Camp 7 Hills

Alexa had her first (and probably last, LOL) experience at sleep over camp last summer. She went off, with a friend, for four days and three nights at a Girl Scout camp two hours from us (her idea). She hated it from the start and her first letter home said she was "crying buckets" and described how she would never have a good time if she was so sad. OK, that broke my heart BUT it also reminded me of my camp letters home (which I have) and how much I hated it and wanted to come home. So, like the journaling says, "like mother, like daughter!" LOL!

Journaling reads: I’d love to say you enjoyed your first overnight Girl Scout camp experience, but you didn’t. You went to Camp Seven Hills in Holland, NY for three nights. Your first letter said you were “crying buckets” and had asked to come home. You know what? I’m not really surprised that you didn’t like it. I absolutely hated my stay at Camp Runnels Girl Scout camp

(Pelham, NH) and it was only 30 minutes from home. You were two hours away! Like mother, like daughter, I guess! :) August 7-10, 2011

Pin It!


  1. Letters from camp are so fun to look back on. I adored camp and went often. So sorry her experience wasn't that good. It us a fun thing to document though.

  2. well I hate that she didn't have a good time - but the layout is super cute and I love the journaling!

  3. Your layout is super cute, Lisa. I really like the journaling and the way you did it. I thought daycamp was fine and good but I hated overnight girl scout camp!
