This was my second year attending Camp Ocala. Sadly, the camp is closing after this year and the 4H camp for our county will be moved to Camp Cloverleaf in Sebring.
We had to catch the bus early early and right before a massive storm hit. I had LOTS of friends going to camp this year so I was super excited.
I was SO happy to have my pal, Lex, join in this year!
We sat next to each other on the bus and had beds next to each other in the big nice cabin!
We were a bit goofy before camp.
There are no after camp photos because I was not interested in pictures. I had a great time at camp. I had four classes: Aquatic World, Quidditch, Archery and Mad Science. I loved all the classes. I made several new friends, I tried new things. I sang camp songs (I would love to sing them to anyone who will listen). I managed to bring home all of the things I took to camp, except one sock and my water bottle (that went missing on day 2).
I lost my toothbrush on day 3 but Mom found it in my shoe when we unpacked. I only had one tick on me! I was covered in ant bites but I wasn’t complaining. I asked two girls (sisters) to the dance and then apparently blew them off to hang with my guy friends after a few dances. I wasn’t teased this year, except for asking a girl out. I showered a few times. I couldn’t find my underwear until the last day so I wore my dry swimming suit under my shorts all the time, including jeans. My hair was knot free, mostly! My shoes didn’t smell TOO bad, but Mom washed them anyway.
My shirt has signatures all over it this year! Last year it had THREE! I am excited to go back to 4H camp next year with even more friends. What a great time!
I have two more camps coming up in July, 4H Marine Camp and FWC Fishing Camp. I am excited for both but won’t know anyone at camp so I am a bit nervous but I will be okay.
