No Baths at Camp

"Bathtime." Max's mother announced after dinner.

"I wish I were back at camp," Max grumbled. "There are NO BATHS AT CAMP!

No baths for a whole week."

"Really?" asked Max's mother.

"Yes," said Max. "On Sundays we go up the Rock Climbing Wall.

We put on harnesses and chalk our hands. When we get to the top, we ring a bell and put our handprints on the wall. Even though we're covered in chalk dust, there are NO BATHS AT CAMP!

"On Mondays we have drama. After we paint the sets, we get dressed in costumes and put on make-up.

Then we put on a show. Even though we are covered in face paint, there are NO BATHS AT CAMP!

"On Tuesdays we help our counselor Yoni build a fire. We gather sticks from the woods and use a magnifying glass to make a spark. Then we roast marshmallows and our hands get all sticky, but there are NO BATHS AT CAMP!

"On Wednesdays we go canoeing in the lake. The water is green and muddy and sometimes we catch frogs. Afterwards, we go swimming and my fingers get all wrinkly, but there are NO BATHS AT CAMP!

"On Thursdays we go to the art studio. Some of us make bowls out of clay and some of us paint on outdoor easels. We get clay and paint all over us. When we're done, we have a water balloon fight, but there are NO BATHS AT CAMP.
