I always wanted to go to "sleep away" camp since first seeing the "Spin and Marty" serials on The Mickey Mouse Club in the 50's...yes, I'm that old. Theirs was a western-style camp at The Triple R Ranch. Then..."The Parent Trap"...the first one with Hayley Mills (1961). Again..."sleep away" camp. I did get to go for a weekend to a church camp at about the age of 11 or 12. My mother and her sister were "counselors" for the teenage girls and brought myself and my cousin along...who were too young to participate...but found things to do. Cathy (my cousin) and I short-sheeted beds and "dropped" the broom down the stairs early in the morning...successfully irritating the teenage girls. We did get a stern talking to, but it was well worth it!
Greetings happy campers! Here's my new design "Camp Cross-Stitch".
Several years ago I went to the John C. Campbell Folk School for a week...sleep-away camp for grown-ups! It was a wonderfully creative experience and I'm planning on going again...probably next summer. Too much fun!
