Now that our campers are back in the swing of things at home, the excitement of being back at school wears off and the inevitable post camp blues begin. How can we not look back and pine for the days that start with morning line up instead of homeroom? Daydream of six periods of sports and activities instead of writing and mathematics? Suddenly, after a first summer at camp, the school year seems to take even longer to pass before those glorious summer days in the sun.

Some of the things our Junior boy campers said they would be missing most were pool parties, tubing, and laser tag! Our Junior Girls are longing for Panic, MTV Night, and the Week in Review. They also really enjoyed getting to try new things in their activity periods like robotics, rocketry and guitar and can’t wait to try more new activities this summer. All the juniors agreed the best part of being at Camp Starlight is the new friends they made, and they can’t wait to be reunited. Across the board, our juniors can’t wait to be back at Camp Starlight next summer, because they “love Starlight”, “can’t wait to see their friends again”, and “Starlight is their summer home!”
