Midwest kids got to summer camp. There is something very special about being away from your parents for the first time, sleeping under the stars, hiking and canoeing.
Jami Gertz
I’m a good dad. I’m an evolved dad. You know, you see a lot of guys when they’re in training camp, they go off, do their own thing. But I’m in the midst of it. Swim lessons? I’m there. Changing diapers, teething, doctor’s appointments, I’m there 24/7.
Demetrious Johnson
Boot camp was the first time I got a heavy dose of discipline. It was the best thing that ever happened to me.

Acting school was summer camp, and I needed concentration camp. I had so many different ideas swirling between culture and how to tie things together.
Ajay Naidu
I know I got to do something that’s one in a million, to escape a refugee camp, to come to this country and have so many doors open for me. So I want to go back and make a difference and give motivation or hope to all the kids that never got to leave or have the privilege that I did.
Halima Aden
The only thing I can give to young gay people is that when I was growing up, there were no role models that were blokey that were men. Everybody was flamboyant and camp, and I remember going, ‘That’s not me, so even though I think I am gay, I don’t think I fit into this world.’
Russell Tovey
Yea, I really don’t lift much during training camp, I just focus on strength and conditioning, but in the time off, that’s where I’ll really hit the squats and the dead lifts. That’s when I tend to put on some weight, get to about 230lbs.
Ryan Bader
Crime stories are our version of sitting round a camp fire and telling tales. We enjoy being scared under safe circumstances. That’s why there’s no tradition of crime writing in countries that have wars.
Camilla Lackberg
Every training camp is important so you can show you’re improving and staying consistent.
Aly Raisman
The other thing was that when I was at the University of Miami, we ran a pro-style offense and defense. I started each year by going to a pro training camp, I visited with various pro coaches, and I did this for five years.
Jimmy Johnson
We all want to be special, to stand out; there’s nothing wrong with this. The irony is that every human being is special to start with, because we’re unique to start with. But we then go through some sort of boot camp from the age of zero to about 18 where we learn everything we can about how not to be unique.
Karl Marlantes
I clearly remember the pain of partition; the whole of Delhi was seeing the struggle of refugees. We stayed near Roshanara Bagh, and the whole city appeared like a refugee camp.
I am happy with my family and my colleagues and want to continue making my own kind of cinema. I have never belonged to any camp and have no friends in the industry. Most of them will pay lip service, but when it comes to doing, they tend to shy away.
Sunny Deol
I like to camp and to not have to check in to airports and hotels and I love to just drive, man.
Mats Wilander
When I am on the pitch, I just want to play, I don’t care if it is the Nou Camp or not; I just want to play.
Edgar Davids
I feel like my early experiences of acting, and I think a lot of other actors’ too, are probably at camp or school plays where you get to have great range. At camp, I remember getting to play a 50-year-old man.
Matt McGorry
Going into your rookie year, whatever team does take you, and you get to camp, there’s going to be a lot of talent in that gym. You’re going to walk in a gym – and no matter what – there’s going to be a lot of talent.
Sue Bird
My mother lived in Holland, and during World War II was incarcerated in a Japanese camp for three years.
Jane Seymour
For me, take Tiger Woods. I always thought he was great, but I never truly understood how good he was until I had the chance to go to Tiger Woods Golf Camp. He taught me how to swing and was hitting the ball, and this dude was unreal.
Larry Fitzgerald
In the G.O.O.D. Music camp, we all come around, and we show ourselves and present ourselves as artists only.
Puppet camp truly redefined my preconceptions of puppetry… I’ll never forget learning that before a puppet can speak… he has to inhale. It’s those details that make the characters truly come to life.
Rob McClure
Given that I often wear shorts with a T-shirt, baseball cap, and backpack most days, a crew-neck shirt gives me the appearance of an undercover cop on the way to a sting operation at a summer camp.
Josh Gondelman
I have a camp fascination with all things musical theatre – I’ve even got the box set of ‘Britannia High.’
Karla Crome
It’s a joy to help others. One of our longtime favorites is Rawhide Boys Camp, located 45 miles west of Green Bay.
Bart Starr
When I was a Real Sociedad player, we lost on every occasion we visited Camp Nou. Maybe that is normal for a small team, but with Liverpool and Real Madrid, you expect more.
Xabi Alonso
Just like footballers want to play at Wembley, the Nou Camp and the Bernabeu, boxers have their dream arenas too.
