I’m feeling totally nostalgic lately because as a kid, summer always meant camp. And camp was the coolest thing about summer because…y’all it’s camp! Despite the cabins and bugs, you’re automatically way more popular at camp. I wasn’t cool in middle school, but I was tres awesome at camp.
I went to an all girls’ camp, but there was an all boys’ camp across the river so we would do some events with them. And then at the end of every camp session we had a dance. If the boy you liked gave you one of his camp shirts, it was a BIG deal and you were basically dating the next summer.
One of my boyfriends went to that camp but we were always in different sessions so one year he gave me his camp shirt after I got back from my session. Awww!
Camp crushes are really fun. Summer love and all that, you know? Here are the kinds of crushes you’ll have at summer camp!
He knows every campfire song ever, he brought his guitar and he takes requests. By the end of camp, he probably wrote a song for you and gave you a guitar pick as a souvenir.
He's older and totally hot. I mean, he's probably unavailable because he's dating YOUR counselor. But still, a girl can dream!
The Cool Kid
This kid's got it all! He's cute, great at every camp activity and everyone loves him. Including you. Because why wouldn't you?
The Sensitive Guy
He likes to take long walks through the woods. He'll happily sit on the docks and watch the sunset with you. He may even send you poems or something while you're still in session.
This guy is up for adventure, which means he's a lot of fun. He might be a little too focused on that bird he spotted, but whatevs he still asked you to go bird spotting with him.
The Guy Who Makes Amazing S'mores
This guy is the winner, seriously. He knows how to toast the perfect marshmallow. He can build a fire so he could keep you warm should you get stranded in the camp wilderness together. Yeah, he's cute, but THE S'MORES.
