After a lot of thought… discussions… reading every parent blog online … multiple calls to friends who had gone away to sleep-away camp, we finally decided to send Mati to camp. She had never slept away from home at anyone’s house, so it was quite a decision-making process.
Once we made up our mind, all the fun began. Matilde was turning 9 and was leaving for three weeks to Maine. She was so excited! Not once during her 3-week stay, nor any time before, did she ever feel sad. Quite the opposite! Matilde absolutely loved her camp experience and hasn’t stopped talking about it since! She discovered the carefree joy of friendship, crafts, sports, playing, singing, all within the most beautiful setting possible. She also learned responsibility with her daily chores and appreciated the comforts of home (air conditioning).
By far a great gift for any girl :). So much was new; so much was fun!
Today we are happy to be able to send our youngest daughter along this summer as well.
