Posted on

Alrighty, this is the last camper quotes of the summer.

Sad day, right?

Hope you enjoy these!

 

1.) While talking about the Gamecocks and Clemson

Staffer: “I root for the bears. But, no one knows who the bears are.”

Camper: “They’re an animal who lives in the zoo.”

 

2.) Down at the Riflery and Archery range

Me: Talking to the staffer in Archery. “In a few minutes we can let them go retrieve.”

Camper: ” Wait! We have to go get all those BBs?”

Me: “Yep!”

Camper: Eyes widen. “Do we get a shovel or something?”

Me: “Nope.”

Camper: “Why not?”

Me: “Cause you don’t have to go get them.”

Camper: “Miss Brittany shame on you!”

Me: Trying to look ashamed while laughing

 

3.) While going over rules at canoes

Staffer: “Can you tell me what no horseplay means?”

Camper: “No Horseplay!”

 

 

This was a great summer and I loved hearing what the campers had to say since there was just no telling what was going to pop out of their mouths!

Camper quotes are done for this summer. Well, that is until next summer.

Camper Quotes!

Camp is one of my favorites places to be each and every summer!

Campers are such a joy to be around especially when they don’t realize exactly what they are telling you.

 

1.) This  happened during a mother/daughter mini camp during Bible study.

Camper: “My mom and me go to a temporary church.”

 

Sounds like this church doesn’t last very long!

It’s a good thing she really meant Contemporary church.

Her mother corrected her after she had finished laughing at her daughter’s blunder.

 

2.) This happened during GA/Acteen mini camp while I was greeting new campers as they arrived in my cabin.

Camper: “What are we doing after dinner?”

Me: “Worship”

Camper: “What are we doing after worship?”

Me: “Talent show”

Camper’s eyes widen

Camper: “But I don’t have a talent!”

 

It’s a good thing for this camper that our talent show was only for the staffers!

 

3.) This one happened during a GA/Acteen mini camp right after we had finished worship and we were just about to begin our talent show.

Camper: “Miss Brittany are you married?”

Me: “Nope”

Camper: “Do you have a boyfriend?”

Me: “Nope”

Camper: “Do you want one?”

Me: “uhhh…”

Camper stands up

Camper: “ARE THERE ANY SINGLE GUYS HERE!”

Me: “SSSHHH! There aren’t any guys here it’s a girls camp!”

Camper sits back down

Camper: “Ok then give me your address and I’ll send you pictures of some guys”

Me: “You already have my address.”

Camper: “I know the perfect guy for you!”

 

I should be worried that a 12 year old wants to set me up.

 

4.) This happened during the GAs/Acteens mini camp during our bible study.

Me: “Jesus is going to come back the same way he left. That is what the Bible says.”

Camper:  “He’s gonna come back dead!?”

 

It’s a very good thing Jesus rose from the dead before he ascended into heaven. OR else she would have been right but, I did my best to explain to her just what I meant.

 

Keep an eye out for more of these post!

These all happened during one week of two mini camps.

I can’t wait to see what they will say next.

Camp La Vida Bound!

Posted on

I have survived my first summer class! Geology was interesting and now I official know way too much about rocks.

That being said I will be heading up to camp la Vida for the rest of the summer and will be working as a lifeguard.

I’m so excited!!!

 

That also means I will be disappearing from this beautiful blogging world I have learned to love and rely on.

I know sad day…

 

BUT… I get to go to camp which makes it slightly better.

 

So, with the exception of a couple of book reviews that may appear at some point I bid each and every one of you lovely readers a fantastic summer!

Have an awesome summer!

 

Unforgettable Camp Songs

Posted on

If you’ve ever worked at a summer camp then you know several camp songs.  You’ve sang these songs for an entire summer or more if you spent most of your summers working a camp.

some of these songs you love and some you dislike.

Some you may wish you could forget, but we all know that’s not going to happen.

So, here are only a few of those songs you love and possible dislike.

 

I’m A Little Piece of Tin

I’m a little piece of tin

Nobody knows where I have been

I’ve got four wheels and a running board

I’m a four door, I’m a Ford

Honk, honk, rattle, rattle, rattle, crash, beep, beep

Honk, honk, rattle, rattle, rattle, crash, beep, beep

Honk, honk

 

Herman the Worm 

I was sittin’ on my fencepost, chewing my bubblegum

(chew, chew, chew, chew)

Playin’ with my yo-yo, wee-oo! wee-oo!

When along came Herman the worm

And he was this big (make a motion as if measuring a tiny worm)

And I said: “Herman? What happened?”

“I ate a bird.”

 

I was sittin’ on my fencepost, chewing my bubblegum

(chew, chew, chew, chew)

Playin’ with my yo-yo, wee-oo! wee-oo!

When along came Herman the worm

And he was this big (make a motion as if measuring a little bit bigger worm)

And I said: “Herman? What happened?”

“I ate a mouse.”

 

I was sittin’ on my fencepost, chewing my bubblegum

(chew, chew, chew, chew)

And I said: “Herman? What happened?”

“I burped.”

 

Annie Mae

Annie Mae where are you going?

Upstairs to take a bath.

Annie Mae has legs like toothpicks.

And a neck like a giraffe.

Oh my goodness, Oh my soul,

There goes Annie Mae down that hole.

 

Annie Mae, Annie Mae,

Bluh, Bluh, Bluh.
