Decoding Summer Camp Lingo: What This Mom Has Uncovered From Her Teen! by Tiffany Zook
Our daughter has been attending summer camps since the third grade. Our soon-to-be teenager is still enjoying all that camp has to offer. She’s becoming an uber-camper, attending three this year and hoping to add a forth next summer. After arriving home from a week-long adventure in the woods, it’s as if she has learned a new foreign language. After a few conversations, I’ve learned to crack the camper code. Here’s just a sample:
- FOB: feet on bunk (quiet time)
- Flush-n-Brush: a quick “after breakfast” trip to the cabin
- Pony Express: camper mail delivered by horseback
- Lost-n-Found Fashion Show: counselors wear all the "found" items on the last day of camp
- Blobber: floating inflatable bounce pad in the lake
- Nature’s Hot Tub: dig hole, cover with a tarp and water; add large rocks that were in the sun
