This year was by far the best summer I have ever had! Which is great because it is sadly, my last summer as a camper..... and possibly at camp...
but! it was full of making new friends, memories, laughing until my sides hurt, just being crazy, awesome oldest camper privileges (Go Bums!!)
I was in the cabin of Bums Rest, which is the oldest cabin in camp, therefor, we got tons of special privileges and got to do cool stuff that I have never been able to do before! For example, Indian Campfire, Bums Back Rub, Wompus Cat, Vespers, Bums Prank... and many many more. It was such a stellar year. I had the best cabin and will always remember it as my Bums Fam.
So I realize many of you readers wont exactly know what I mean when I say some camp references, so I will just show some pictures and have little captions :)
The photo above is from when the cast of Little Shop of Horrors (the musical I was in this summer) went to the playground and got ice cream after.

Kate, Courtney, Grace, Claudia and I chillin out on the swim docks watching the Swim and Boat Meet.
Gracie, Juliet, Eden, Frances, Katie, Edith and I were in Follow The Gleam, a pageant our camp puts on, on the last Sunday of every session. I was the Holy Man, go me! haha
This is Courtney, Courtney (or Curt as I call her...) is my absolute best friend ever to ever surface the Camp Merrie-Woode grounds. She is my soulmate, camp wouldn't be camp without Curt.
This year we did a Color Run which was super cool and fun!
The cast of Little Shop on opening night!
Kickball, Harry Potter style with Curt
This is Anna, similar to Curt but different in so many ways, I have no idea how I could survive camp with out her......... okay lets be real here, I couldn't survive camp without her.
Slip and Slide on the Fourth of July with Curt and Ellie :)
In Little Shop of Horrors, I played Ronnette, the lead Urchin/DooWop Girl, it was the perfect part. Such a fun show.
Here we are on the morning of our prank, it was so fun we did "Camping out with Bumsalot" and we hung our eno hammocks everywhere in the rafters, and put tents in the dining hall. It was so SO fun!
This is Kitty, Kitty's like my camp little sister, love her to pieces <3
Shellfies with Anna
This is my camp family, (from right to left) Chandler is the great great grandmother, Alex is the great grandmother, Anna is the grandmother, I am the mother, and Margaret is my daughter.... it's a long story. All I can say is I love these girls so much and I am so SO unbelievably proud of Margaret. I love you MaggsShuff
And that's that from camp this summer.
above are the photos that I took on my disposable camera, I love them all.
there is so much love for camp in my heart. I couldn't imagine spending my summers any other way.
