Hello, Camp Fans!
We loved the response we got to our annual ‘Share Your Camp Story’ Contest at Everything Summer Camp! It started in 2018, but we’re still going strong publishing each submission here on the Blog. Enjoy these fantastic stories as much as we do!
Today’s post comes from Lori C. who wrote in to tell us about her son’s fun camp stay at Camp Westmont. Get a look at today’s submission about his stay:
“My son just came home from camp today and he couldn't stop talking about all the fun he had. From learning to swim at the pool and then being able to swim in the lake. Playing Tennis and on the Ropes Courses. All the friends he had made and what he had accomplished during the summer. Bobby received two awards from camp. One was the kindness award for his bunk division and the other was an award for swimming. Before camp started my son had a very hard time trying to learn how to swim, but the staff at camp helped him be less fearful and he learned! He was very fearful of almost everything he did or didn't want to do. But as he's telling me everything he did at camp this summer, I am very grateful for the experience he has gained. He said he rides when they went on their trips, he learned to ride his bike without training wheels, he climbed the rock wall, and I was told by one of his group leaders that he is one of the best tennis players in his division! Again I am very grateful for this opportunity that he had. He can't stop talking about this summer and is already talking about going back to Camp Westmont next year!”
The magic of camp at work! Thanks for the submission, Lori. It’s wonderful to hear what positive effects the summer camp experience has had on Bobby! No wonder he’s so eager to return! Camp must have been such a blast! Enjoy the lasting effects, Lori! For anybody else interested in checking out Camp Westmont, be sure to check them out for yourself and, as always, thanks for reading!
