Summer Camp

PSR Logo
I am going to camp for the first time this summer. It's a sleep-away camp and I will spend a whole week away from my mom and dad and brother for the first time in my life.

 I am nervous and a little scared about it but mostly I am excited.

I have been to six sleepovers at friends' houses, so I have done almost as many nights away from home as this will be, but those were not in a row. This is seven straight nights!

A good thing that will make me less nervous is that a lot of my school friends are going so there will be lots of people I know there. I won't be lonely because of that but I still might miss home.

But there are so many things to do that I might not miss home much after all!

There is going to be hiking, kayaking, rafting and lots of swimming. I am excited because swimming is so fun, and rafting looks like fun, but kayaking is kind of scary because the boats seem too skinny. The hiking will be on trails and in caves. I love to explore so the caves will be cool.

We sleep in cabins and mom said they will be kind of dirty so I will have to get used to that. Dad says my room is already kind of dirty so I should already be used to it!

If it rains we will get wet and even at night it might get damp even in the cabins. But I like thunderstorms at home, so I guess I will find out if I like them in cabins in the woods too.

I love arts and crafts, and there will be lots of that at camp. I am excited to make stuff for everyone at home, but mostly excited to make stuff for me that I can show my friends at school once I get back.

Camp, here I come!
