Camp Counselor Coyote
A blog for camp counselors and those who love them to share their best summer camp memories!
Magic, 20, is an 11 year Girl Scout camp attendee and camp counselor herself and loves all things about the outdoors.
Guess what! I’m back (kinda)!
I was gone almost my entire senior year, and accidentally entered into a summer volunteer gig. Now I’m all graduated and ready to roll- and very behind on posting camp songs and submissions. If you have any, send them my way!
Here’s a story i think about when I’m sad.
I had a camper of mine tell me she didn’t believe in magic. She was 6 years old and didn’t believe that fairies existed, that mermaids were real, that the tooth fairy brought you money for a lost tooth, that leprechauns were at the end of a rainbow. Nothing. Yet she had the most active imagination i have seen a kid have.
She pretended she could fly and sprinkled dirt like it was fairy dust. She gave herself money when she lost a tooth and pretended the tooth fairy did it. She swam like she was a mermaid with her legs together. She pretended to find a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.
Why you may ask? “Just because my mom told me non of those things existed doesn’t mean my little brother can’t have a little hope”
She’s 6 and shes already looking out for her family. Made my god damn day.
