Hey, Camp Folks!
The Everything Summer Camp ‘Share Your Camp Story’ drawing saw an excellent response last year with 60 entries! That’s why we’ve published each and every one right here on the Blog! We received a handful that weren’t long enough to qualify for our contest, but we thought we’d at least share them on the Blog. Check out these three accounts from excited campers!
First is this entry from Lily O. who attended Camp Rim Rock:
“This was my first year at camp. My favorite part was riding horses and learning songs to sing at camp. My mom sent us bracelets with our cabin and year on them and my bunkmates loved them. I can't wait to be a returner next year and teach the songs to other campers. I loved getting letters from home. I cried a little in the beginning, but I was ok. I can't wait to go again!”
Next up is a submission about Rylan C. and his time at Falling Creek Camp:
“I went to camp for the 2nd year this summer and loved it! I had the best cabin EVER and my counselors were so cool. I did some horseback riding but spent most time doing archery. I hit the bullseye several times. I missed home last year but not this year. I want to go back next summer for even longer. Falling Creek Camp is so awesome and beautiful. My cabin overnight was great and the campfires were so fun. I was sad when camp was over but I think about next summer everyday. I can't wait to see my friends and what cabin I will be in. I think next year I really want to work on kayaking and rock climbing. I hope I get to go to camp every summer because I get to be independent and make my own decisions.”
Thanks for these submissions, Lily and Rylan! It sounds like the both of you have many years of summer camp ahead of you! If anybody else is interested in attending one of these camps, put some time aside and look into Camp Rim Rock or look into Falling Creek Camp for yourself! And, as always, thanks for reading!
