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.
Remember to bring your camp necklace and "Piece Of Camp" (POC) golden ticket back with you! You will find the POC ticket in the magentic word frame we sent home with each camper last summer (see the picture to the right). We will celebrate your return and give you another year bead for your necklace and a special gift in exchange for the POC golden ticket!
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.
