Hey, Camp Fans!
For most summer campers, another camp season has come and gone. And now that kids are returning home, they have some time for reflection on the experience they had at camp. We want to hear how it went. Tell us through our ‘Share Your Camp Story’ Contest! It’s seen great participation in previous years and we always enjoy reading over the submissions we get.
I can’t wait to read all the great stories you have from this summer!
Tell us about your most memorable moment or talk about all the great people you met. No matter what you choose to share, we’d love to hear it! Include your first name and the initial of your last name, the name of the camp you visited, and how long you’ve been going to camp. Tell us about the camp you went to and why you think it’s the best! While 150 words will qualify, we’d prefer to see submissions be closer to 250—take your time to really set the camp scene for us.
There’s an endless list of things you could write about for your submission—a list of everything you ate while at camp, for instance. But the best submissions are written about the parts of camp that meant the most to you.
Write about the things you learned at camp. Write about all the friends you made while you were there. Write about how it felt to be away from home. Write about the beautiful landscapes and natural surroundings you saw at camp. Or submit a journal-style entry that chronicles a day in the summer camp life!
Submit your written entry of your time at camp by clicking here. There is no entry fee. If you’re under the age of 18, you’ll need permission from your parent or guardian to participate in this Contest.
And speaking of parents—we certainly love hearing from you as well; so don’t hesitate to enter your own submission if you’d like to share your own story. How did the experience go on your end? Has your kid shown a positive change in character and behavior? How did you cope with your camper being away? Did you learn any lessons? Tell us anything you want—we’re all ears!
