sleep over at my friends house on new years eve when i was 8 years old
I always spent a couple of weeks in the summer with my Aunts. I love that.
I went to a camp for a month as a child.
Loved the video. This would be great for kids that have just gone off to college.
I went to church camp for a week.
I had a great time but I was staying with my grandparents, so their home felt like home.
I went to a summer camp. I had so much fun. I remember crying the first night but after that I had a ball.
My first time to really be away from home was when I was 18 and went to college 4 hours away from home. It was scary, but exciting. Thanks for the giveaway.
I would spend a week at my grandma’s house every summer when I was a little girl
Slep over with the neighborhood girls. Up all night laughing, eating, and talking
The first time away from home that I can really remember was a summer camp. I didn’t like it.

Sleepover at my best friends house
camping with my dad
A trip to greenfield village with school it was a sleepover what a fun time I was 8 and
remember it like it was yesterday.
I used to go to summer camp in Colorado as a teen.
Me and my sister stayed with a friend of my mom’s for a couple nights. I have no idea why. She had no kids nor tv in her home. Hated it.
I went camping with a friend and her family when I was little… first night away. I cried all night long.
“What was your first time away from home experience?” Summer camp when I was maybe 9.
My first experience was going to stay part of the summer with my Grandmas. I would spend time with both of them for the summer. Loved it for many different ways. One would could and play games with me and one was at the Lake and have fun swimming.
My first time away from home, besides visiting family alone, was my junior year of college. At least I was 2.5 hours away from home so I could visit my mom!
I was 4 years old and my mom took me to Germany to visit her family there. One day she went to visit other relatives and I was so lost and confused with my Oma, she spoke no English and I spoke basically no German. Luckily my cousin came after a few hours and she was our interpreter.
I was always clingy as a small child and didn’t like staying at camp or slumber parties. Once I was a teenager though I was skating competitively, so I would go to camp in the summer by myself. I think if it weren’t for skating I would have had a hard time leaving state for college.
I went to camp, and I loved it, I could have stayed longer.
This would have been great for eclipse viewing
I was in 5th grade for outdoor ed, it was fun! Thank you so much!
I went to girl scout/brownies camp in second grade.
A sleepover at a friend’s house.
