Hey, Camp Fans!
It’s the Everything Summer Camp ‘Share Your Camp Story’ Contest! We’re in full swing for this year, announcing our lucky winners and sharing their stories right here on the Blog. Today, I’m announcing the last of our $50 gift certificate winners! Today, the winner is….
Congratulations, Dana! You won a $50 gift certificate to our one-stop camping gear shop! Dana took a trip down memory lane sending her kids to camp this summer! Read about it in her Contest entry right here:
“Sending the kids off to camp and the stories they brought back so many memories from my days at Camp Echo. Icky deli and bbq night meals, learning how to shave and having shaving parties in the middle of our bunks, woolite parties, being boy crazy, fake break and then finally the BIG break, closing ceremonies and so many other fun memories. One of the most special things we did at Echo was our Friday night shabbat services and the traditions that went along with it. Wearing our clean uniforms, coming down from girls side in silence, dinner (fried chicken, challah and jello) followed by brother/sister night on the back ball fields and then services on infirmary hill with our special poem. Its nights like this that made camp special. They say camp friends are your best friends for a reason. The memories and laughs never fade away no matter how often or little you see your camp friends. E-C-H-O echo echo lets go!!!!!!”
I love this submission, Dana! Thanks for writing in to us. It’s great to read about all the fond memories you still have of Camp Echo. It must be pretty cool to send your kids off for their own summer experience now. I hope their summer stays can *ahem* echo the fun you had back then!
