The step I took as I entered the camp I was in awe of the tall, wooden trees stand in front of me. Also the mountains high above the trees made the scenery perfect. It felt like I was staring into a picture frame but this time it was real. Second thing I would like to give approval as I have stated before in paragraph one, it moves kids to go outside to get some fresh air. It lets kids get some fresh air outside and not be trapped inside the house playing video games. Other than this approval most of my comments seem to be more about my disapproval toward this camp. As a continuation of my disapprovals I would have to say that unlike other family vacation spots you are able to sleep in a comfy bed with and a room that has its own air conditioning but here you do not have any of that. You actual have to sleep in a wooden cabin the has windows with no screens so bugs and mosquitoes can be crawling on you while you sleep. There are only two plain mattresses that can only be shared (example: one mattress for the children other for parents.). Also at night it becomes freezing cold there is only one quilt per bed to be shared with the other people with you so half of the night your left

    For many Americans, going to a summer sleep-away camp as a child is an experience to be treasured well into adulthood. Present and former campers often speak of the experiences and the friendships that resulted from their time at sleep-away camp as some of the most important and meaningful ones of their lives. Critics, however, often view summer sleep-away camps in a very different way, insisting that they are elitist and that the children who are sent there miss out on valuable bonding time with their parents and the friends who live in their hometowns.…

    Throughout the first half of the nineteenth century, many Americans considered the lands west of the Mississippi as the "Great American Desert" and unfit for civilization. However, by the mid-1840s, migrants from the eastern United States transformed this vast desert into a fruitful land awaiting settlement and civilization known as the frontier. The development of the frontier was the result of the mass population of the many different regions of the far West. These regions were diverse in climate as well as in natural resources and, as a result, attracted different types of settlers (Doc I). The wide-ranging natural landscape of the far West offered promising lifestyles to those who chose the occupations of farmers,…

    To many families the prospect of owning land was the central driving force that brought them to the land known today as the wild Wild West. Much propaganda was in existence during this period of rapid growth, many promoting the wonderful resources that the west contained. The landscape of the West was one without trees and other natural markings, water was scarce, and unpredictable weather changes often made life on the frontier difficult. Emigrants were often ignorant of the climate and made the voyage anyway, as seen in document C. The journey west was made by wagon. Food shortages and disease often plagued the emigrants. Also the unpredictable climate cause more hardships. The emigrants chose areas that they…

    My camp was set deep in the forest and it was surrounded by dense foliage. There was a big difference between life at home and life in the camp. At home, there was an air-conditioner in my personal room. I never had to wash my clothes by myself; I just had to throw them into the washing machine. After every meals, I never had to wash my dishes and my mom had always been the one who washes them. I can even wake up as late as 10am or 11am every day. On the contrary, lifestyle in the camp was totally the opposite. In the…

    The truly great thing about camp is that it encourages independence while supporting the parents' values. When my kids were in elementary, I was a single parent. I had a lot to teach them and I relied heavily on my family and community to help me. Camp was part of that community, reinforcing the lessons I tried to teach my children at home. And every time I hear someone say that my son or daughter is a "good kid", I know that it is in part because their camp helped raise them. Not only that, but camp makes the learning painless, fun even.…

    Nobody seems to be interested at all on what's going on outside, there's not even people walking around the camp trying to interact with one another. This can tell me two things, the first one is that the camp is in fact empty and nobody has arrived yet or two the one I believe is true and that is that the people in the camp stay inside all day or that when there is an activity going on, like a baseball game, everyone wants to attend the activity because it one of the only forms of entertainment they have at the…

    I was a camp counselor at Camp Wabikon ‒ a co-ed overnight summer camp located in Temagami, Ontario for children who are 6-15 years of age. Along with teaching Red Cross swimming and lifesaving and Tennis, I was my cabin's 'parent' for six weeks. Therefore, I was present with the children at all times. In essence, I was the leader of my cabin's the physical, social and mental development. The main things I learned were the importance of time management and organization , as I had to plan lessons for swimming and Tennis while taking care of my cabin; conflict resolution between campers; and the ability to plan and foresee events (I had to plan camp-wide events and activities for all campers).…

    The first few days of the camp were an awkward and confusing time, prior to even mentioning the horrible conditions. The were to sleep in places called “huts” each of which were numbered and were crammed with bunks, and even more crammed with a stupid amount of people having to reside there. The “haftlinges” were given one ration of bread and watery soup per day (which is their only form of money). They were stripped naked and waiting for hours, waiting to shower and be shaved by one of the barbers. They took all of their clothes and belongings and gave them ratty pants, shirt, light jacket and beret; along with shoes with wooden soles that never fit right.…
