A guide to finding fellow campers.

6 Things Everyone Who Went To Summer Camp Can Relate To

As a huge camper myself, I have a hundred songs and traditions that seem second nature to me. Every camp, I have found, has similar traditions that they share. I love hearing about the different things that one camp does that mine doesn't. It honestly takes up a huge portion of all my conversations.

It is easy to spot someone who went camping for a million reasons, but if you notice these, it's safe to say they are campers like you.

1. They have a 50-minute birthday song they sing

Everyone has some rendition of this never-ending happy birthday song. It is dreaded after dinners, especially when you aren't at camp.

2. Apparel

Campers love to rep their favorite camp. They have t-shirts, sweatshirts, pants, even underwear that are covered in their camp logo.

3. A strange devotion to a certain team/color

They would seriously kill another person for their color war team.

4. Endless stories

Anyone who went to camp can somehow relate just about anything to something that happened at camp. Think about it, I bet you could do it too.

5. A song or dance to every song

This was my closing in 2008. This was my dance in 2010. This was my cabin song in 2014...The list goes on.

6. Friends all around the world

The best part about camp. The people that you meet, and still connect with no matter the distance.

If you are looking for someone who loves camp as much as you, search for these. They will get your bizarre stories and crazy obsession.

To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before...

One of the things that I love most is space. I am a HUGE space nerd. Literally ask any of my friends. I was first introduced to space when my dad dragged me to see Star Trek. Since walking out of that movie theater in 6th grade, becoming an astronaut hasn't been just some wild dream that could come true.
