I LOVED girl Scout camp for 2 weeks. It was at the summer between my 3rd and 4th grade. Actually my best friend also went. We won a free week from selling so many cookies!Fun, fun!
Our daughter went to a private camp also between her 3rd and 4th grade.
She went with a classmate. Unfortunately her friends father died (terrible) about 3 weeks before they left for camp and then while our daughter was there my husbands grandmother died (our daughters beloved Great grandmother).. We went up to visit one weekend, just to make sure she was ok. She had fun, but there was a lot going on for those girls.
We sent lots of Care packages and lots of letters. She liked the archery and all of the water activities,.She became more more independent and more willing to try new things. She really did great considering all of the drama back here.
