Well our week at camp has come and gone, and we had a SUPER good time! I don't know about you but some of us have the "After Camp Blues". Do you know what that means? It means we really miss camp and all of our friends. untitled
Here's some helpful hints if you have the After Camp Blues too!

1.Remember missing camp and your friends is a normal feeling, it just means you had fun!

2. If you can, reconnect with your camp friends now that you're back home, and share your camp stories and experiences with each other! Be careful though, this could lead to uncontrollable laughter!

3. Keep an eye out for more Camp CARE planned activities throughout the year. These are always fun and a great way to reconnect with friends!

4. Keep in touch with us through Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! We'd love to hear your camp stories, and we also share a lot ourselves! There are even times we need your help on projects, or we may have a contest!

Hope these tips help!
