I Should Be Allowed To Go To Sleepaway Camp


During the summer, I have noticed that lots of my friends go to sleepaway camp and I have to be stuck at home. I feel left out. I always wonder what they are doing. I can imagine them swimming and playing so happily. I’ve always wanted to go to sleepaway camp. I should be allowed to go to sleepaway camp.

Don’t you want me to make new friends? I’m stuck in Scarsdale every day playing with my old friends. At sleepaway camp I would be able to make friends from different places in the world. When Serena went to Camp Matoaka, she made friends from Japan, Canada and Australia. Most importantly I want to make friends from those places. Serena also said she learned a lot of new things when she was with her friends. One thing I learned from Serena  is that there are lots of snakes and spiders in Australia and that Canada is turning 150 this year! Serena knew that because her friends told her. Another thing I could learn about is new ideas and things. Serena said she learned how to rock climb, water ski and do a cartwheel. I also want to learn how to do those things.

When I go to sleepaway camp, I could learn how to do fun new activities.One thing I really want to learn how to do is water ski. I could learn how to play a lot of new sports like dodgeball, gaga and learn how to swim and do art better. I could learn how to get better at the stuff I’m bad at. I know I’m gonna get better at all the activities.

I’d expect you to want me to be more responsible and this is your chance. If you send me to sleepaway camp, I’d have to do a lot of chores. I’d have to do things without you reminding me. For an example I’d have to take a shower, hang up my towel, get up early and pick out my own clothes. The best part about that for you is that when I come back from sleepaway camp I’d probably be doing the stuff that I was doing at sleepaway camp. For an example, every morning I’d probably get up early, take a ower, make my bed and hang up my towel. Now that you know all my reasons, maybe you’ll consider letting me go to sleepaway camp.

You may think that I’ll miss you, but I won’t because I’ll be having too much fun to notice. You also may think that I’m too young to go to sleepaway camp, but I’m not because I’ve shown you that I can handle it.

Clearly going to sleepaway camp is important to me. First I obviously will make new friends. Second I would do more amazing and awesome activities.  I’d definitely become more responsible. Now that I have stated all my reasons, I bet you’ll send me to sleepaway camp.
