Hey, Camp Aficionados!
Your camp stories for this year’s annual ‘Share Your Camp Story’ Contest at Everything summer Camp were fantastic! I’m eager to share them with our online community and post each submission right here on the Blog!
Last week concluded the announcements of our ten lucky winners who took larger prizes. And now today, I’ll begin sharing the rest of our submissions. All other entrants receive a $15 gift certificate to our online store simply for participating, making everyone a winner.
The following post is from Katie P. who wrote in to tell us about her time away at Camp Merrie Woode this summer. Here’s her submission:
“One night me and my friend got up around 4:27 am to the sounds of rustling I quickly shined the light out of the window and she saw a bear, the bear’s name is Margaruite, I rushed over to see if she was telling the truth and she was. A quick reminder to help you with this story is that me and my friend go by dumb and dumber because we are both over-the-top stupid. I got out of bed rushed to the bathroom and came back to put the trunk in front of the door we didn’t want to wake anybody up and we also didn’t want to be killed for the rest of the night. As we were walking back to our beds my friend tripped on a suitcase and then to my foot making her break her nose and it started gushing blood. We tried to clean it up the best we could but obviously we are dumb and dumber so we didn’t know much on how to fix it. By the way none of the rest of the cabin was awake. We shoved a tampon up her nose and called it a day. We got back into one bed together instead of getting into each of our own beds by ourself. We thought this would be the safest way to sleep. For the rest of the night we were scared so much we couldn’t stop shivering. This was one of the funniest and most terrifying moments of my life!”
You and your friend had quite a frantic night at camp! I’m glad that nobody got hurt too bad and nobody got eaten by a bear either! Thanks for your story, Katie! You had a number of us laughing pretty hard here around the office! How very resourceful of you two to use this hygienic bathroom product on (or should I say ‘in’) your friend’s nose. Also, Margaruite is a wonderful bear name!
If you’re interested in checking out Camp Merrie Woode, give them a closer look sometime. And, as always, thanks for reading!
