You can never have too many friends. If you’re in the market for a Best Friend Forever, look no further than your local day camp.
Best friends are the friends you can share anything with. They’re the kids who will bring you up, get you smiling and stay loyal to you no matter what. You can trust your best friend with anything, you know your secret is always safe. Your best friends believe in you even when you don’t believe in yourself, they’re the kids cheering you on at the finishing line. They help you to be the best version of yourself, they make you laugh so hard your sides hurt and they’re always free to help out when you need them.
Day camp is the perfect place to find your best friend. Why? It’s simple. The kids at day camp are awesome - and so are you. At day camp, you’ll be able to get to know each other really well. You’ll compete against each other, work on the same team and get to know each other inside and out. You won’t be bunkmates, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be any less friends. You don’t have to share a log cabin in the woods to become buddies.
You’ll meet lots of new kids at day camp so you’re bound to find a BFF you can bond with. You’ll spend your days having fun and playing games together - the perfect way to make friends. Unlike sleep-away camp, where kids end up far away from home, you’ll be living nearby your newfound friends which makes it easier to keep those friendships going after camp is over. You’ll be able to invite your new friend round for dinner, meet up at the local cinema or see them again at day camp at the next school break. You won’t have to worry about sending letters across the state or skyping faraway friends, instead you’ll be able to call each other after dinner because you’ll be living closer by.
If you want to meet new people and build some lasting friendships at camp, remember to:
- Be yourself - they want to get to know the real you, so make sure you let them in
- Be kind - this is important, everybody wants friends who are nice to be around
- Have fun - enjoy yourself, don’t take camp too seriously. Remember, it’s meant to be fun
- Include others - if you notice someone hanging back and not saying much, go out of your way to include them in the conversation. The more people you chat to, the more likely you are to find a best friend
- Keep in touch - make sure you find a way to keep in touch with your friends from day camp, don’t let those friendships fall to the wayside now that camp is over
