The ABCs of summer camp start with Anticipation.
Anticipation starts every spring, if not every winter, as the milestones of the year roll by, and camp friends check in to celebrate them and count the days left.
But if you’re a first-time camper—or, really, a camper of any age—there's no anticipation quite like the night before camp.
Campers come in all sizes and stages, from all walks of life and for all kinds of reasons. Some come once and move on; many return every summer. Some kids grow into counsellors, to pay forward what camp has given them.
Some campers grow up at camp over a lifetime, and in their hearts, even years later, find they never really leave.
What all campers have in common, though, is they’ll all know this feeling: of the night before you go, the night before it starts, and the night before you learn everything that happens next.
