< class="entry-title">Aspen writes too… about Camp Chippewa

I’ve written on several occasions about a little writer named Oakley, but she isn’t the only one in this house.  No, no, Aspen is quite a writer herself (she just doesn’t know it yet).

This is a piece she wrote for school under the assignment “My Labor Day Weekend”

On my Labor Day weekend in 2010, I went to Camp Chippewa.  Camp Chippewa is a summer camp that my dad went to from 1988-1990.  He was a counselor there in 1993, 1994, 1995, and 1997.  Camp Chippewa is only a boy’s camp, but many former campers and counselors brought up their family’s for the 75th reunion.  There was a huge turnout with 130 people.  One of my favorite things there was the Paul Bunyan Swing.  It was a huge rope swing attached to a bungee cord that was tied between two trees.  Then there was a 10 ft. tall platform that you would jump off of with the swing.  Oh, I forgot to mention Camp is located the shores of Cass and Buck Lake.  It was a great weekend.
