Ronald McDonald Camp 2012

I’m back ... from my first Ronald McDonald camp experience. I had a blast when I was out in the Poconos for RMC 2012. The 3-hour bus ride alone was fun. We talked for about an hour and a half and the rest of the way, I listened to music.

When we first pulled onto the campgrounds, I could tell I was going to have a lot of fun. The bus drove into a woodsy forest. and I felt right at home. When the buses stopped, there where so many counselors with names of different cabins on them. The cabin I was assigned to was “mango”. The girls in my cabin are all very nice and funny. We had some funny conversations and fun times in the cabin.

I was a senior camper, which means that I was old enough to choose the activities I would do for the next week. The activities I chose were going to the lake, fishing, beaded jewelry, and campfire cooking. I made lots of new friends in each of my activities. The food was great! 

The night activities were also fun. One night there was a dance, another a talent show (I wasn’t there for that), Another a scavenger hunt, and an African themed show where we got to go on stage and play the drums.(This years theme was African safari). Also during the week, we had to look for gems to turn in and get tickets for the carnival. The riders from Harley Davidson motorcycles also came.

The counselors, the campers, and the nurses were all so nice. I can’t wait to go back to camp next year!
