STORY: When I was 8 years old I went camping with my family. My family and I spent a week at camp Dearborn. We slept in a tent. My sister and I rode our bikes every day. We also went fishing and swimming every day. The camp had a lake and playgrounds. My favorite thing to do was to spend time with my family. We also cooked food over a campfire and roasted marshmallows for s’mores. I loved going camping with my family.  There was always so much to do and so many people to see.
