Megan Champion

We dropped our son off last Tuesday for his first summer at camp. I was so sad to see him go, but he and my husband (a former camper) were thrilled at the thought of 4 weeks doing nothing but boy stuff. I have gone through your photos several times, imaging what a great time Ethan must be having and it’s really made me feel like he is having the time of his life, instead of being sad he is gone. Thanks :)


I've had a few friends that are reluctant to send their kids because of the same reason. One momma said, 'I can't bear to be away from him that long". I told her point blank, that he might need to be away from you for awhile!! She took it personally...unfourtunately! My mom always said her favorite part of the year with us was us returning. We were toned, sun kissed and in camp spirit...respectful and helpful and more inclined to stay outside. The lessons learned at camp are valuable to a kids learning how to be independent and understanding of themselves. Its a wonderful wonderful experience and as a teacher I can tell you it is one of the best learning experiences your child will have! Send him a note and tell he to be on the look out for me and we will get him on the blog!
