Camp PDC

Hi everyone!  I'm using my free time tonight to catch y'all up to date on what's been going on.  Last week, I was busy packing, packing, packing.  It was tough trying to get all I needed packed into one trunk.  See what I mean?

We left Sunday afternoon and drove part of the way to Camp PDC.  We stayed at this house (my mom called it a B&B) and it was really old fashioned.  I kept thinking that Samantha probably would have really liked it.  I had to say goodbye to Julie that night.  We decided that it would be safer for her to stay at home.  Here we are saying goodbye.  I think she understands.  (Ok, I know she doesn't really understand, she's just a doll!)

We had to get up and drive some more early Monday morning so we could be there to check in that afternoon.  I was starting to get nervous.  Who would help me fix my hair?  What happens if I break my glasses?  What if I get sick?  I wasn't so sure that camp was a good idea.  I thought about telling my mom to TURN AROUND, but I knew we'd already driven a long way.  My mom told me that she cried and cried the first time she went to camp, but then she had a great time.  We finally arrived and I was almost the last one to check into my cabin!  Here's some shots of us moving in.
 Anna and Amy have known each other for a few years.  This is their third year at Camp PDC.  Last year, they met Addie, so they all decided to sleep on the ground floor.
 Meghan asked if I wanted to sleep in the loft with Elena and Emily.  This is Meghan and Emily's first time at camp.  This is Emily's FOURTH year!  She's been coming to camp since she was 5!

Well, I need to get to bed.  Tomorrow I have Water Safety classes with Elena and Meghan.  We also have to make our cabin flag and learn some camp traditions.  I miss home, but I'm excited too!


  1. Camp is so much fun! You'll be too busy enjoying yourselves to remember you worried about anything beforehand.

    Have lots of fun! Thanks for the update and the pics. :-)

  2. It looks like you are going to have a great time at camp. Thank you for sharing photos! I'm actually kind of jealous; I would love to be at that camp right now!

  3. Hi Makennah,

    Camp sounds like it is going to be a lot of fun for you! I know it's a little scary, especially if most of the other girls know each other already. But I'm sure you will all end up getting along well and having a blast. Wish I was going to camp!
