Banana Boats

I know this is on other blogs, but I camp across it 20 years ago when I was just older than Matthew. In July of 2001, it was my first time going to sleep away camp at 4-H Camp Shanitunk. What seemed like forever turned into a love of camp. I took so many different classes there.

One of them was Back Yard Cooking. During the week we would walk out to a small campsite. It was usually a small group and we learned how to cook over the campfire. It was usually the same meals each week, every year but that didn’t stop the magic. The banana boats were just one of my favorites.

Who knew that year would be one of the best summers for so many reasons that my second ever job was being a camp counselor. Three fun years and a lifetime of memories.
