Summer Camp Craze

Summer+Camp+Craze

  To fill their school break with lasting memories, people of all ages attend summer camps to either be a camper or to lead younger people.

  Summer camps are meant for making friends, trying new things, and having an overall blast. There are all kinds of summer camp ranging from focusing on sports, culinary skills, academics, and the overall outdoors. This range makes for all kinds of unforgettable memories. “The one I go to is at Blythe Park which is a thirty-minute drive from my house. It has this little art hut where you can make bracelets and paint on vinyl. I love to make lanyards with the kids. One year, when me and my friend were assistant counselors in training, we were in this canoe, and we kept splashing each other with the paddles. I’m sure all the other groups thought we were annoying. She was in jeans, so it was disgusting all over her jeans, but I thought it was fun,” Lilah George said.

Returning to the same summer camp is a tradition by many campers who enjoyed their time the previous year. Some even come back as counselors to relive their fond childhood memories. “I usually go to a camp during the summer that I help my parents run at Willis Tucker, and I also act as a youth counselor at a scout camp on the peninsula. I’ve been going to summer camp since I was going into second grade, which will make this my tenth year of going to summer camp. I love returning to see old friends and make new ones. You meet so many different kinds of people that you never feel lonely,” Logan Davis said.