Ricky Hatton
The ‘army camp’ that coordinates the agencies of our brain is vulnerable, both in itself and from within. In effect, he who can know and master its functioning and psychology from outside can become twice its master.
Tariq Ramadan
I am an Eagle Scout. I am very proud of that. When I was in college I worked summers in a Boy Scout summer camp. I was a nature conservation director.
Andrew R. Wheeler
That’s the whole part of playing football and having training camp. Coming in and recognizing how players play.
Jason Pierre-Paul
I think that Vancouver as well as Canada needs a boot camp for young entrepreneurs. We have already seen tens if not hundreds of people put their names forward to be involved in the program, and we just think this is an amazing way to accelerate what they’re doing.
Ryan Holmes
Do you know what a showmance is? It is like being at a summer camp when you’re a teenager. You spend summertime away from your home. When you spend three months very closely with someone at a particular place, it is like a summer love. You have no choice but to get involved with that person.
Maksim Chmerkovskiy
I do not believe in God; his existence has been disproved by Science. But in the concentration camp, I learned to believe in men.
Jean-Paul Sartre
We had training camp for a week, and we used the actual military drills of that period. We didn’t have to work out much after hours, because going up and down hills all day was a good workout in itself.
Tom Berenger
You go into the Lions camp with preconceived ideas about players and teams and then find guys are actually very different, and the beauty of the Lions is that all those characters are moulded into it. I find that exciting.
Brian O’Driscoll
As a child, I loved to sing. When I was 8, my mother sent my brother and me to a summer music theater program in Texas. We did ‘Guys and Dolls’ at the camp, and I was so depressed when it was over. That’s when I realized that this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
Renee Elise Goldsberry
To be a successful fighter now, you have to go to a camp.

I am not the life and soul of the camp, but I do speak a lot throughout the team and to everyone.

When I work in San Francisco doing stand-up, I usually schedule it for July, and we’ll drive up the coast and camp in Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Big Sur, and we’ll just camp our way up the coast, and then we’ll get to San Francisco and hang out there for four days.
Greg Fitzsimmons
For those of us who cry out for gun control, our fears cannot be eliminated as long as the country remains an armed camp in which the most troubled among us can find ways to appropriate one of the easily available weapons in all our communities.
Robert Dallek
I think camp is a really fascinating thing, and it’s hard to define and hard to apply consciously. It’s almost something you take from material that’s already existed in the world, a reading of the world. But I think it speaks of a long tradition of gay reading of the world, before gays were allowed to be visible.
Todd Haynes
I remember, when I lived in a refugee camp, it was the people who weren’t Somali, the people who came from Western countries, who helped the most. I remember being six and thinking, ‘I want to be one of those women,’ because I knew how much they helped us.
Halima Aden
One summer, my friend and I went to summer camp, and I acted in some plays there, and I fell in love with it.

Sam is there, Sam has been playing well, he has been doing great in camp.
Latrell Sprewell
I had a fairy shrine in my room, and I went to fairy LARPing camp, and I played Dungeons and Dragons in the woods.
Natalie Prass
I know people didn’t think I’d become a world champion – even people probably in my own camp, my own team, didn’t think I’d become a world champion this quickly.
Amir Khan
I’ve always loved working out. When I was little, my dad used to make me and my sister do 10 press-ups every day before we brushed our teeth in the morning. It was like a boot camp! Then I did a lot of athletics at school and was a dancer.
Fleur East
Every camp I do, I’m always trying to figure out how I can help kids get better, so holding the actual title of coach, that doesn’t matter to me. In life, I’m a coach. I think we all are.
Ray Allen
I’m the champ that puns the camp! That’s what I always wanted. I wanted to be seen as a main eventer, and it’s a lot of responsibility now. I feel like I’m gonna deliver on this opportunity. I want to take it and make sure everybody knows that this is why I’m the champ.
Becky Lynch
Some people might say, ‘It’s training camp, the grind of things, can’t wait to get to the regular season. Things will be easier.’ But I look forward to it.
Teddy Bridgewater
The truth of it is when you get an audience to laugh and camp along with you, it’s much easier to scare ’em again because they’re using two sides of their emotions. It’s much easier to set them up for a good cheap thrill scare again.
Robert Englund
The act of exercising at 6 A.M. really helped me. It made me not dread the workout part of my day all day long. Also, when I went to have a tiny cheat, I would really think back to how hard I worked and thought, ‘It is not worth going to boot camp an extra week over one peanut butter cup.’
