The days following camp closing are very… quiet. Being campsick is this weird phenomenon where you go from playing, swimming, running, and singing fifteen hours of the day to doing absolutely nothing. For most, the next three to four days are spent sleeping 12+ hours and napping because you’re not ready to give up that daily designated nap time. Campsickness symptoms also include pouting, staring aimlessly at a wall while daydreaming about camp, and laughing by yourself as you tell non-camp friends stories of camp.

In order to get over your campsickness here’s some things you can do to help.

  1. Review camp pictures. Our photographers are the best and spent hours editing these gems just for you. Don’t worry, there’s close to 400 pictures a day to go through. Login to your CampInTouch account here to view:
  2. Watch our Heart O’ the Matter videos. A little bit of every day packed into an adorable video filmed by your friends. Our YouTube Channel can be viewed here:
  3. Practice writing letters by having a pen pal with a camp friend. Write your big or little tribe sister, your best friend, or even your cabin counselor. Need their address? Contact us and we’ll get it to you.
