Did anyone go? Do any parents send their kids? Does anyone have any wonderful memories? Horror stories? I spent four summers (12-16) at residential camp and absolutely loved it. The memories I have from camp are something I will never forget. I was hoping maybe someone went to my camp as well. It's called Independent Lake Camp in Orson, PA. Now when I was seven or eight, my mother did send me away to Girl Scout camp and I hated it. I was extremely homesick. It was me that decided that I wanted to go away to camp again, but it had to be my kind of camp...That means, working showers, electricity, and fun, fun, fun!
