OH MY GOODNESS!!! Sounds so much fun and I can't wait!! All of the downloads are awesome!
This looks like a fun week.... I just have to laugh though, because I will be "camping" for real that week and miss out on all the fun! I am so bummed...
I am so so so EXCITED about this!
This will be so much fun and I am so glad to have a free week to participate!
Oh, I can't wait! It was so much fun last year!
sounds like lots of fun!! I can't wait!
Sounds like a fun week.... thanks CK!
Sounds like a great week is coming up! Thanks for hosting Summer Camp 2011 Club CK!
This sounds like lots of fun, I hope I can join in!
Finally! I am going to devote myself to this next week!!!!!!!!!!!! Love camping!!! Plus I can get my mojo back... :)
I hope I can play along too - sounds like a great time!
Can't wait. Will there be a tshirt design to download and make? If not, i have the same owl design from last year all ready to wear!
Sounds like fun. I will be away, so I can't come to camp this year. Hope everyone has a wonderful time!
Sounds like so much fun, but unfortunately I won't be able to play along this year. I work full-time and have a busy week planned already. But I'm looking forward to the free downloads - they sound wonderful!
Yay! I did this last year and have been looking forward to it pretty much since then.
I can't wait!!!
looks like a ton of fun!
I will pop in as my schedule allows!
Looks great! And with my little beastie away at his own camp for a few hours each day, I may actually be able to jump in! :)
So fun! Love the fox on the badge! I'll have to get some coffee filters, though... :)
I had so much fun last year! It rekindled my love of scrapbooking. Can't wait, so glad I didn't miss it!
I can't believe it's summer camp time again! This is where I started last year and couldn't keep up - I'll try again until I get it right. So much going on in my life I've lost my scrapin' mojo - maybe this will bring it back.
Ooooh fun! Hope I can join in some of the fun!
Fun stuff! Hope I can carve out time to play!
Anyone else notice the second blinkie still says 2010?
I can not even BEGIN to describe how happy I am that school is over this week and I get to PLAY all week long next week for Summer Camp.. SOOOOOOOOO happy the timing worked so well!
Super excited!! Summer camp, plus the first week of school, so it will be busy--- but FUN!
Can't wiat to participate.........as my schedule permits. The topics sound fun!!!! We love to camp......and the outdoors!!!! Thanks for hosting!!!
LOVED summer camp last year, unfortunately it's back to school for me next week, so I won't have any time to myself!! AHHHHH!! Grrr.... Have fun everyone!
OMG! I can't wait! It's my birthday on Monday (8th), the kids are in summer camps (the only week they are doing out of the 11 week long summer holiday) and I plan to scrap, scrap, scrap!!! :-) We've just got back from a camping trip too!! Oooooo - fab! x
This really sounds fun! I am definitely going to try and join in and get the creative juices flowing. Can't wait to earn my first badge. Now I all I need is to figure out to put a blinkie on my page. My kids will be away at baseball camp so maybe I will get some free time to go to scrap camp:)
Being the week before my DS birthday party - I'll try to participate as much as I can while getting ready for the party.... Sounds like a ton of fun - just like last year!
This was lots of fun last year and I look forward to all the camp activities next week.
Yay! I have been waiting for this announcement all summer! I think this will be my 3rd summer camp -- and I hope I get to participate in one of the challenges this time. Can't wait to see all the goodies. Thanks, ClubCK!
ooo! ooo! can't wait! I see good times!
So excited! I can't wait.
Can't wait to get started!
Sounds good to me - was supposed to be going on my craft group's retreat this weekend but I'm in quarantine with possible pnuemonia so hopefully I'll be able to take part in some of these activities during the week. Although down here in the southern hemisphere it seems odd doing a "summer" camp! Our average night time temps have been around freezing!
Looks like great activites, can't wait to go to "Summer Camp" w/ CK.
