I wrote my parents that I wanted to stay longer
By Frank Jones
Stephanie: I went for two weeks, but then I wrote my parents that I wanted to stay longer.
Stephanie's mother, Lynne: Her father didn't want her to stay, but (at parents' day after two weeks) she burst out crying because she really, really wanted to stay. And all the little girls from her cabin were hanging on her and pleading for her to stay.
Stephanie: So I was allowed to stay an extra week because I really liked the camp and I met new friends. You learn about nature and how to start a fire and how to set up a tent. I like archery best-I'm good at it. We went on a canoe trip. I liked sleeping in the tent-we heard owls.
Lynne: I could not have been happier. The experience you want them to have is exactly that. Although you want them to miss you, you also want them to be so happy they stay. Now she keeps in touch with the girls by e-mail, including one girl in Venezuela. (Stephanie was a first-time camper.)
