How to Choose the Perfect Summer Camp

Summer is just about here which means school will be out and it’s time to decide how you’re going to spend those sunny days. If you’re considering going to a summer camp this year to fill the time deciding which one is best for you can be hard. Check out these tips on how to choose a summer camp!

What Are You Into?

Summer camp is a great opportunity to expand your horizons, especially if you have a hobby that you don’t have the time or means to pursue during the school year. There are summer camps for everything from horseback riding and tennis to theater or art, and chances are you can find one that’s a great fit for you! One of the best things about going to summer camp is meeting new people and getting a fresh start. You can just relax and be yourself when you’re with other people who love something as much as you do.  Alternatively you may just want to unwind with a classic camp experience, like making s’mores by a campfire and swimming every day at a lake.

Make a List

After you’ve decided what kind of camp you’re looking for, sit down with your parents and make a list of what else you are looking for in a camp. Do you want a sleep-away camp? Do you want to go where your friends or siblings are going? How far away is it and what can you afford (questions your parents will definitely ask!)?

How to Choose the Perfect Summer CampDo you want a traditional summer camp, complete with smores and scary stories by the campfire?
 

Ready to Research

Once you’ve decided what kind of camp you’re looking for it’ll be easy to go online and see what options suit you best. If you’re unsure about a camp call and ask for more information, most camps are more than happy to help you find the best fit. A great way to find the best camp can sometimes be word of mouth, if you know anyone who has been to one and you’re considering it you should ask them how their experience was to see if it sounds like your kind of thing.

Once you’ve got all the information all there is left to do is decide on your favorite and enjoy your summer!

Smiling with gratitude, Polaris spoke again. “Thank you, kind sir. Our people remember Those who assist us. But, do you swear? Swear that you will leave this December   For our lands, and bring to your skills and wit To save our young heir from the clutches of beasts?” Star Swirl became hesitant when at last he heard The nature of his quest, but he did not cease   In his resolve, and he swore by the Sun and the Moon “By Celestia and Luna’s names, I swear I will rescue your heir, Polaris, and I will depart At the dusk of tomorrow from here.”   “Truly you are a stallion of strength. I will guide to your quest at the time you may. The details I soon will reveal As we continue upon our way.”   The feast was concluded and all fell to sleep, But Star Swirl lingered when Polaris he espied By the fire, watching the flames And the wizard sat down at the unicorn’s side.   “Tell me of this heir you have spoken. What is their name, and by whom were they taken? Or what, should I say? By ‘beast’ mean you dragon?” Polaris sighed. His countenance seemed to be shaken.   “Her name is Royal Blue, and she is my daughter. She was indeed taken by beasts, us beaten and battered, A tribe of savages like never before seen. They are ponies with minds bended and shattered.   So savage are they, we know not how We are to defeat them without harming my child. They do not allow us to approach Without threats of her death by animals wild.”

Thank you.)) After the battle to banish the Empire succeeded, The pony of shadows now for a thousand years gone, The feasts of celebration were well underway, And the Princesses rejoiced that the battle was won.   Star Swirl the Bearded, great wizard of old, Had remained there as long as he may, But as soon as he rose, the hall to leave There came an event that forced him to stay.   A figure stepped in from the midst of a storm: The doors were flung open with tremendous might By a stallion of stature like never before seen His presence alone dimmed the room’s light.   His hooves pounded the floor and forced it to crack Legs like tree-trunks, and a voice like thunder His eyes flashed like stars underneath his hood All present had their composures thrown asunder.   “Greetings!” The unicorn cried to the thrones. “I have traveled from the Northland’s wastes To meet the Sisters of much I have heard And so I have arrived, coming with haste.”   Celestia bowed with grace to this stranger “We accept you in our halls, you are to be certain You will be welcome as long as you stay. But I request you tell of your journey and all it may pertain.   Begin with your name, if you please,” she concluded. And the unicorn nodded in acceptance. “Of course. You behold Polaris, a messenger For my people, and have come to pay penance   To the rulers of our far away neighbors. I am the chieftain of my tribe in the North, Masters of snow and flame in our magic. But now we are in need, and I have come forth   To beg of you your assistance.” He bowed in his head, in pleading he waited While averting his eyes to the ground. Not wanting the Princess to know what was unstated.   Star Swirl arose, proudly he stood, His horn lit aflame to point to the sky. “Of course we will help! I’ll accompany you myself!” He did not pause to ask Polaris why.
