Share Your Camp Story

Entry Form

Not only are kids back from summer camp, but summer camp itself is back! Yes, the vast majority of summer camps are back up and running for the 2021 season after shutting down for the summer along with the rest of the world. I hope you all had a blast with camp reopening this year. And, along with the reopening of camp, comes the reopening of our ‘Share You Camp Story’ Contest!

We can’t wait to hear what a blast you all had this summer! With our return, we’re making just a couple adjustments to the contest. First of all, we’re upping our prizes—including our participatory prize which, as of this year is a $20 Gift Card for our online store! See the rest of our prizes for ten lucky winners below. Secondly, we’ve created the option this year to submit your camp story to us in video format. Tell your camp story to a camera, upload your recorded video to YouTube, and leave a link to your video in place of your written submission!

There’s an endless list of things you can share 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. Take your time to really set the scene for us. Tell us about your most memorable moment or talk about all the great people you met. Maybe you want to write about the camp you went to and why you think it’s the best!

Maybe you want to include what it was like not being able to go to camp last year and how it was to get that opportunity back this summer. Maybe you DID go to camp last year. In that case, how were things different this year? It may be a crummy part of our history, but we ARE recording history with these camp stories.

You can watch the Share Your Camp Story Announcement on YouTube right here.

Need ideas on what to write about? You can check out other camper's stories here.
