Oh my gosh, it's happened. My children are getting older! The two oldest children have elected to spend a week at sleep-away camp this summer. A is attending Girl Scout camp for a week. J is attending Boy Scout camp. Mom is excited and apprehensive, and busy shopping for all the equipment needed for camp. Geesh.
I'm amazed by how different the camp amenities are set-up. Girl Scout camp is a bit more rustic than the Boy Scout camp. Girl Scout camp - latrines, only one shower house, family-style meals. Boy Scout camp - flushing toilets near every campsite, many showers (thank goodness - it would be a very stinky week otherwise), cafeteria-style meals.
Boy Scout camp focuses on Merit Badges. Girl Scout camp focuses on fun, girl-togetherness time.
It will definitely be a learning experience for all of us this summer. I'll let you know how we survive!
