I’m getting ready to head away to Camp Hardknock in a few days! Camp is pretty much the best place in the world and I can’t wait to have a week to just chill out with my friends, play games and, well, be a kid. It’s a great little mini-vacation with little contact from the outside SL, except on alts. I plan on spending it in almost full immersion, only going on my alts when necessary (or when needing some hugs from my bestie).
Camp costs L$1,000 for a week, and there are limited spaces. This year, about 150 kids are attending. Everyone is divided up into cabins, and each cabin is given a color, captain and co-captain. We pick our own name, logo and official song. This session I’m in Cabin One, the Glowbugs, and as you can likely see, our color is yellow!
Camp is kind of awesome – people make tons of stuff just for it. They pour their hearts and souls into their bunks which will likely only be used for that one week, bedeck themselves in their cabin color and cover themselves in the camp logo.
Since I’m actually in a cabin with a color I can stand this year, I took advantage and covered myself in yellow – nails, flip flops, necklace, shirt, everything. All said, I spend more on getting ready for camp, buying clothing, my bunk and accessories than I do on the actual fee to get in, but it’s always worth it.
With all that spending, I try to save where I can. My shorts are from Wolfmoon Designs and are only 10L on Marketplace. They don’t have prim cuffs, but they cover enough to be modest on a kid av. My shirt is from one of my favorite stores, Dream Doll. It’s currently Marketplace-only, and everything is reduced, making a pack of pastel colored shirts 50L. Unfortunately, they don’t come with the prim bottom, so if you want that you have to ask the designer directly for them.
I’ll try to prepare a post this week to do next week so I don’t have to work it in at camp.
