How many days until next summer?

You might have expected your son or daughter running to you as they came off the bus, and your family catching up together as you drive away in the car. But, if your child arrives home next week asking for their schedule to be posted every morning, or for the family to line up before every meal, you have entered a new phase of re-entry for your camper. There’s tons of advice given to parents about how to handle their departing campers, but what about the children that are suffering from “camp sickness” ?

You will be delightfully rested from the summer while your children were away, so now is your chance to shine in the kitchen, “Camp Style”.

Have the hot chocolate ready in the morning, break open a box of Ellios pizza, and don’t forget a side of peanut-butter with chopped up ice-cream sandwiches for the CNW girls (feel free to sing songs to your kids too!).

Start a chant when you have milk and cookies (but you can really start a chant for just about everything)

No need to dress up, but blue & white on Friday night and Saturday morning, and also if you venture out together as a family. Wear jerseys, and play a basketball game against the family next door.

Don’t forget Super Clean-up and personal inspection is on Friday. (We’ve got this routine going. Hopefully, you can keep it up)

This is your chance to go thru their things, throw out the old water-bottles (if they actually made it home), and start picking thru the trunk, once it’s delivered.

Don’t be surprised if they only want to talk to their “Camp Friends”.

Don’t worry.

You are still the most important people in their lives.

Slowly but surely, you’ll start to recognize your child.

Aside from some physical changes, and the “camp sickness” that they might have come home with, we hope that they’ve come home with some extra confidence and independence.

It’s been a great summer. Your kids did great, and so did you. Enjoy your re-entry together.

Just remember…be flexible.

And also… there’s always the option of installing a camp bell in every home!

Camp Habits that Stick with us at Home

Coming home in August with our camp wrists and flip flop tans makes for a difficult adjustment—especially in terms of our summer habits! For a little while, we find ourselves telling jokes to our friends at home that may make no sense, or casually utilizing camp lingo in our everyday

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!
