1. Adjusting is HARD! We Know Memes / Via weknowmemes.com Finding ourselves stranded in the middle of nowhere with no phone service and limited access is intimidating to begin with! How will we survive?? But, during the time spent at camp we find that we think about the outside world less and less! Suddenly the 'real world' lies within the camp gates and everything else can wait. By the end of camp it's hard to adjust to being in constant communication on your phone again! 2. Camp Goggles > Beer Goggles Meme Center / Via pinterest.com If you thought beer goggles were bad, you ain't seen nothing yet! Being in such close quarters with the same people for so long really plays havoc with the mind. Suddenly people we would never usually be interested in are the hottest creatures to walk the planet and we just can't help ourselves! Until we get home and regain some perspective, which is usually followed by "What the heck was I thinking??" 3. Camp incest is a thing... Quick Meme / Via google.co.uk Camp counselors are worse than rabbits in heat and NOTHING is kept secret. Mornings after days off are fueled with rumours of who hooked up with who and where. There is always the story of that one guy who slept with 2 girls just hours apart, and that group that still wont really explain what happened when they disappeared for 3 hours one night... 4. ...and so is skinny dipping! smosh.com / Via google.co.uk Yep. Jumping in the lake butt naked with a bunch of your new BFFs is basically a rite of passage! In fact, if we dare mention that we have survived at least one summer without having joined the club our colleagues will be practically pulling our clothes off and throwing us in! Obviously these kind of activities need to be done under the cover of nightfall and FAR away from prying camper eyes! It is actually kind of liberating, don't knock it til you try it! 5. Showers are overrated Travelling Ted / Via google.co.uk Being a camp counselor is a full time job. And by full time we're talking 24/7. From sun up to sun down we barely get a minute to ourselves so why would we waste our valuable free time on hygiene? Jumping in the lake every couple of days is basically the same thing, right? 6. Early nights are underrated Google / Via google.co.uk We are young, carefree...and freaking tired! Yes, we have turned down a night at the bar with our friends in favour of going to bed before our campers. And it was probably the best sleep of our lives. We love to party, but sometimes sleep is just too tempting! 7. Camp hangovers SUCK Pinterest / Via google.co.uk Hangovers at camp are WAY worse than regular hangovers. A night out seems like such a good idea until we stumble back to our cabin at 1:15 and realise we have to be up at 7! 7am rolls around and we have to get the campers up and act like nothing is wrong while there is a bulldozer rampaging around inside our heads. Bonus points if we're on waterfront and have to spend the whole day on a rocking dock. And yes, we probably have thrown up in the lake at some point. 8. We get homesick Quick Meme / Via google.co.uk Yes we are having the best time ever. But sometimes it can get too much for us too! We will never admit it but sometimes we find ourselves longing for an actual bed, decent food and some familiar faces. Obviously this passes but at least once during summer we will get a little homesick. Don't judge us. 9. We also don't want to talk to you... Meme Generator / Via google.co.uk Camp life is like living in a bubble and you forget about the outside world. Sometimes we are having so much fun that we don't want to be reminded of life and responsibilities outside of camp. So yes, we may or may not have used poor phone service at camp as an excuse to ignore your texts and emails for 3 straight weeks. It's nothing personal, we just don't want to talk to you right now. 10. We cried on the last night. Meme Generator / Via google.co.uk Camp emotions get you right in the feels. Obviously we are all far too grown up and mature to get upset over something as trivial as leaving camp. But we all bawl like babies that last time sat around the campfire under the stars. The people we have met have become like family and we may not know when we will see them again. We don't know how to come to terms with something we love so much coming to an end so we do the only thing we can. We cling on to those last moments together and we cry. Then the next morning we get up, pack our bags and walk out the gates like nothing happened.
