Hey, Camp Fans!
We were elated to receive over 30 entries for our ‘Share Your Camp Story’ Contest here at Everything Summer Camp. We’re super eager to share with all our readers by publishing each one of the submissions right here on the Blog! There were seven lucky winners to our contest and everyone else who submitted received a $15 gift certificate to our website! Today’s post is from Ailey W., who wrote in to tell us about her first two-week camp stay at Camp Mystic.
“This Summer I went to camp at Camp Mystic in Hunt, Texas. It was my first time to go to a two week long camp. For my birthday I got a beautiful, new trunk from Everything Summer Camp Store. When I got to camp there was no air conditioning. The camp had two tribes called Tonkawas & Kiowas. I drew out of a hat to pick my tribe and I got Tonkawa. I got to pick five activities and I chose Camp Craft, Archery, Fishing, Swimming & Horseback Riding. My favorite was Fishing. On the first day I caught a Bass and on the second day I caught a small fish. One day I even caught a seven pound catfish, but it broke the line. Another thing I enjoyed was watching a movie one rainy night. We watched Shark Boy & Lava Girl. It was so good but I didn’t get to see all of the movie so I was disappointed but I am fine with it now. Thank you Everything Summer Camp store for getting me ready for camp!”
Glad to hear you had so much fun at Camp Mystic Ailey! Sounds like you’re pretty good at fishing. I’m sure you’ll be telling the tale of the catfish who got away for years from now. Camp certainly is a great time! Check out Camp Mystic to see if it might be a good match for you. And, as always, thanks for reading!
