"Does he get to make lanyards?!"
When my dad learned that Seamus was going to attend day camp many months ago, he asked that question and then promptly burst into a fit of laughter. He's a jokester, that Pete.
In any case, two awesome camp-oriented things managed to stroll past me in the past 24 hours and I feel compelled to share. The first? The Girl Scouts, of which I was a member for eight years, has a new logo! It's a wonderful shade of green with a simple sans serif complementary font - a chubby twist on Avenir. The trefoil even has a girl with bangs...how hip! The Girl Scouts are what the Boy Scouts should be, really. Non-denominational, inspirational and full of opportunities to build confidence and skillsets for life.
Also, a summer without Girl Scout camp was a sad summer indeed. A week at camp without friendship bracelets? Misery! Also featured above are a huge and hip alternative to the delicately knotted friendship bracelets of our childhoods. These soft cotton bracelets come in fabulous colors, and are economically priced at $22.
