A siblings’ summer stay

Hey, Camp Folks!

The Everything Summer Camp ‘Share Your Camp Story’ drawing saw an excellent response with nearly 30 entries! That’s why we’re publishing each and every one right here on the Blog! Today I’ve got two submissions from brother and sister Noah and Ella T.! Read about the great time they had at: Check out Camp Eagle Ridge for your next summer sesionI just wrote a Camp Spotlight post about Eagle Ridge on Monday. Here’s what Ella had to say:

“On my last two weeks of camp it was hard to get around because I was on crutches with a broken ankle. I couldn’t do anything athletic and I couldn’t do water sports. I still had a wonderful time at camp. I could do things like arts and crafts, archery (if I was sitting), improv, and cooking.

For theme night instead of being in a group I got to help the counselors and C.I.T’s for capture the flag, I got to ring the bell. On Wednesday, I went on the overnight. My cabin and I pranked Wisdom on Thursday. The dance was AWESOME even though I could not dance. Saturday and Sunday were trip days. The trips I went on were Cook’s Adventure and Bowling. In cook’s adventure we threw warm fuzzies all over Serenity.

Like I said before, I still had a WONDERFUL time at camp. I wish I could go to camp longer next year. This year a lot of my school friends got to share the experience with me. Maybe my school friends will go for two weeks next year.”

And here’s the entry from Noah T.:

“I went to Camp Eagle Ridge. It was fun. I like swimming because we swam out to the swim area in a group and it was fun swimming with my friends. I like going to the rocket in the lake. I didn’t take the swim test so I had to wear a life best but I will probably take the swim test next year. I got my Discovery Patch. I tried three activities I never did before. I did Ultimate Frisbee, kayaking, and Gaga. I also went on the overnight tent trip and it rained. Next year I want to go to camp for two weeks. If I go to camp for two weeks next year I get to go on a weekend trip. I want to go tubing and berry-picking for my trips. I made new friends when I was at camp. I am excited to see them again next year.”

Thanks for these submissions, guys! It’s really great to hear that you two had such great summer camp experiences at Eage Ridge (even despite a broken ankle!). To anyone else who may be interested in Camp Eagle Ridge, check it out right here. And, as always, thanks for reading!
