Everyone who grew up with classic Disney channel – and I don’t mean any of this Ant Farm stuff, I mean the OG’s – remembers Camp Rock. It really set the expectations I had of what a summer camp was like when I was younger, and some of them still remained. Here’s what happens when you think summer camp will be just like Camp Rock.
Lots of singing and to hate it.
LOTS of singing and you LOVE it.
Everyone would spontaneously burst into song every day and perform a massive musical number.
People did burst out into song, but it was planned.
You would have the best summer romance ever in the history of summer romances and spend the summer being cute and in love.
There’d be a massive diva.
No divas, just a big snitch.
There’d be a massive rivalry between some counsellors.
Everyone was one big happy family and you love each other.
You would get a tan.
The cabins would be big and glam.
Nope, tiny and basic.
You’d go and reinvent yourself. You’re clumsy, so what? No one here need ever know.
Why do I even try.
You’d have a great summer, meet some new people and have loads of great new experiences.
You don’t want to leave, you don’t want to say goodbye to your new best friends and you want to come back and start summer all over again.
What camp expectations did you have, and how did they compare to the reality?
