Time For Some Funny Or Memorable Camp Stories!

Many, many years ago when I was a kid I was always excited about the end of the school year. For me it just wasn’t about getting out of school and not having to do homework for a few months for me it meant I was going to overnight camp. And not just an overnight camp but in Maine. Actually the middle of nowhere in Maine. The location was East Parsonsfield, Maine and the camp was the West End House. I had so many great times – the camp was an all boy sports camp so basically you ate, cleaned up the bunk and played sports all day.

I had so many fond memories it is tough to narrow it down to a few but I will try:

  • Once in a while it would rain and I remember going to the rec center (beautiful indoor basketball facility) during a rainy day and playing dodge ball with the entire camp! So literally 300 people playing at once and balls flying everywhere!
  • During the summer we would have a few trips and we would always go to Ogunquit Beach where they had a great penny candy store (yes it was over 30 years ago) and the water was absolutely freezing in the middle of the summer!
  • I also remember being on the baseball team and representing the camp. We played a road game one day and I recall hitting a long double which was so exciting for me since I wasn’t a good ballplayer back in the day!

Great memories for sure!

  • Did you go to camp?
  • What camp was it?
  • What are some of your favorite camp memories?
  • Are you still in touch with some of your friends from camp?

I look forward to reading your comments.
