Hey, Camp Fans!

Your camp stories were great! I had a great time reading through them all and now I’m excited to share them with all our readers online and post each submission right here on the Blog! I’ve finished announcing our ten lucky winners who took larger prizes and we’ve now moved on to the rest of your submissions.

The following entry is from Sam P. who wrote in to tell us about his camp experience at Camp Seneca Lake. Sam is one of the grandkids of whom Carol H. wrote about in her contest entry. Here is Sam’s submission:


Hello, my name is Sam P. and I'm 12 years old. I just returned from my third summer at Camp Seneca Lake. Last summer I was not able to go to camp and I was saddened and disheartened. However, this summer I got my chance to be in oldest Cayuga and I had the time of my life! Cayuga is the name of my village. The boys in my village are entering grades 4 - 7. Next summer I will be in Mohawk village.

At camp I got the chance to participate in two Mass programs (camp wide competitions with 4 teams), one Color War (red versus blue, I was on red and red won), and C-day (Cayuga Day). Before COVID we took off campus trips on C-day. One year I went to Corning Museum of Glass and Watkins Glen State Park. This year we stayed on campus and had tournaments, played fun games, and ate pizza and ice cream.

All of these activities were incredibly fun! I also just enjoyed hanging out in the village with my friends. In the end, I am so grateful that I was able to experience this amazing summer and have the time of my life.


Wonderful, Sam! Thanks for sending us this piece about your summer in the Cayuga village of Camp Seneca Lake! You make it sound like a blast there. I hope your team did well in the Color War. The field trips from years past sound pretty fun, but who can say no to pizza and ice cream?! Glad you had such a fun time, Sam. I hope you have even more fun next year in Mohawk! For anybody else interested in Camp Seneca Lake, you can give it a closer look by clicking here and, as always, thanks for reading!
