This Sunday is Valentine’s Day! We here at Foley are always full of love for our campers, parents, alumni, and for Camp Foley itself! We think it is very important to take the time to show your friends you care, and Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity. This Day doesn’t just belong to couples and romance, it is also all about friendship. Here are some Foley ideas of how to show your friends some love this weekend on Love Day…
1. Write a letter and send it snail mail style! With all the technology we have at our finger tips we sometimes forget how fun it is to receive real actual mail. Sending a heartfelt note to your friend in another state is a great way to remind how much you love their friendship and care about them. Bonus points if you have any Riflery paper at home, what a cool Valentine note that would be!
2. Make them a friendship bracelet. This could go along with number 1 or you could make and hand deliver a friendship bracelet to a camp friend who lives close by. You could use Valentines day colors like red, white, and pink, or make one that is completely your own. Add beads or special knots and make it entirely unique.
3. Make them a collage of Camp pics. Depending on your skills and time frame you could do this physically or digitally. But who wouldn’t want to get a grouping of pictures from your time at Camp Foley with your best friends. Instagram has great story features for this as well as apps like Canva and Picsart. You could also print the pictures off and decorate them in a frame or on a corkboard and have it delivered. This takes a little extra time but can be really extra special.
4. Bake them a Camp Foley treat! Candy and chocolate hearts are so over done. This year why not bake your friends some awesome Camp Foley treats. This could be anything from soda bread, to oatmeal bake, skillet brownies, rice krispies, or even corn bread! You can find the soda bread recipe here and if you got one of our “Camp in a Box” kits, you’ll find lots of fun camp recipes in there! If you want to snag one of kits, head to our camp store.
Tag us on instagram @campfoley if you make any of these cool valentines for your camp friends! And remember you don’t need one day of the year to send some love out into the world. Enjoy your weekend and from all of us here at Camp Foley, HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY.
