What is Summer Camp?
This is probably the most asked question that we get when working for a summer camp agency. A lot of people, when they think of summer camp, they think of Parent Trap or Camp Rock and let's be clear, they aren’t wrong to think that way.
Summer Camp is a magical place full of fun activities, maybe not quite activities like fencing that you’ve seen on Parent Trap, but other fun, risk-taking activities like high and low ropes courses, canoeing, swimming, camp crafts, and so much more to keep everyone entertained.
Summer Camp is a place where belting out a song isn’t unheard of, in fact, it's ENCOURAGED that you sing at the top of your lungs, as much as possible!
So get those singing lessons in people, because it's your turn to perfect being able to sing
“Little Red Wagon”
Summer Camp is a place where you can dress up and be silly and no one will look at you funny, they just accept that it is part of Camp Life! So far I’ve been an Alien from “Toy Story”, an artist, a fairy, a mermaid, a Fashion Show Host and a pea in a pod as part of the “Veggigang”! There really is no limit to how far we go to show these kids that we’re all in.
Summer Camp is a place where you can have cool days off with your friends living your best American life. Summer means baseball season! Do you know what baseball means? A lot of chanting, a lot of chilli cheese fries and a lot of sun and fun with friends!
You get to have that experience! And let me tell you, it is such an amazing and fun experience to get to have.
Summer Camp is FOURTH OF JULY! It's celebrating with fireworks and festivals. It's going to parades and cheering on the local city or town. Its putting glitter on your face, buying a load of American Flags, getting to go to a fireworks displays like Red, White, and Boom and just have fun celebrating the country you get to work and travel in.
Summer Camp is celebrating birthdays in THE MOST obnoxiously fun way possible! *A few camp counselors grab some boom whackers and run to the birthday person*
TODAY IS A BIRTHDAY, I WONDER FOR WHO, IT MUST BE FOR SOMEBODY HERE IN THIS ROOM, SO LOOK ALL AROUND YOU FOR SOMEBODY WHO! IS! LAUGHING AND SMILING! MY GOODNESS IT'S YOU! AROUND THE TABLES YOU MUST GO, YOU MUST GO, YOU MUST GO, ROUND THE TABLES YOU MUST GO, IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY!
*yes we did smash the cake into a camp counselors
face, and no, we don’t feel bad about it*
Summer Camp is inviting the kids in on the first day with big smiles! You’re about to spend time with these campers for the next week or two, so being bright, bubbly and smiley on the first day gives them a calming impression - especially if they’re a first-time camper! It's getting to see the campers drive excitedly up the drive-way with the exact same big bright beam on their face that you had when you first pulled into the camp property! It's singing the camp song to them as they drive past getting them well and truly prepared to sing it loud and proud throughout their time at your camp!
Summer Camp has really fun and special opening and closing campfires!
Opening campfire is possibly the greatest experience you can have at camp because as counselors you get to be silly when performing skits. You get to sing all the fun songs you’ve learned over the last few weeks of staff training. You get to see the campers smiles grow wider as they get excited for the week ahead as they watch their counselors sing and act like there's no tomorrow!
Closing campfire is one of the most special times you’ll spend at camp. It is the best time to reflect over the week or two that you’ve had with the campers and the other counselors. Closing campfire is a time to share stories and memories of the last few weeks you’ve spent together with everyone else on camp. Closing campfire is a time to sing slow songs and cherish the last 12 or so hours you have around all of the other campers and counselors. Closing campfire is probably one of the saddest parts about camp, but also one of the best parts.
Summer Camp is making friendships with people from far and wide, but knowing that you will be friends for life!
Summer Camp is an amazing, unforgettable and life-changing experience!
