As a young chap, growing up in New Zealand, I thought it
would be cool and sweet to one day come to America and be a Camp Counselor.
Little did I know that I would spend a summer at camp, get hooked, and be here
17 years later! ItÃ¢â¬â¢s crazy to think how camp has been such a huge part of my
life and how many fantastic things that have come out of my experience. So, without further adieu, here are the Top Ten Reasons why I, Simon John Hansen the V, love CAMP:
often ridiculous camp songs/skits/stories that I laugh at no matter how
times I see/hear/tell them Ã¢â¬â the Ã¢â¬ÅInvisible BenchÃ¢â¬Â and Ã¢â¬ÅIs it time yet?Ã¢â¬Â
or "There was a great big Moose" "I wish I was a Buzzzarrrrd!"
"Bunny Foo Foo" They get me EVERY TIME!!
can tell the same 5 jokes at Campfire/Skitnight every weekend for 8 years and
people still laugh as if they have never heard them (and these jokes are BAD:
What did Tarzan say when he saw the Elephants coming? Here come the Elephants!
What did Tarzan say when he saw the Elephants coming with Sunglasses on?
Nothing, he didnÃ¢â¬â¢t recognize them! Good right?? What's not to love.)
camp friends you pick up right where you left off; regardless of
how long it
has been since youÃ¢â¬â¢ve seen them.
sunsets, the forest, rain, snow, sunshine, wind, bugs, snakes, spiders, Lions,
Deer, HawksÃ¢â¬Â¦Ã¢â¬Â¦being outside and in the woods is so blimmen choice!
Dog day Corn Dog day thank you lord for Corn Dog Day!!
Carnival. Nuff said. And all of the other excellent traditions we have
at Camp Marston: Dippy Bird, Candlelight, Dancing in the Dining Hall,
Night Hikes, Above and Beyond.....
freedom in it Ã¢â¬â freedom to make a mistake, to make a complete egg of yourself, and to be
whoever you want
really is a place that can inspire people
to be the best version of themselves
so sweet to meet new campers, and then to watch them grow into most excellent
and then lastly thereÃ¢â¬â¢s this of course: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rm4Iq8loD6o
Bonus Point: 11. I met my beautiful wife Kymm at Camp in 1996. Now that is Sweet As!!
Camp is both Cool and Sweet.
Cheers and see you at Camp,
