Overheard at Camp

So I'm being a camp counselor this week for a bunch of 6-8 year olds. It's been pretty awesome so far - 3 hours of crafts, outdoor play, and snacks every day.

Plus, kids really do say the darnedest things. Here are a few gems from the last few days:
  • First boy: "How many miles are on your car?" Second boy: "I don't understand the question."
  • Boy playing marble game (not actual marbles, but a guessing game using them): "I keep losing my marbles. Look, I lose more every second."
  • Another boy: "I got bit by a spider & now I can jump really far. I still can't shoot webs, though."
Priceless. :)
