If you’ve been following me on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, you’ll have seen that I’ve been posting a lot of snowy pictures from America. That’s right, last week I flew across the Atlantic from London to new York, and then came north to Connecticut, to visit my beloved Camp Sloane for a long weekend, and … More Photo Of The Week: Winter At Summer Camp
Quite a while ago now I was tagged in a travel blogger series by The Little Backpacker (read her interview here) that was doing the rounds called ‘5 Cities I Would Return To’, and obviously, me being me, I started a post for it, and then promptly forgot all about it until just now. So … More 5 Cities I Would Return To
For the past four summers, since June 2011 I have spent the sunny months between May and September living and working in a place I like to call my second home. That place is Camp Sloane YMCA in CT, USA. Choosing to work at a summer camp all those years ago was the best decision … More 10 Reasons Why Working At Summer Camp Is The Best Job In The World!
So it seems that my travelling jaunts are over (at least for the next few months) and I am actually now sitting on my bed at home in London. Home. It’s a weird word. I pretty much apply it to wherever I am living at the time, so over this past 16 months I’ve had … More Photo Of The Week: The End Is Not The End
I’m sure you can imagine that life spent at summer camp is always pretty hectic, hence why it’s taken me until right now to actually sit down and write about things that have been going on. Summer has come and gone, kids arrived and left, staff came, they worked hard, played hard and went off … More Life Goes On…And On… And On…
This past week has been full of fun, laughs and the usual camp adventures… the end of the week saw another intersession break – where the majority of the kids go home and only a few stay over the weekend, meaning most of the staff are off (on camp) to do all the campy things … More Photo Of The Week: Surfing On The Lake
This week at camp has, of course, been another busy one, so it was pretty awesome this past Saturday when almost all of the staff were off from work due to it being an intersession (the end of a session with only a handful of kids staying over for the next session). We were … More Photo Of The Week: I Love My Friends
Things have been pretty hectic at camp (so what’s new?!) hence why there haven’t been many massively insightful or particularly thoughtful posts recently. I just haven’t had the time to sit down and gather together all the things I want to say. I’m almost halfway through my summer at camp already and I can’t quite … More Life & All Things Camp
This week at camp we’ve been pretty busy, as per usual, with all the campy things we do (check out my post about the week over on my blog for CCUSA Australia), but the biggest drama that happened this week was entirely to do with the weather. On Wednesday and Thursday nights we had two … More Photo Of The Week: The Storm Approaches
This week’s photo of the week really represents life at camp at the moment. This past week was a week for specialty training – of the lifeguards, for the ropes course elements and for the supervisory staff. It’s was a great week to all get together, learn some new stuff (and be reminded of some … More Photo Of The Week: Supervisors Say What?!