Marissa Jaret Winokur
However, the combination of civil resistance, of large-scale mass activities and strikes, with a certain degree of revolutionary violence, could provoke a crisis in the enemy’s camp that would ultimately lead to essential changes.
Joe Slovo
I work with a lot of kids. Every year, for the past fifteen years, I work at Comedy Camp where I work with a lot of kids.
Dane Cook
You should make an effort on stage because it’s a performance. The stage should be glittery and camp, but I don’t go down the shops in full stage gear.
Sophie Ellis-Bextor
I think that some people like to be someone other than themselves when acting, while others are most themselves. I fall into the second camp. For me, acting is a great exercise in getting to the truth about myself.
Kerry Bishe
I have a massive hat collection, which includes many, many fedoras I haven’t worn because of the stigma. I buy them thinking, ‘I’m going to make people accept fedoras!’ But with the way I dress, if I wore a fedora, I’d be in the camp that gives them a bad name.
Brendon Urie
You don’t wanna peak too early in training camp, but you don’t wanna be out of shape or not to the point where you’re able to peak. It’s a science to be able to find the happy medium where your body and mind are at their best.
Chris Weidman
Robert Easter Jr. is a tough fighter who I have to take very seriously and I do, and that’s why we did a nine-week training camp and got the great sparring, got the right training, the right diet, everything.
Mikey Garcia
Basic Instinct 2′ is camp, not because it takes itself too seriously, nor because it sends itself up, but because we are not sure quite how seriously it wants us to take it.
Mark Fisher
Greg White got a boxer because I said I was getting one. I was talking about getting a boxer since before training camp.
Gaines Adams
Our Congress should stay in session all summer – camp out in D.C., and turn off the AC. Put on their stuffiest powdered wigs and sweat it out, until they give in and put their John Hancocks (and their Nancy Pelosis and their John Boehners) on at least one meaningful law that no one wants to repeal.
Kevin Bleyer
People can say what they want. It is the people inside the camp who count to me. The people around me.
Owen Farrell
If I could, I would have my son on tour the whole time. But he has school, summer camp, and he has to see his mother.
Nate Mendel
The worst 24- to 36-hour period of my whole camp, the part I like the least, is the part where I’ve gotta cut 13 to 15 pounds of water weight.
Ben Askren
At this camp I had the unique experience of showing all these seasoned Westerners that it was possible to make a fire by the friction of two sticks. This has long been a specialty of mine; I use a thong and a bow as the simplest way.
Ernest Thompson Seton
If I have to be remembered for something, I want it remembered that I really liked children and was a good camp counselor.
Francis Ford Coppola
People like to make fun of the fans who camp out but people have renaissance fairs; people do Civil War re-enactments; people do what they like. I’m tired of hearing people rage on the fans. If you don’t like ‘Twilight,’ don’t buy a ticket.
Anna Kendrick
I really wanted to make ‘Everest’ visceral, real. One thing that amazed me when I was scouting in base camp is the volume of Everest: It’s humbling. I wanted to find a way to bring that to the screen. One way was 3D.
Baltasar Kormakur
It’s been a dream of mine to run my own summer camp. I went to one as a kid, and I put on productions, and got lots of confidence.
Idina Menzel
I’m constantly not on the right side of history. I sympathize with the soldiers in the enemy’s camp. For example in WWII, we know the Nazis and the Japanese were wrong. But I sympathize with the individual story of a soldier who was drafted into that.
Chloe Zhao
I had to move out of my home in New York when I was 13. I left all my friends, family, my dogs, and summer camp… all that stuff behind. I moved out to L.A. with my mom and brother. That was difficult for me. I think the hardest part was seeing all my friends graduate without me and go to college.
Madison Beer
Show me a university which is a hotbed of thin-skinned offence-taking, where every unacceptable idea is policed and every person who happens to hold one is hounded out of a job, and I will show you a university that isn’t a university but an ideological prison camp and indoctrination centre.
Howard Jacobson
Most days I struggle just to be accepted into the camp of plain old feminists. This is mainly because I am not by nature ideological and generally suspicious of people who are.
Hanna Rosin
What battle has ever been won by staying in camp and talking to your fellow soldier?
Dana Loesch
I didn’t get a training camp in Chicago. I was behind a lot in the plays, in the team’s chemistry. Everything in the organization was going in a different direction.
Michael Carter-Williams
When you come into Camp Randall Stadium to play a game, you better double-clutch your chinstrap because you’re going to be in a smash-mouth game.
