Overcoming Fears ~ Life at Camp

Hello friends! Today the campers at Camp Happy Heart got to go down a zipline. But…not everyone was thrilled with that idea. Join Sparkles as she confronts her anxiety about ziplining. Will she go down? Will she not? Find out here! *ahem*, so that intro was fun. This photostory deals a bit with anxiety, which is a mental illness that many suffer with. Lately, I’ve felt the urge to talk about mental health through my blog. I realize that this is a sensitive topic, but my hope is that I can do it in an approachable way. I don’t think … Continue reading Overcoming Fears ~ Life at Camp

A Photoshoot by the Campfire

Hello friends! Today we have a photoshoot by the campfire. I wasn’t sure who to feature, but I figured why not feature the Campfire Crew! Enjoy this little photoshoot! (My editing skills are improving) This photoshoot was a lot different than my normal ones. I mean…the bears almost caught fire! Kidding. It’s all editing. But I did have to experiment with the lighting. I’m really happy with the way these turned out! These three girls love sitting by the campfire roasting marshmallows. It’s also fun to sing around the campfire. Or perhaps telling spooky stories is what these gals are … Continue reading A Photoshoot by the Campfire

Camp Happy Heart Parade

Hello friends! Today I have a really cool post for you all! Last year, I was planning to do a camp parade, but when it came down to it, I didn’t have too much time to make it. However, I loved the idea of a camp parade! So, here we have the parade! The counselors drove the Jeep leading the parade. The Campfire Crew made their float music themed! The Cheerful Ladybugs dressed up like fairytale characters for their float. The Super Adventurer’s didn’t really theme their float, but it still looked pretty cool. Finally, the Bold Butterflies had a … Continue reading Camp Happy Heart Parade

Last Day of Camp (pt.1) ~ a Life at Camp Photostory

{Claire’s POV} “IT’S TIME TO WAKE UP!” Cherry screamed, right in everyone’s ear. “WAKE UP I SAY!” “But it’s so early,” I groaned. It was early. Our counselor normally came to make sure we were up at 7:45 so that we had enough time to get ready for breakfast. Even though Treasure was known to be a little late sometimes, I didn’t think that was the case today. “It’s the last day of camp!” Cherry sighed. “We have to make the most of what little time we left.” “Oh,” I sighed. I couldn’t wait to go back home. I’d been … Continue reading Last Day of Camp (pt.1) ~ a Life at Camp Photostory

Book Club

“Hello friends! Today we’re having a book club for the daily event, and we will be discussing some of our favorite books. I’m your host, Summer, and this is my co-host Starburst! I hope you enjoy this book club! The Super Adventurers can start us off.” “Well, uh, I chose Harry Potter. It’s about wizards, but I assume everyone knows that by now…” “My book is about pirates who go on a quest to steal magical peanuts.” “Mischief, did you even read that book?” “Uhhhhh, no?” “Um, this book didn’t have words. I mean, it did have words, but not … Continue reading Book Club

Art Show

Hello friends! Welcom to our art show! Each camper will come up to the stage and tell us a little about the art piece they have created. Let’s get started! “Uh, this piece is the one I made. We were told to make a piece that represents us, and this is kinda like a self-portrait, in a way.” “Like Cherie said, we have to make a piece that represents us. What better represents me than my wishlist? Doesn’t it look great?” “Well, my name is Sandy, so clearly a beach would represent me well. I also really enjoyed getting to … Continue reading Art Show

Cherry’s a Bad Artist? ~ Life at Camp Photostory

Hello friends! Cherry will be narrating today’s Life at Camp Photostory. I hope you enjoy! It was free time on the first day of Colorful Creations week. We were all working on conceptual art for our pieces for the art show on Friday. “Done!” I cheered after a quick scribble. I didn’t like to waste too much time. “Wow!” Petal glanced up from her drawing. “I’ve only just started on mine.” “What about you Claire?” I asked. “I don’t want to show anyone until I’m done,” Claire muttered, not bothering to look up from her work. Everyone was quiet for … Continue reading Cherry’s a Bad Artist? ~ Life at Camp Photostory

Dog Show

Hello friends! Today the campers at Camp Happy Heart are hosting a dog show! Let’s see who was able to train their dog to do the most tricks. “Welcome to our dog show! As judges, us counselors are excited to see what tricks you guys have come up with. Our first group will be the Bold Butterflies, with their dog Sunny! The Bold Butterflies cabin led their dog to the stage. “Come here Sunny!” Sandy called. Sunny obeyed. “Stand up Sunny!” Sandy cheered. Sunny obeyed again. “Lie down,” “Roll over!” Sunny had been a good dog. She followed every command … Continue reading Dog Show
