Youth camps are everywhere this summer! If you are going to one or more, make sure that you have a good set of camera and lenses. Most camps are held in the beach, resort, or in the mountains. Most of the time, the view comes beyond your expectations. If this happens, it is best that you will not go home regretting that you had not taken great photos from such a great place.
Aside from the view, it is very important that you have a good documentation of new acquaintances. The leaders you will meet or will get closer with may bring impact in your life and you might want to have a remembrance of them and being with them through your pictures together. Great moments in the camps are really worth recording.
Digicams will be great. SLRs are much cooler. GoPros today are even great especially if you will take pictures underwater. It is totally up to you. In case you still have much time to prepare, you can try practicing taking good shots so that by the time of the camp, you will be able to take the best pictures and bring them home as your treasure.
