J finished his week at day camp yesterday and he left on a great note. All week he swam in a lake, climbed a rock-wall, rode a horse, went on a pontoon ride, saw a sunken pirate ship, went canoeing, jumped out of a helicopter and parachuted onto Old Man Barlow’s grave and caught sea turtles and lobsters. OK everything after canoeing may be his active imagination or either that was the best money I ever spent on activities for my kids. Of course the way he was going on and on again about those last few activities I started to wonder. He kept telling me the sea turtle he caught was in the back of my car and yu know what I did, I actually looked just in case my 5 year old snuck a turle home from camp without me knowing.
So even with the real and fantasy activites he enjoyed he really loved it. He wants to go back next year and even mentioned wanting to do horse camp. WOW waht a difference from Monday morning!
I would totally recommend the YMCA Camp to anyone. On family night we got a little view of some of the stuff he got to do all week. I personally thought the quarter sized turtle was pretty cool and was amazed that he rode a full size horse and loved it. So anyone with a child entering kindergarten next year YWCA kindercamp is the best bet for your day camp money.
Today was the first day of day camp for J. He was so not interested in going last night and I was a little nervous too on what I had been thinking when I signed him up, after all his is only 5. He actually cried last night because he was so scared until I told him that I would take him home if he hated it. Well it was a bit of a restless night for everyone so getting up this morning was a bit of a struggle but we made it to camp on time. Since J was going to camp with a buddy, K, so I think that made it easier. Once we got there and the two of them took off I knew it would be ok. Watching my little boy run off to do what campers do made my heart smile. But still I set my cell phone on my desk in anticipation that the camp counselor would call with my crying camper on the other end. Even my friend who is the mom of K called mid morning to see if I had heard anything from the camp. Of course come pick up time the kids were tired, hot and all smiles. Here’s to a good camp experience the rest of the week.
