Hey, Camp Fans!
It was great to read all the camper submissions we received this year for our ‘Share Your Camp Story’ Contest at Everything Summer Camp. I’m happy to share them with our online community and post each submission right here on the Blog! Besides our ten lucky prize winners, all other entrants received a $20 gift certificate to our online store and get their story published on the Blog, one at a time!
Today’s post is from Emeric D., who wrote in to tell us about his primitive camp experience at Towering Pines Camp. Check out his submission right here:
“I’ve been going to camp since I was 6. This year was my 4th year at Towering Pines in Eagle River, Wisconsin. Camp is my favorite place on earth; I wait all year to meet up again with my camp friends and do my activities, things I don’t get to do anywhere else like sailing, wakeboarding, or skin diving. This year, my favorite camp memory was when our cabin turned into cave men for an evening. First, we took our shirts and shoes off and put coal on our faces. Then, we did our cabin cookout and cooked hot dogs over the open fire. Next, we went into a full on war between cabins. We tried to capture cabin counselors and bring them to our base. It was really fun. We ended the evening with a soap dip in the lake in our underwear.”
Hey, Emeric! How great to hear that you have been returning to camp for so many years! No wonder you keep going back with all the fun stuff you mentioned in your submission. Caveman evening sounds like a really funny night. And your Capture the Cabin Counselor game sounds like a legitimately good game! Like Capture-the-Flag but with humans—cabin counselor humans.
