Lose your V-card? Did drugs for the first time? Got pregnant? Got arrested? Summer camp is full of fun memories…
Slacker went to a religious camp his entire life. His first memory is when he was a camper, it was the second day of camp and he saw a guitar in the lodge so picked it up and started playing. When he turned around all the camp counselors surrounded him telling him he was going to be in the camp band. He says he was the only kid in the band. Every time kids went out to play he was called into rehearsal…there goes any social life he planned on having.
His second camp memory was from when he was a counselor. He was on a hike and lost a kid so he went back to look for him. Sure enough, the kid took a short cut back to the camp and they had to send out a search team to look for Slacker.
Lil D says he remembers a day in summer camp when some kid brought in his favorite Kermit the frog stuffed animal and he saw and wanted it…so he took it and walked away.
What is your best summer camp story?
My camp once took us on a camping trip into the woods with one major rule – no food. That summer however I was obsessed with these granola bars and convinced my friend to hide a couple with me in our hiking packs. Needless to say that rule is there for a reason…bears sniffed out our camping site and I have denied those bars were mine to this day.
