Top 10 Things We Miss While We’re Home

Camp is, undoubtedly, the one thing that’s always on our minds over the year.  Being that it’s our favorite place to spend time, it would only make sense for it to be our favorite thing to think about, whether it be daydreaming in school or doodling on our homework.  As lonely as it may feel sometimes to be a little camp-sick without your camp friends, it always makes us feel better to remember some of the best parts of our summer.  Here’s the Top 10 list of things we miss the most while we’re away from the best place on earth:

1) Waking up next to our best friends

2) Getting to jump in the lake during general swim, especially on those 90 degree plus days

3) Pausing during all of our lunches and dinners to sing songs in the dining hall

4) Wearing our bunkmates’ t-shirts when we get bored of our own

5) Having a s’mores party for evening activity and getting to watch the sunset over the lake

6) Golf cart karaoke on our way from activity to activity

7) Live concerts in the super dome from our best friends that double as our favorite musicians

8) Dressing each other in garbage bags for our rainy-day version of New York Fashion Week

9) Wearing the same blue or gold outfit for four days straight without being told to put it in the laundry

10) Let’s be honest… EVERYTHING!!

We’re here because there’s no place we’d rather be

Yes, it’s almost here. There still might be snow on the ground in Minerva, but I can almost smell it. S’mores, Campfires, those secrets with our bunkmates…basketball, archery, tennis, Color War! And don’t forget about playing air guitar with a tennis raquet. Camp Baco & Camp Che-Na-Wah…What an amazing gift!
