When I think “camp,” I think of the same words each time; friends, family, home, love. I think of the cabins, the lake, and the campgrounds. Put together, all these things create my summer home, my Camp Wenonah.
Over the years, I have grown to love camp more and more. Some may ask “why do you love camp so much?” and for that there is no simple answer. To me, camp is a home, with a family that loves you unconditionally. It is a home in which you are never left alone or without anything to do. A home where you don’t want to sleep or even blink, because when you do, you miss so much, so you try your hardest to live every moment.
I love camp and I am counting down the days until I arrive there, returning home but at the same time feeling like I never left.

Camp Wenonah means having fun everyday. I really like their choices of activities and food. My favourite activities are rock climbing, art and archery. They taught me how to shoot an arrow and I even hit the bulls-eye two times. I was really happy that I hit the bulls eye. Art is really fun, we made our own chia pet that grew grass hair from his head. His name was “grassy”. I also liked rock climbing a lot, it was really fun. I liked the
obstacle course one the best. I liked the morning dip, it really wakes you
up. My favourite meal was the hamburgers that the chefs made. It had green peppers, tomatoes, onions, lettuce and red peppers. They were so good.
I can’t wait to go back this summer.

Have you ever had one of those moments, where you don’t care about what happens next, or why it happens? Where you don’t have any worries in the back of your mind about school, or conflicts? Where you don’t want to be anywhere but where you are, you don’t want to be anyone but who you are, and you don’t want to feel anything but what you feel in that exact moment. Where so many things make sense, yet you are fine with not knowing about the things that don’t. Where you are completely engulfed in that particular moment and surrounded your own bliss which is magnified by the bliss of those around you. Imagine being in this state, but being able to feel it for a month. THIS, is what Camp Wenonah is to me.