Keith Jackson
The events of the day’s march are now becoming so dreary and dispiriting that one longs to forget them when we camp; it is an effort even to record them in a diary.
Robert Falcon Scott
The real evil of the Russian communist state is not communism. It is the secret police and the concentration camp.
John Boyd Orr
Kerri and I met at theatre camp when were 16 years old, which is pretty lame. The rest of us met when we founded the State at New York University in 1988. Most of our adult lives have been spent bickering with these people.
Thomas Lennon
There are a lot of people who are considered ‘camp’ who have no idea how ridiculous they are.
Fred Schneider
I did a gig as a standup when I was eight years old. I went on holiday with my family to this holiday camp and they had a talent competition and I entered as a standup.
Romesh Ranganathan
You know when I really realized like ‘wow’ what a gift this is was when I sang at camp and a girl wrote me a letter and said the song that I sung kept her from committing suicide.
Charles King
Some of the best times are training camp and getting your ideas in how you’d like them.
Mike D’Antoni
Every team that goes into training camp thinks they’re a Super Bowl contender.
Jason Pierre-Paul
My mom set up relief programs in third world countries. We would do things like go to Bogota with her instead of summer camp.
Clark Johnson
The views of religious-Zionist rabbis are of course worthy of being heard, yet they represent a very defined and very narrow camp within the Israeli spectrum. This is not the way to shape the perception of future division and brigade commanders.
Yair Lapid
We were fortunate enough to have several good books detailing the camps and the women. Some were by the survivors. I also got to talk to some of the women who had been in the camp, survivors.
Glenn Close
I was pretty much into punk rock and that’s all I cared about. I was into Green Day and the Ramones. I wanted to get a guitar so I could play punk songs because this kid taught me power chords at summer camp.
Ezra Furman
I was lucky enough to watch my son hit a grand slam at sports camp, and that was great. Yes, I may miss some things, but honestly, I think I get to see more than a dad who works a daily 9 to 5.
CC Sabathia
When I was 11, I went to space camp at the Space Center in Texas, near where I grew up. There, I met video-game-industry pioneer Richard Garriott, better known to gamers everywhere as ‘Ultima’ creator Lord British.
Steve Jurvetson
I used to go to surf camp in the summers, and I remember going to the beach and thinking my style was so different from all of the other kids.
Camille Rowe
At some point in your life, if you live in Venezuela, you come across or own a cuatro. Either at school, either at camp, either at a friend’s house, at a birthday or Christmas or bar mitzvah, you end up with a cuatro. It’s like a must.
Devendra Banhart
I constantly peed in my pants up until the 8th grade and wore an extra-large sailor uniform from kindergarten to 8th grade because my mom was scared I’d grow out of it. So I learned to make fun of myself at school and summer camp.
Ali Wong
We spent a lot of time talking about politics at home. We went to the camp at Greenham Common.
Liz Truss
I do have a camp side to my personality, but I also have a ‘Top Gear’-loving, football-loving side.
Gok Wan
When most kids were doing summer camp, I was doing the Arkansas festival circuit, passing out push cards, and shaking hands and tagging along with my dad to every nook and cranny in the state of Arkansas.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders
Most Japanese-Americans have that legacy. The camp experience is something of a calling card between them. They say, ‘So, where were you interned?’
Tamlyn Tomita
On balance, my life has been a constant stream of blessings rather than disappointments and failures and tragedies. I wish I had been re-elected. I think I could have kept our country at peace. I think I could have consolidated what we achieved at Camp David with a treaty between Israel and the Palestinians.
Jimmy Carter
When training camp comes, all the guys in my running back room will see how hard I go every day.
Frank Gore
The Parc des Volcans in Rwanda, where I conduct most of my studies, is heavily infested with poachers and herdsmen, whose cattle graze right through my camp area. Park boundaries have no meaning to these tribesmen.
Dian Fossey
We were raised very colour blind. I had gone to school and to camp for so long with white people, I think I was like 15 years old before I realised I was black.
Ilyasah Shabazz
In talking with affirmative-action administrators and with blacks and whites in general, I found that supporters of affirmative action focus on its good intentions and detractors emphasize its negative effects. It was virtually impossible to find people outside either camp.
Shelby Steele
I don’t want to go out there and jeopardize myself getting hurt in camp.
Le’Veon Bell
When things are tough in training camp; when things are tough in season; when it’s good, you don’t want guys hitting too high or too low or depressed. It’s just draining for everybody.
