There are so many places you can go to camp in the summer, but my favorite camp is the G.A.P. Camp. G.A.P. is the Group Activities Program for the Town of Oyster Bay. Kids from different schools and towns go to G.A.P. Camp.

There are lots of fun things to do at G.A.P. Camp. We have different groups and each group has many counselors. In the summer, when it is hot, we swim every day in the pool. We play many sports like baseball, kickball and football. We eat lunch at the camp and usually have barbecues on Fridays. A special award called Camper of the Week is picked. They get a special certificate to bring home.

We take a trip every week to places like Dave & Buster's, Mets baseball games and the Long Island Aquarium. My favorite places to go are the Fun Station and Pump It Up. We play games and win prizes with our tickets. One of my favorite activities is rock climbing. We wear our bright yellow camp shirts on trips so the counselors can recognize us easily.
