Does anyone remember what it was like going to summer camp with your friends?
Well I do and it brings me back to my childhood when I would go to camp in my home town. It was called 3 day camp and it was so much fun. No parents, fun counselors, lots of food and activities, campfire stories and bonding with friends! We slept in bunk beds and stayed up for hours talking! I miss those days! Now that I think about…we should create a camp like that just for adults! How much fun would that be….outdoor activities, comfort food, friends, campfires stories and songs!
Today I sent my oldest daughter, Ella, off to summer camp for 5 nights/6 days! She’s been going to camp since she was 5 years old, but I have to admit, it doesn’t get less emotional the older she gets! Yes, I held back tears but tears of joy! She was so excited and I can 100% understand why! She’s going to love the time with friends up north!
Take time today to appreciate the small things like summer camps, counselors, campfires and friends! Today, let go of your daily stresses and reflect back to the good old days of summer!
Aww…what a wonderful memory!
