Hey, Camp Folks!
It's time for another story from our July ‘Share Your Camp Story’ Contest submissions. The coronavirus has had a huge impact on everyone—camp included. And, though many kids were unable to attend, we still wanted your stories. We asked to hear from kids who weren’t able to attend camp this season to record this very unusual time in our world.
Our next submission for our ‘Share Your Camp Story’ Contest comes from Emma W. who wrote in to tell us about her trip to Camp Oneka. Here’s her submission:
“Hi. My name is Emma and I am 10 years old. I was excited to meet new camp friends and play some kickball for the red and white games this summer. Since I couldn’t go to camp I played with my brother a lot. I loved playing outside this summer and exploring in nature. Next year I am excited to spend my Friday nights at the campfire overlooking the lake and swimming all day!!!”
Hi, Emma. Thanks for writing in. What a bummer that you couldn’t attend Camp Oneka and play kickball for the red and white competitions like you had hoped. Good thing you and your brother had each other to play around with in the outdoors and to go exploring together. It’s not the same as summer camp, but it sounds like the two of you kept in the spirit of the season! Cool turtle!
Keep your eyes on the prize of next summer when you can actually go to camp with campfires and the swimming and all the new camp friends you’ll make! It’s sure to be a blast! To everyone else, you can check out Camp Oneka for yourself and, as always, thanks for reading!
