You Know You’re At Young Life Camp When…

This post was originally posted last summer.
  • You can’t start your day without Honey Nut Scooters and CoCo Roos.
  • Everything you own is somewhere between damp and soaking wet.
  • Most of your energy is spent protecting Timmy, the Summer Staff Lifeguard, from your 10th grade girls.
  • You realize your girls just convinced you to spend $10 in the craft shack getting a feather in your hair.
  • The first three minutes of your fifteen minutes of silence is spent trying to get that new Bieber song out of your head.
  • You begin to actually like the combination smell of Axe Body Spray and wet socks.
  • The towel exchange is the highlight of your day.
  • You begin expecting dessert at every meal… and wondering why your pants won’t button by day 4.
  • The camp speaker doesn’t walk out of club after his talk. No, he crowd surfs.
  • You realize there’s over $10,000 worth of Chacos on property.
  • You catch yourself and another male leader singing Taylor Swift in the shower.
  • Western night is merely a chance to show your guys you don’t need charcoal on your face since you can actually grow a stache.
  • You get tendinitis in your elbow from those 27 holes of Frisbee golf you’re playing each day.
  • You don’t bother washing your feet in the shower, since the shower is actually a swamp puddle of mud, hair, and wet boxers.
  • You’re wearing a braided bandana on your wrist. Hmm.
What would you add?


  1. Your guys only shower when they meet a cute girl from another area


  2. Sad but true. Freshmen.

  3. you drink as much coffee as you do water.
    you have a map of the cleanest bathrooms in camp.
    you can smell yourself, possibly your kids in clubs… from 3 rows up.


  4. I think our property division should create and sell those bathroom maps. I’d buy one for sure.
