Camp Cookies

After a long morning of activities, snack time is a big deal. Campers run from all over camp to the dining hall for cookies and a refreshing cup of bug juice. The kids devoured the tray of cookies with in minutes, just as they do every summer and they scream with excitement until another fresh tray is delivered from the kitchen. When I asked one of the campers her thoughts on the cookies she said “they are the best cookies EVER, not even my mom can make cookies like camp cookies”.

During my visit up to camp this weekend I was remind that camp really is about the simple things. The kids don’t need anything fancy, they are just beyond happy to be at camp with their friends and even happier to be eating chocolate chip cookies twice a day for snack!
