My Camp Experience

My experience here at Camp Downer is so far amazing. I first of all just love camp, especially sleep-away. You make tons of new friends and sometimes get a Staff Aide who are usually very cool. And the food is awesome!

I walk through the woods
And enter my cabin
I shove my pillow
Onto a top bunk
And look around
At the autographed beds
And giggling girls
Reuniting from other years
“Hi, ya wanna play tetherball?”
a girl says
I smile and walk over

Rainy Days

Today it rained the whole day. I usually don’t like rainy days because they’re really boring and there’s nothing to do. But one of the reasons I really like Camp Downer is that it doesn’t matter what the weather is like because there’s always something to do. The rain makes everyone think more creatively and you can do things that you wouldn’t do on a normal camp day—like crab soccer or storytelling. I really had fun today, like I do everyday, at camp. The rain wasn’t really a bad thing because it was just as fun as a sunny day.
