Even though your have been to camp before, here are a few tips and reminders to make sure this summer is just as good or better than the last time you came to camp.
- Be prepared for camp to be a little different. Although many
of the same things you love will probably be there, every year camp
changes a little bit. For example, your favorite counselor from last
summer might not be there, but we will have lots of cool new
counselors. Even though camp will be a little different, it can
still be just as good or even better!
- Returning campers of all ages can experience “homesickness.”
Even the camp counselors sometimes feel homesick. Share how you’re
feeling with your cabin mates and with your counselors. You can also
try helping a first time camper who feels homesick, sometimes
helping someone else makes you feel better too!
Campers who are returnees are often “the experts” at camp. We encourage you to help other campers who may be new or just might not remember everything.
