Hi!!! I’m Ryleigh!! This upcoming summer will be my twelfth at camp and I wouldn’t miss it for the world. I am twelve years old and I think camp is amazing (besides the fact that my parents help run it). I think camp is really special in a lot of ways. For starters, I love how you can be whoever you want to be, and nobody gets bullied or pushed around. Another thing that makes camp so special is that nobody cares what you look like, everyone ends up sorta dirty (or sweaty) by the end of the first day, so it doesn’t really matter. It is really nice to just be you (or Bob or Joe or Jack or Jill).
If you haven’t been to camp before, you should try it out!!! It’s a truly one-of-a-kind experience!! One of the things that I like most about camp is the people and the animals.
Everyone is always so nice that it makes you feel at home, even if it already is your home. Sometimes I feel like I’m a better person when I’m at camp also because I’m surrounded by so many kind people. If you are reading this (which you probably are)
I’ll see you soon!!!!!!!
Ryleigh! I remember when you were still a babe-in-arms at camp, as an alumni from 1999 to 2002 (if I remember correctly!). So glad to see you so tall and grown up, and enjoying your camp experience to this day!
