We’re trying to stay as anonymous as possible because we all want to have futures and we extend that courtesy to you as well. So we won’t credit your confession unless you expressly ask us to. As a huge supporter of camping and the outdoors, we don’t want any of these confessions to reflect poorly on the organizations that made us stronger people so we won’t be naming any specific camps either, unless they are submitted with approval by an official representative. We’ve been sticking to general camp topics to hopefully widen our appeal but we are supportive of specific types of camps and the confessions that come with them. Just wait until we start rolling out our confessions about high ropes, rafting, canoeing, backpacking, church camp, etc. Feel free to submit whatever.
We will accept all submissions but we will choose what to post to avoid repetition and issues with any of the concerns above. As far as submissions for confessions: if you don’t see your exact submission there are several possibilities.
1) it is really similar to a confession that has already been written*
2) it’s in the queue which varies in length at any given time
3) we tweaked it a bit to make it more general
4) we tweaked it a bit to make it more of a confession and less of a moment/expression/statement thingy.
*If your submission is about showers, there is a very good chance it is too similar to others. Please scroll through the archive before submitting it.
What's the number one tip you could give a first year counselor?
We couldn’t agree on one answer and we figured that everyone had good advice so we’re throwing this your way followers. What would you go back and tell yourself? What’s the one thing you wish someone had told you?
Okay so I have been seeing pictures of counselors from Camp Buc? Are you guys from there?
We have had several picture submitted from several different people and often the camp location isn’t included. For example, the picture from today was submitted with a few others so they might come from the same camp.
We started off publishing multiple times a day but we ran through submissions really quickly. We’re trying to keep the same form of confessions and also trying to avoid direct copies* of previous confessions. If we got more confessions then it would be easier for us to publish more a day. In addition, there is also a time lag between receiving a submission, editing it, creating it, and queueing it. We are people too, with outside lives that we enjoy living.
*If you have a submission involving/related to/directly stating about your showering habits, please look through the archive to make sure yours is different from a published submission.
when you submit do you add who submits? I would like to submit some confessions but I don't want you to include my info.
I will only add the name if someone explicitly asks me to. It hasn’t happened yet so all submissions have been posted anonymously. There is only one person who sees the message box and therefore the sender. And if you’re really worried you can submit anonymously as well.
