5 Things I Wish I Knew as a Rookie Camper

When we started this camp fice years ago, we NEVER imagined it would turn into the massive bucket of awesomeness it is today. We’ve gone from 20 campers, to 40, to 70, to 140 and now to 280 campers a year! GIRL, that’s cray. We haven’t just taken this journey by ourselves either. Each year, we have a growing group of Alumni that keep coming back and keep rocking the ever loving ish out of Camp Drunken Arrow. First year campers, known fondly as Rookies, are often way excited, way nervous, and WAY full of questions. While our 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th year Alumni campers seem to walk in to camp with a swagger. Why? They know what’s up. If they could all go back to their first year Rookie camper selves, these are just a handful of things they’d bust out on the DL.

1. No One Is Going to Literally Haze You

We are all way too busy having the best time of our lives to worry about giving you a perma-wedgie or putting toothpaste on your face. Also, we’re grown-ass women, duh.

2. We Don’t Give a Fuck About Small Talk

You can skip the part about the weather, how much you “love” your boss, and your kid being on a new kale kick. Get to the good shit. You’re weird. We all are. Let it out.

3. No One Is Judging You

It’s actually our numero uno rule at camp. It’s what we’re all about. Let your freak flag fly girl.

4. No. You Don’t Have to Actually Be Drunk

Proof? The preggos we’ve seen twerking in the past. You do you boo. You can make bad decisions in any frame of mind…and bad decisions made good stories.

5. Be Prepared to Make Actual Real Life Fucking Friends

This is going to happen. Whether you like it or not. #SorryNotSorry

If you’re an Alumni and know this shit is spot on, share this post with a Rookie or a wanna-be camper! No need to be nervous ladies…you got this. peace, love & Camp!

***It’s not just the campers that make best friends. Each year we pair up with Sponsor BFF’s that have the same vibe and type of tribe that CDA loves. This year one of our new best of the besties is our Title Sponsor Bishop Cider. All of their ciders are gluten-free, vegan-friendly, and made by Texans. They are currently available across all of Texas. To find the locations nearest you- Cider Finder.
