Every summer as a kid, I looked forward to my week at sleep-away camp. I was thrilled when my step-son began his camp adventures, and can't wait to let my Little Boo spread his wings in a few years.
I went to my church's summer camp from the year I turned 11 up until I was 16. I started as a camper, and spent my last two years there as a camp counselor, teaching rowing and canoeing to the girls. I learned so much at camp, and developed so many great friendships. The feeling of freedom and independence was amazing.
It was so good to get away
Well, sometimes parents need to get away as well. (There. I said it.)
Circle Square Ranch is offering a fabulous contest this spring. They are giving away four prize packages including a free week at their camp (and other goodies), and one grand prize of a free week at camp PLUS a free week for two (read Mom & Dad!) (or maybe Mom & her BFF?) in Punta Cana. Pretty amazing hey?
They have also partnered with Crossroads and Mabel's Labels to offer discount coupons for all who enter this contest. AND they are offering a 20% discount on their summer camp fees for new campers. It's a great time to check them out.
This contest is open to Canadian residents (excluding Quebec) and runs until June 15, 2012. It is a Share & Win contest, so you can gain additional entries by sharing your personalised contest entry url with your friends and family. There are three easy share buttons displayed (Facebook, Twitter, Email) at the completion of your entry form. For full rules & regulations and prizing, click here.
Circle Square is a non-denominational, non-profit, Christian camp welcoming children and teens from all races and faiths. They are a ministry of the Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship of Canada, and have locations in Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta. In their own words, they "encourage young lives to grow spiritually, mentally, socially and physically in an exciting, fun-filled and safe 'adventure experience'."