I have enjoyed the past two years of Summer Camp and am looking forward to this one. The schedule looks like a whole lot of fun. Going to try to participate as much as I can - thanks for making this an annual event!
I am excited also and off from work on tues and thurs! More time to scrap!
Looks like fun. I am in the mood to scrap and actually have the time this week. Yeah!
So excited to start summer camp again! :-)
Soooooo excited but don't know how much time I will have to dedicate to camp.........with my work schedule. Maybe it will rain a couple of days.....then I can have fun!
Sounds like fun!
Like Moongirl, I'll pop in as I can. I'm going to be visiting my sister. I'm sure she'll understand if I hide out at her computer to attend summer camp.
Well, hope I have an easier time participating in this camp! Looking forward to joining in the fun!
I want to do this. How do I sign up?
How do you get signed up? Would like to do this.
so, as usual, I can't find the information and the downloads for today's camp...it all says nothing available. That's why I rated this experience with CK so poorly on the survey they sent, never can find what my email says is available. Any suggestions?? :(
There's no need to sign up, just participate in the challenges you can. Every morning around 9 AM MDT we'll update the links for the day.
Janice - I just clicked on the blue descriptions for today's camp activities -they are hyperlinks- and they worked for me!
Sounds like a blast........can't wait to participate, when I can. Thanks for hosting camp!!!
Fun Fun Fun!!! Any new camp recipes this year?
Here's mine: clubcreatingkeepsakes.com/.../695774.aspx
The background is beach-cottage-colored wood and I added die cuts and borders of shells and starfish.
Thanks for the challenge, I hadn't used my colored pencils in a long time. I used the EK Success Memory Pencils.

This has been such a great week. I am loving all the challenges. Really making me look into my stash more and be creative.
I have to say that I would have liked to see longer time allowed to complete the challenges. Several of us work full time as well as have families and are unable to complete a challenge that quickly. Didn't we have a week last year for each challenge?
This has been a fun week learning all the new techniques.
I'm so happy I played every day!!!! It was fun!
I agree with MousEarz about the time constraints for the challenges. Very difficult for many to participate (for prizes) without having the weekend to complete. Yes, we can always do them later...but let's face it. It's not the same. Fun challenges though. Thanks for organizing!
I was really disappointed about the time constraints on the challenges. I assumed that we had longer, so I missed the deadlines on two of them. :( Did them anyway, but Brown-Eyed Girl is right, it's not the same. Oh well. I finished some really cool LO thanks to the ideas.
Thank you for all of the free downloads!!
This has been a great week. I participated in Day 4 & 5 and loved all the downloads. Can't wait until next year!
We're in the middle of rennovations...the scraproom is calling but the paint cans have a louder voice! I've downloaded EVERYTHING summer camp and I'll put the tips & ideas to good use when the renos are done! Looks like SO MUCH FUN!!
This page shows only 5 merit badges, but somewhere - I haven't been able to find it after stumbling on it two days ago - there is a list of 10 with associated challenges. I would really like to get back to the bookworm project so I could download it for my DGS! I couldn't find the recipes, either.
I really enjoyed everything I could participate it, and as always was just blown away by all the really great work Club CK members do. I will really enjoy using the downloads and all the great ideas (thank you so much CK staffers!) in the next stretch, but for a first-time Camper it was a little frustrating not to have one go-to place to find everything. Also - perhaps you could set the timing for each day's links a little earlier for those of us getting up early on the East Coast to start our scrapping before the obligations of the day take over?
I will look forward to participating again next year ...
Can anyone tell me how to navigate to the page with all 10 merit badges listed - or to the camp recipes? Thanks!
I think you found last year's summer camp which had 10 badges and recipes. This year there are only 5 badges and no recipes. You still have time to do the challenges for Friday and last Monday which are do Monday 8/15 9:00 MDT.
I'm hoping I can at least get the mini album in and finished in time. I have loved all of the challenges, just have had no time to participate. :(
