There’s a reason your trunk feels much fuller going home than it did on your way to camp (and it’s not just that all those dirty clothes seem to have expanded!). No matter how long your session, you leave with all kinds of mementos, awards, and letters that serve as physical memories of camp all year long.
These patches, plane letters, stickers, t-shirts, posters, art projects, and Banquet awards (just to name a few!) are treasures that many Greystone Girls keep for a lifetime. That begs the question: how is everyone else storing and displaying these things?!
It’s not uncommon for campers and alums to store their Greystone memories in their trunks (that’s what I always did growing up!). This can be a great solution for many - your items are protected and contained in one place, and you know exactly where to find them when you want to look through them or show them off.
But what if you want your camp mementos visible or displayed in some way? It can be so wonderful to have that reminder of camp every time you pass them by. Who better to ask than our current Greystone Girls? We put out the question on our Instagram and received a lot of smart responses. Here are just a few ideas!
We hope these ideas have sparked some of your own, but we know that we have only scratched the surface! Each Greystone Girl is unique in the way she displays her camp memories, and we want to hear how you treasure yours.
Share your ideas and tips with us and we’ll compile an even more robust list to share in the future!
