Alyssa's first Summer Camp experience!

August 17, 2016

I have known about Summer Camp for years, just like you, but never actually got to experience it first-hand.

I was beyond stoked to be involved in the first year that Summer Camp was a two-day fest! Was I pumped for the bands? Of course! But I was also looking forward to chatting with you. Yeah, YOU, the awesome people who support and listen to The End and make it possible for me to do what I do. 

I had an incredible two days hanging out and dancing with you, so here are some of the moments I captured during #SummerCamp2016.

Amber was the first lady I got to hang with. She was the first person to sign my souvenir shirt and we chatted about music and breaking in sneakers before events like Summer Camp. Looking forward to seeing you at DTHB, Amber!

I popped by the 107.7 The End tent for some Jenga and I crashed Hannah's photo.

Got some fun music talk in with Ian while he was waiting for his grilled cheese (which looked bomb, btw).

I got to introduce The Strumbellas with your help! That was super fun!

Siri inked my shirt and prepped me for The Wombats' set!

I met our youngest camper, baby Emily and her Momma! She was saving herself for Young The Giant :)

 Campers Lindzy and Collin were making Summer Camp part of their birthday festivities! Now that's what I'm talking about :)

Finally put faces to our snapchat convos! Sammi and her mom were the best!

Kaden is the coolest eight year old who can own me in Jenga.

Kudos to Carolina for getting her Young The Giant album signed!

And since I don't have actual proof that I saw JJ from Kaleo sunbathing shirtless, I'll just leave you with this. :)

This weekend was a ton of fun because everyone was in good spirits despite the heat, and showed up just there to have a good time. I dig your vibes. Thank you for laughing with (or at) me, dancing with me and making my first Summer Camp one to remember! Until next year!
