Share Your Camp Story

Share Your Camp Story - Entry Form

While some families were fortunate enough to send their kids to summer camp, many of you had to hunker down and make the most of this summer. We’d love to know what you did with your summer season. Avoiding overnight accommodation, many families opt for what some have coined a stay-cation or a holi-stay. These sort of vacations give families time for leisure activities as well as day trips to local parks or hiking trails.

For the month of September ‘Share Your Camp Story’ Contest, let us know what you did with your family. Were you fortunate enough to spend whole days in your backyard pool or hot tub? Did you hold board game tournaments in your household? Did you enjoy sitting around a campfire or set up a tent for backyard camping? Maybe you started your own family summer reading challenge.

Entries from parents and grandparents are welcome as well. Please include your first name and your last name’s initial, the name of the camp you planned on attending, and how long you’ve been going to camp. You only need 150 words to qualify, however, we’re looking for submissions closer to 250.