Derek Carr
John Kerry had a very vivid imagination as a young person. I mean, he actually did go and take his bicycle from Norway to go camp in Sherwood Forest to be around the ghost of Robin Hood.
Douglas Brinkley
In training camp, you know what each person is doing.
Mo Farah
About guns, about hunting, it’s safe to say I know nothing. The last gun I fired was a musket at Boy Scout camp.
Rosecrans Baldwin
I try to do a variety of physical activities. I spin, take classes at Barry’s Boot Camp, go to the gym, use home DVD’s of ChaLEAN Extreme workouts, which I think are brilliant, and I run around after my three girls. Also, let’s be honest. The amount of laundry I do is an exercise in and of itself!
Alicia Coppola
The classic French blanch-and-cool technique I learned at Chez Panisse yields the kind of brilliant, picturesque vegetables we all want to see on restaurant plates. Long-cooked foods, on the other hand, fall firmly into the ‘ugly but good’ camp of the Tuscan cucina povera, where flavor far outshines looks.
Samin Nosrat
Much of the music I remember from camp was unofficial: the songs a counselor would play for us on acoustic guitar or that an older camper would sing after telling us a tale of his hard-knock life. We couldn’t get enough of ‘One Tin Soldier’ or ‘Cat’s in the Cradle.’
Carrie Brownstein
After he retired, Dad worked at my uncle’s boat company, a camp for kids, and eventually became County Commissioner for a term. He is known around town, works at the Food Pantry my mother helped start, and is a very serious member of Kiwanis.
Rick Tumlinson
I go to Milwaukee, I get cut, that really put a funk in me. I’m like, ‘Man, it’s over for me. I can’t even make it in training camp now?’
Gerald Green
The best part about the movie, and everybody seems to rave about it, is the boot camp part.
R. Lee Ermey
I am camp. Lots of gay men can’t cope with their campness. They are in denial about it.
Graham Norton
My first joke that ever aired on ‘Late Night’ was for a list of ‘Top 10 Least Popular Summer Camps.’ My contribution – ‘Camp Tick in beautiful Lyme, Connecticut’ – squeaked in at No. 10. Like a trip to Camp Tick, my time at ‘Late Night’ faded into memory like a short session at a dicey summer camp.
Nell Scovell
I’m very much into Barry’s Boot Camp… it’s the real deal.
Robert Rinder
At Camp David in 2000, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak offered the Palestinian leader Yasir Arafat 94 percent of the West Bank; ten years later, Ehud Olmert offered Abbas 93.6 percent with a one-to-one land swap.
Elliott Abrams
My giving birth was nothing when I think about all the people in Sri Lanka that have to give birth in a concentration camp.
When I look at how the banking world has changed and at the role Chinese banks, for example, play today, Germany, as an export-oriented economy, should be pleased to have a major global player in its camp.
Peer Steinbruck
I shall begin my march for Camp tomorrow morning. It was not in my power to move until I could procure shoes for the troops almost barefoot.
Anthony Wayne
Location is everything, I’d rather camp in the Lake District or Scotland than sit in a five-star hotel in Frankfurt.
Rory Bremner
My childhood memories include a time when the government confiscated my family’s possessions and exiled us to a camp in the B.C. Interior, just because my grandparents were from Japan.
David Suzuki
Always positive vibes in the Lingard camp.
Jesse Lingard
Bob Fosse, even though he wasn’t gay. He was certainly queer and had a huge effect on the ‘Hedwig’ film, as did Hal Ashby and Robert Altman, who had a weird butch queer feeling about him. His films almost flirted with camp but in an extremely realistic acting way.
John Cameron Mitchell
When I’ve trained as hard as I possibly can through training camp and I come to the end, where my body is worn out and I’m tired, I know I’m ready to peak.
Chris Weidman
The Chinese countryside has become a slave labour camp and dumping ground for every imaginable pollutant. The rural peasantry is being sucked dry by corrupt government tax collectors.
Vivek Agnihotri
If you look up what I did in Arizona, you’ll see that I fought my way through training camp. I didn’t have a problem fighting my teammates.
Baron Corbin
During rallies, it’s always crucial to make Nadal cover the whole width of the court. He likes to camp out in his backhand corner, spearing that big off-forehand diagonally across the court. So the backhand down the line is a vital shot, because it moves Nadal out of his most favoured position.
Tim Henman
All I did was pray to God, every day. In prison camp, the main prayer was, ‘Get me home alive, God, and I’ll seek you and serve you.’ I came home, got wrapped up in the celebration, and forgot about the hundreds of promises I’d made to God.
