Sleepaway Camp

Nina M.

Sleepaway camp…I know it may sound scary but it really isn’t. It’s just like a big sleepover. When people think of sleepaway camp, they tend to think of the fright of being away from their family and friends for the whole summer. But that isn’t true; a lot of camps have the option to only go for half of the summer. For example, at my camp (Lindenmere), you can go for either 3 weeks, 4 weeks, or 7 weeks. So it’s a good camp to go with if you only want to go for a short period of time. I really enjoy it. Another good thing about my camp is that we get phone calls home every week. Camp is an amazing experience, and I really recommend it. It helps with independence and it will help for when it’s time for college.
