The leaves start to change color as the temperature drops.
The school year is here. Campers, please get your laptops.
They get their pens ready, notebooks all in a line,
“I don’t want to go to school,” they all seem to whine.
As the bus rolls up to school, it is clear summer is now done.
Campers are anxious now that school has begun.
Sports, homework, and music lessons they all have in store.
Hanging with friends, Hebrew school, and so much more.
Grab your winter coat. Winter is just around the bend.
The warmth goes away, but summer memories never end.
Group chats and hangouts with camp friends keep the spirit alive.
All anticipating next June when the buses arrive.
The distance between camp friends may grow this winter.
But the bonds they made this summer, the cold can’t hinder.
The summer is over. They miss their camp friends
But one thing we know is friendship never ends.
So, the time is now for school and extracurriculars, whether they like it or not.
To our campers, we say “We’ll see you in a few.”
The separation is only temporary…Because we all live 10 for 2.
