a whole month and I had the best time ever in my life. I had old friends in my cabin and also new friends. My favorite activities were riding and skiing. I even got a ribbons at banquet for being the most improved in skiing and the best overall in skiing. I've never gotten awards like that before. It made me feel really good. Camp Fern is the best place in the world. They teach me so many things. They teach me about nature and how to take care of it. They teach me how to do new things. They teach me that I can do things I never thought I could. And we have lots of fun! Before I went to camp, I had never spent the night away from home. I'm so glad my mom and dad let me go to camp because now I know that I can do anything and learn anything. My counselors keep me safe and are so nice and are kind of like my mom when I get a little homesick. Camp Fern is so amazing. On the last night of camp we write our wishes down on paper and then make them into sails for little paper boats. We light candles and send our wish boats out across the lake. It is so special and beautiful when the lighted boats are out on the water. My boat made it all the way across the lake, so I know that my wishes will come true thanks to Camp Fern! When I grow up, I want to be a teacher. That way I can still come to Camp Fern as a counselor in the summer. I love Camp Fern!!!”
