Camp friends are the best friends!

Thursday, November 14th, 2019

Howdy, HVC! Hummingbird here, and brrrrr is it chilly here in the Valley!! Blackberry the llama and I had the best time ever sledding down the first snow of the year on Tipi Hill today! The snow was light and fluffy and perfect for a few rides, although it was hard to hang on tight with wings!!

Berry and I realized that we’ve been friends for almost 10 years now! Can you believe?! We started off in Down Under as the youngest animal campers (a little known but definitely real camp program that happens in the offseason), and now we live at camp all year round! We went from campers to AWACs to counselors, all the while keeping in touch over the winters and visiting each other’s hometowns! Summers are waaaaay too short, and the time we’ve spent away from camp feels like absolutely FOREVER!!! But the friendship Berry and I share keeps me warm even in the cold months of the year!

I know some campers who feel the same way about their HVC pals! In fact, campers, counselors, and AWACs alike had a meetup in New York just last week to keep that summer warmth alive as the air gets crisper! Take a look at photos of the reunion, and don’t forget to tell your camp friends how much you love them!

Before we part, I’ll leave you with a few old favorite Taj quotes:
Friendship is like peeing your pants… Everyone can see it, but only you can feel the warmth.
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.
Friends are like potatoes… if you eat them, they’ll die.

Feeling the warmth,
Hummingbird 🙂
