Summer is coming and there’s so much to do! I’m so excited about the great things we have planned. This is going to be the most exciting summer ever at Hammond River Park. I have the greatest job in the world.
First I get to spend my summer, outdoors, exploring, learning, eating candy from the canteen, burning things, hanging out with the best staff ever and taking the greatest campers in the world on a week long adventure.
Next I get away from all the normal everyday stuff. At camp no one sits and listens to someone tell them about the wilderness. We get to go out there get dirty, and learn by doing stuff. We build shelters, learn what’s safe to eat and drink, how to cook over a fire, and how to help someone who’s hurt far from home. When it rains, we get wet, when it’s hot we cool off but we never stop. Finally, I remember when I was a kid all of the stuff I went to that was supposed to be fun but wasn’t.
The most fun I had as a kid was playing in the woods with my friends and it still is. I can’t wait to see all of you this summer. It’s gonna be awesome! There’s not a lot of space and camps are going to fill up fast so make sure you register early to get the spot you want with your friends.
Keep watching our website, we’ll be updating it all the time with information, videos, contests, and prizes as we get closer to camp. Can’t wait to see you this summer at Hammond River Park!
