Can someone please slow time down a little? I feel like we've been blasting through summer ever since Memorial Day. I can't believe we're already halfway through July, eep!
So anyway, as you may or may not know, Alz and I are kind of NaNoWriMo addicts, but November is a notoriously bad month for me in terms of having time for writing. It's Thanksgiving, gearing up for end of the year holidays, and a bunch of people's birthdays. It used to be worse during college because November was also midterm season.
Lucky for us, the NaNoWriMo peeps started Camp NaNoWriMo for summer noveling, and like we did last year, we will be participating. Woohoo!
This is probably the only camping either of us will ever do because we both hate bugs and like hot showers.
BUT since it is summer and the time of camping and summer camps and such, I thought I'd thought I'd ask you about YOUR camp experiences. I've never gone on camping trips, but I did go to a week-long Marine Biology Camp in 6th grade and a week-long Astro Camp in 8th grade.
Both were very fun, but we stayed in dorms and had hot food and water. Marine Biology Camp was tons of outdoorsy fun - snorkeling, kayaking, hikes, beach days + learning (of course). Astro Camp was also pretty fun, but I think there was more learning involved. I just remember climbing a tree obstacle course thing and building something out of PVC pipes underwater in a pool. Oh and I'm pretty sure our chaperone hated us. :P
So Q4U: What are your feelings on camping? Have you been camping / to a summer camp?
