Hey, Camp Fans!
The end of summer’s always bittersweet, but year-after-year, we’re excited here at Everything Summer Camp to keep with our traditional ‘Share Your Camp Story’ Contest! We saw an excellent response with your submissions since we’ve upped the ante this year, making the grand prize $250.
Today we have the last of our $25 winners. And that winner is….
Congratulations, Will! You’re our fourth $25 prize winner! Will had a great summer stay at Falling Creek Camp this year as he has for the last three years as well! Read all about it in his entry right now:
Hi! I'm Will Henry and my summer camp is Falling Creek in the mountains of North Carolina. I just finished my 4th summer at camp, and it was better than ever!
My favorite activity at camp was paddling. After a few lessons on strokes, we headed down the Green River in canoes. It was fun! I loved navigating the rapids. Some were challenging but after I made it through, I felt proud of myself. I sure didn't want to fall in and get wet because the water is cold!
Camp activities are great but what I love most is the friendships I've made over the years. Each year, I catch up with my camp buddies from all over the United States. I hope to stay close to these boys forever. Maybe some day we will end up in college together or back at Falling Creek as counselors!
I pack all of my clothes and gear in my Happy Camper trunk. My trunk rocks! I'm the oldest of 5 kids so to stay organized, my mom has color-coded each of my siblings' stuff. My color is blue, so guess what color my trunk is? Yep, it's blue! Each year, as I collect stickers when I travel and play sports, I add them to my trunk. I love looking at my trunk and instantly seeing reminders of my life's adventures!
Thanks Everything Summer Camp for keeping us well-supplied for our summer days!
Thanks again for your submission, Will! We’re delighted to hear that summer camp was such a thrill and brought you pride. It’s so cool that you have friends from all over that you can see at least once a year! Glad you love that blue Happy Camper!
