Kid Writes The Best Letter From Camp EVER

 

 

 

” Last year, my eight year-old son went to summer camp. It was the first time he had been away from home for more than a night. An hour after I dropped him off, I missed him. By the time I went to bed, I found myself wandering into his bedroom, just to feel close to him.

  As the days passed, I wrote to him daily. Each hour dragged as I’d wait for the mailman, hoping for just one letter from him. By that point I missed him so much, I began to imagine what he might write.

  I fantasized I would receive a letter something like this:

Dear Mom,

  Thank you so much for letting me go to camp. I have learned so many cool things, like how to take a fish off the hook, tie sailing knots, and how to groom a horse. Thanks for packing sun screen. I’ve been out on the lake a lot, so it’s really come in handy. You think of everything! I’ve been drinking tons of water since it’s so hot. See? I do listen to all your good advice.

  The other boys in my cabin are really smart and nice. I’m making  lifelong friends I will cherish forever. We’ve had fun learning camp songs, playing cards, and catching frogs in our free time. During quiet time, I read the book you sent along. What a great selection! 

  Like you suggested, I’m trying a lot of new foods. You were right, the oatmeal at breakfast isn’t bad if I add raisins. And don’t worry, Mom, I’m using all the manners you’ve taught me over the years.

We’re camping under the stars tonight. I hope to see fireflies.

I love you,

W

P.S. Tell my brothers I miss them! 

The next day I received an actual letter from him. It was just slightly different from what I imagined:”

”  This year I’m sending a whole book of stamps to camp with him.

  Can’t wait to see what he writes!

A DISTURBING PEEK INSIDE HAMAS’ SUMMER CAMPS FOR CHILDREN

 

 

” Ever wonder what a children’s summer camp organized by a designated terrorist organization would look like?

If you guessed the kids be chanting about the destruction of Israel while holding toy guns, you’d seemingly be right.

Video posted by the Israel Defense Forces titled “Hamas Summer Camp Brainwashes Gaza Children to Hate” appears to show the children chanting things like, “We are the generation of the upcoming victory! We will never recognize Israel!”

If you are looking for a camp for your teenagers you might consider this one run by the NRA .

  “Summer camp provides long-lasting friendships, forever memories, and unforgettable fun times. Camp offer opportunities to kids that they may not have a chance to participate in any other time such as horseback riding, canoeing, or ropes courses. A truly unique summer camp experience is at the NRA Whittington Center in northeast New Mexico. Every year, the NRA Whittington Center hosts Adventure Camp for 13- to 17-year-olds in two-week sessions. Adventure camp focuses on training and firearm safety. Campers will spend a half day on each of the Whittington Center’s 17 sophisticated ranges, with extensive classroom training and safety courses.

NRA Whittington Center Adventure Camp provides the summer camp experience of a lifetime!

Since the camp’s inception in 1988, over 2,200 campers from all over the United States as well as from all over the world, have successfully learned how to shoot, hunt, and become self-reliant, self-respecting teenagers. Fifty-six campers attend each two-week session and get to fire about 1,300 rounds from pistols, rifles, shotguns, and muzzleloaders. One of the more popular features at Adventure Camp is the opportunity to fire a donated .50 BMG Barrett at the Whittington Center’s 1,000-yard high-powered rifle range.”
