Recalling a Camp Stay like just Yesterday

Posted on

Hey, Camp Fans!

We were very happy with our turnout this year for our ‘Share Your Camp Story’ Contest that was held here at Everything Summer Camp. We’re excited to post each of your entries right here on the Blog now! To follow our ten lucky winners of larger prizes, all other entrants received a $15 gift certificate to our online store! Today’s post is from Kristin B., who wrote in to tell us about one summer camp experience at Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp some years back. Here’s her story: 

“When I was in 8th grade, I won a scholarship to attend Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp in Twin Lake, Michigan! This was quite some years ago, but it was a long ride in the car without air conditioning! We lived in Wisconsin, and when we arrived at camp, there was a nice sign at the entrance. The driveway was very long, tree-lined, and those trees were incredibly tall! I remember exactly how it looked, cabins in the woods, each named for an early explorer. The cabins were traditional, and set up like a bunk house. The buildings were all very similar, everything was brown, or made with logs. The lake, Blue Lake, was very pretty and secluded! It was at this camp that I made many friends, and it was a music camp. I was blown away at how much we learned in 12 days! Incredible music, and even better friends and the best memories! How I wish I could go back and do it all again! I have my own family now, and my kids absolutely LOVE to go to camp! I am delighted, and love to see all four my children make their own memories! I just paid 3 out of 4 deposits for next summer, and my high schooler will be attending band camp for the 3rd year! Delighted!”


Woohoo! Fantastic, Kristin! That’s so cool that summer camp has had such a lasting impression on you and you can still see the cabins in the woods. That’s great that you’re raising little campers themselves who will grow up one day to have such fond memories just like you. You may not be able to go back and relive your camp days, but sending your children off for their own camp experience is the next best thing! Thanks for writing into us, Kristin.
