What did Devon Do?

Posted on

Hey, Camp Fans!

We were thrilled to get the turnout that we did this year for our annual Everything Summer Camp ‘Share Your Camp Story’ Contest! Your camp stories were great! I had such a fun time reading through them and we’ve been having a blast publishing them here on the Blog to share them with all our readers online! We’re posting each submission with their own individual post right here on the Blog!

Since I’ve finished announcing our ten lucky winners who took larger prizes in September, I’ve moved on to the rest of your submissions. The following post is from Devon P. who wrote in to tell us about his summer stay at Camp Sloane. Check it out: 


“My name is Devon and I’ve been going to Camp Sloane YMCA for 4 years. My story is kind of unique because I’m a 3rd generation camper at Camp Sloane, my mom and uncles went and so did my grandma. My sister who also submitted her story goes to camp with me and went one year before I did. My favorite thing to do at camp is water skiing. I started water skiing 4 years ago and have done it for at least 2 weeks every year since. This year one of my biggest accomplishments was being able to get up on one ski and stay up for 3 minutes. One of my favorite things about camp is the friendships I make every year. This year my best friend at camp was Desmond and we had a lot of fun together. We had some of our activities together and hung out during our village time. My tent was also awesome and I made friends with a lot of them. My tent counselors' names were Blessing and Mario(Session 2) and Dean and Marcell(Session 3). It was cool to have them as counselors because they are all international and I learned a lot about where they come from and their cultures. I love coming back to Camp Sloane year after year because of the people and the fun that we have every day. I'm already signed up for Summer ‘23 and I’m so excited.”


Camp Sloane must be one amazing camp if it has your family going back summer after summer and generation after generation! It’s great to hear that your confidence on water skis is building throughout the years—sounds pretty brave to manage yourself on just a single ski. Well done! Along with great friendships, it sounds like you always get the most out of your summers at Camp Sloane!

For everyone else, give Camp Sloane a closer look. Check it out for yourself by clicking here and, as always, thanks for reading!
