Camp people understand that school is ten months out of the year in order to make the two months spent at camp more special. Camp people know that hitting a bull’s-eye in archery is properly done in silence but must be while surrounded with a group of friends. Camp people usually can’t remember what they’re laughing about anymore by the time they finally stop. Camp people know that life is just easier when you shout, “YES!!! I made a mistake!” Camp people know the contentment of everyone in sight wearing the same staff shirt. Camp people find comfort in knowing that throughout the whole year, no matter what goes wrong, everything will be ok once you get to camp. Camp people know that when you look your worst, it means you’ve done your best. But above all, camp people know that regardless if you’ve spent one summer at camp or fifty, a part of you will be changed forever.
