  1. Timely post. My jr. high group just started our summer camp last night. It’s 7.47 am breakfast at 8am. We’ve been here less than 24 hours one homesick students, one girl hurt her shoulder during a game,one almost puky kid. You gotta love camp!

  2. The No Show:
    Aliases: The counsler who wasn’t there, the counsler on paper only, the one who _____ (ended up in the hospital the first week, had a relative die, got a better job, got kicked out etc.)
    Natural Enemy:
    The lifer (the one who’s served every year since the camp was founded)

  3. An add to the no-show: …the one who didn’t pass his drug test.
    … the one who… when finding out the camp drug tested, convienently decided he didn’t want to work there anymore.
    (He swears it was just by being around it!)
    I’ve worked at camp too long.

  4. “That Guy”
    The kid who plays guitar, acts like a ninja, crys during worship, farts during the sermon, and all the girls surprisingly like. He is just, “That Guy”
    Aliases: “Oh no he didn’t”
    Natural Enemy: The PK

  5. “Guitar Guy”
    Aliases: Have instrument, will travel. Worship dude.
    Natural Enemy: Paintball kid, Dodgeball lass.

  6. The Post
    Aliases: “The Not-Funny Dude;” “Board Guy” (as in “stiff as a…”)
    Natural Enemies: Pre-teens with a sense of humor; junior highers with a caustic wit; the emcee trying to get him offstage on skit night.

  7. The Pre-Teen
    Aliases: “He Who Found His Inner Child And Won’t Put Him Back”
    Natural Enemies: The Camp Director; The Insurance Adjuster

  8. The kid who plays guitar, acts like a ninja, crys during worship, farts during the sermon, and all the girls surprisingly like. Its nice to see that boy playing guitar.
