I am a “camp person” in every sense of the word. You could tell me camp stories all day, every day and I would never tire of them. Never, ever. I would beg you to tell me “just one more.” I like camp that much. Put me in a cabin with a bunch of other girls, I’ll swap a shower for a swim in the lake, feed me some dining hall “bean burritos,” and I will readily tell you that I’ve found my way back home. Camp is my happy place.
When NBC announced they were doing a summer series called Camp, I was in. It’s on my DVR, but I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet. This weekend. With some bug juice in hand.
In honor of it being the season for camp and for camp finally being on TV, I put together a collection of things that make me think of camp and smile. Hand me the microphone, send me to the center of the dining hall, I’ll put together the skit to present… this week’s smile list!
ONE Madewell Tropical Birds Scarf TWO West Elm Animal Perpetual Calendar THREE Wandawega Dinner Bell FOUR Wandawega Compass FIVE Madewell Estate Friendship Bracelet SIX Madewell Southwestern Cuff SEVEN Madewell Braided Friendship Bracelet EIGHT Wandawega Slingshot NINE Anthropologie Glass Globe Oil Lantern TEN Feed for Target Throw Blanket
Time for bird watching? You’re ready! Put on that scarf. Sneaking out at night? I’ve got you covered. Take the lantern and the throw. Hungry? Ring that dinner bell. Need to tell someone that they are your “bestie”? It’s friendship bracelet time. Need a good prank? Take that slingshot. And…if you’re camp is anything like mine, watch out for bears.
Like me, if you are finding yourself a bit campsick this summer (like homesick, but for camp!), I think that compass could point you towards your home. At least for me, camp is due north.
And you? Are you a camp person? Have you watched Camp on NBC? How was it (but remember: no spoilers please!)?
Until next time!
