Clara Barton Camp in North Oxford, Massachusetts is such a wonderful place. This past summer was my 10th year at Clara Barton Camp and I was a Junior Counselor for 9 weeks. It was a wonderful experience. Clara Barton Camp (CBC) is centered around a pond. There has been a major renovation since I have started coming. Many new cabins have been built and old ones knocked down. CBC has a pond, pool, dining hall, many cabins, center building, tennis courts, soccer field, basketball courts, archery field and other neat things. There is a set schedule packed with fun activites all day long. Activities include sessions on diabetes topics appropriate for age group, sports, arts and crafts, swimming. Twice a session there are dances with Joslin Camp which is about 3 miles down the road. Their camp also is lots of fun. Oh, CBC is an all girls camp and Joslin is an all boys camp. Sessions are 2 weeks long. I have met many wonderful friends at CBC (and Joslin =) ) Bye the end of the session it is really hard to say good bye until next summer. It is great that everyone has diabetes there and understands what its like to be high and low. Camp is a wonderful experience I advise everyone to try. The benefits of it are endless =)
Please email me with any questions, I'd love to answer them!
Here are the words to my favorite camp song. It was written by a former staff memeber.
Have you ever woken up to a morning so serene
(chorus) and i'll call this place a haven
and i see your light shining across the water
and when tomorrow wakes me upwill you still be there
and i wonder how the fire
It is a really pretty song when you hear it... =)
