My best friend is getting married and last weekend I threw her a summer camp themed bachelorette party complete with mess hall dinners, camp Olympics, a nature hike, talent show, and bonfire with s’mores. My passion for camp began early with The Parent Trap,followed by Meatballs, and the early 90's Nickelodeon show Salute Your Shorts. I went to my first sleepaway camp when I was 12, a 4-H camp in Washington State where we did polar bearing, campfire sing alongs, capture the flag, and arts & crafts. While the other girls in my cabin were desperately homesick, I was stoked to be a part of the camp culture. Nostalgic for those free-spirited days, I took inspiration from the aforementioned along with my all-time favorite camp film Wet Hot American Summer and an amazing camp resort in Wisconsin called Camp Wandawega to plan our weekend. Whether you want to create a summer camp of your own or go glamping, I’ve got everything you need to recreate that outdoorsy summer spirit of yesteryear!
