i just got home from my fourth year of sleepaway camp and i love it!!!!!!!! camp is always my favorite part of the year! the bonds i form with the girls in my cabin are amazing and it's the one place where i can truly be myself!! plus i know some of the girls like the back of my hand: every year we have "the bunkmate game" where you and your bunkmate are tested to see how well you know each other--i now know that she wads her toilet paper!! (wad or roll is a classic question they ask.) also at my camp everyone is sorted onto two teams: the Buffs and the Greens. I am a proud member of the Green Team and every saturday we have team competitions...but you love the other team as much as you love your own!! gahhh i could go on forever about my camp i just love it SOOO much!!!!!

I've gone to a sleep away camp for six years now and I'm only thirteen so I started young and I'm pretty used to it. My camp doesn't allow electronics but I don't miss it, there's so much to do instead.

Hey babe! Just be calm and confident and you'll have a great time. If your friends don't go reach out to others and make new friends! xoxo

I used to go to church campp and they said no electroincs but ignored them because without my ipod i wouldn't fall asleep, and i only tecommend bringing your own food if you have a food allergy. As for the mean girls, that happens everytime i go somewhere with my Girl Scout troop.

I'm going to summer camp for the first time this year!! I can't wait!! As for getting used to sleeping with other girls, I share a room with my 4 little sisters (the 3 year old snores like a hog :/) so I'm totally used to it! This camp doesn't allow Mp3s/iPods bummer... But I have all of my fave songs memorized so it souldn't be too big of a problemo Laughing

HEYY! i'm goin away to a prep school for hs next year nd imma b boarding there but heres the sitch... ive never used or stayd at a place wit a community bathroom!!!! all the girls on the floor share one bathroom (not many users but still!!!) with a few stalls, couple o sinks, and some showers.. tips on how to make it less awkward and stuff like tht?
thxx so much <3




Hey girlie,

I'm an only child, so I had to deal with that too when I went off to college! It's a little weird at first just to get used to having people around you all the time, but you adjust really fast just out of habit - you don't have any other choice, so you gotta make the best of it! The best thing to do is just to take a deep breath and go for it - go into the bathroom with your head held high and take care of business with confidence! Some tips: buy a shower caddy (to transport your soap, shampoo, conditioner, etc. easily) and a pair of "shower flip flops" to keep your feet away from any germs Smile

i wanted to go to a camp this summer, but we didn't have enough $$$. Frown we spent it on going to the pool instead ... which was totally bogus.

... next year i can go though ! SmileSmileSmileSmile
