Leaving sleepaway camp is hard especially if it’s a camp on the beautiful shores of Lake Morey and amongst the wildlife in the woods of Fairlee, Vermont.
This past summer I got the pleasure of going to LANAKILA. Lanakila is an all boys’ camp with tons of activities. They range from arts to athletics, from woodshop to biking, from sailing and boating to archery and riflery. It’s totally old school, we slept in tents and not the super modern camping kind either. They are set up on wood platforms with just a sheet of canvas draped over it. Let me tell you, I got a lot of mosquito bites!
One fun thing to do is be in the show. This year, it was “Danny” (an adaptation of Annie). I played the coveted role of Sandy the Dog.
