A break from school, warmer weather, hanging out with friends– these are just a few reasons why summer is the best.

The endless homework, stressful tests, and angry teachers are all put to an end when summer comes around. There’s no more waking up at 7:00 a.m., or staying up late studying for that big test. Not only do you get more sleep, but you even get more freedom from all those teachers bossing you around. You finally get the three months of pure rest you’ve been waiting for the whole school year.

Summer also offers so many new opportunities to try new things, meet new people, and find new places. Summer camps are great places to experience these things. Sports camps, art camps, wake boarding camps–there are so many to sign up for and each one offers something different. Summer camps are definitely not the only option. Even just traveling to the simplest places offer all of these. Even just staying in your own city will do. All of these options could even find you a new goal or a life long hobby!

One personal reason for me to love summer the endless lake days. Spending time with your best friends, the hot sun on your face, and the music flowing into your ears. What could be better? Most of my summer days consist of waking up around 8:00 and hopping right onto the boat. When on the boat, the possibilities are endless. You could wake-surf, wakeboard, knee board, ski, or even just stay in the boat and enjoy the nice weather.

I can’t think of any reasons why summer wouldn’t be the best time of the year. Although some of these reasons aren’t for everyone, I think summer wouldn’t be the best season without them.