Louis Zamperini
My body was torn apart by an enemy hand grenade… upon arriving at Camp Bastion, I was labeled P.E.A. – patient expired on arrival. I flat-lined at Walter Reed.
Kyle Carpenter
Dave Camp has been very much influenced by, and often guided by, the radicalization of the Republican Party… and too often failed to speak out.
Sander Levin
I bought an island in 1987. It’s in one of the lakes in Canada. I went around it in my boat and went to the real estate office and bought it. It’s the best $65,000 I’ve ever spent. My family camp on it and we have great times there.
Dan Aykroyd
When I was a kid, I was a bit of a space geek. I loved the space program and all things NASA. I would read books about our solar system; I had pictures of the Space Shuttle on my bedroom wall. And yes, I even went to Space Camp.
Simon Sinek
We are all fed from hundreds and thousands of hands. Often we do not know whose they are nor how they work. Only a few of us ever visualize the hands that grope in the coal mines or push levers in the mills or handle axes in the lumber camp.
Louis MacNeice
The great thing about the Alice Cooper camp is that its a true family and there’s definitely a reason why he’s had such a long and successful career spanning over 50 years. You don’t get that far by not keeping good people around you.
Nita Strauss
I initially thought I would be an architect, maybe. So I went to architecture camp and quickly learned that I did not want to be an architect. I was like, ‘No. This is not for me.’
Robin Lord Taylor
When you first start out, people think this is super easy and you find your crew super quick. But you’ve really got to go through songwriter boot camp to find your people.
Julia Michaels
I met my wife in music camp. She’s got great ears, and we have a relationship where she’s not afraid to tell me anything. If something’s going on in my playing, she will tell me about it, and that’s very, very important.
Itzhak Perlman
Around the time Andre Villas-Boas became manager I went to a summer training camp in America. But when I got back, to my horror, I found that all my kit had been moved into the reserve team changing room. I was told I wasn’t allowed in the first team dressing room anymore.
Jermaine Jenas
I think TV in general is camp. ‘X Factor’ is camp, ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ is camp. Basically, an orange man comes down some stairs and waves at the camera. People are drawn to that.
Alan Carr
I don’t camp; I don’t hike. I hate bugs, and I’m phobic of snakes.
David Grann
There’s been a lot of crossing paths with the Yes camp over the years for me. The first one was when Dream Theater and Yes toured together in 2004, which was a lot of fun.
Mike Portnoy
To illustrate to the Indians the advantages the white race had in the telephone I divided a body of warriors from Sitting Bull’s camp into two parties and had them talk to each other over the telephone line.
Nelson A. Miles
Any football player will tell you that in July you get this dark cloud over you if you know camp’s coming.
Chris Long
‘Rocket Science’ is really where I fell in love with filmmaking, I think ‘Camp’ was incredible, but it was so bizarre, and I was trying to find my footing in this world where you don’t have an audience for immediate validation.
Anna Kendrick
I have played at the Nou Camp and the Bernabeu.
Raul Jimenez
The name ‘reservation’ has a negative connotation among Native Americans – an intern camp of sorts.
John Russell
It was a good experience for me to be in the same camp as Minto when he was preparing for Shane Cameron, to see the weaknesses and strengths he brings.
Joseph Parker
If I was in a refugee camp somewhere on the Pakistani border, of course I’d want to come to Australia.
Tony Abbott
From age six to 12, I lived in seven different countries, moving from one refugee camp to another, hoping we would be wanted.
Clemantine Wamariya
After a training camp workout, my body is eager to replace nutrients and energy that are lost during the workout. It’s best to have a quick bite about 30 minutes after practice. I like to have yogurt and granola, the combination of carbs and protein helps me recover after a long and tiring workout.
Troy Polamalu
When you’re on a win streak, your confidence is high, and it means everything in your camp has been working and it means you’re on the right track.
Cub Swanson
As a kid, I was terrified. I was a bed wetter, and I had to go to sleepaway camp every summer, which was humiliating and terrifying. I had lots of insecurities and scaredness.
Sarah Silverman
I do dance music, and I can be pretty camp myself from time to time.
Kylie Minogue
I fly myself everywhere. I like all kinds of flying, including practical flying for search and rescue. And I also like to fly into the backcountry, usually the Frank Church Wilderness in Idaho. I go with a group of friends, and we set up camp for about five days and explore little dirt strips and canyons.
Harrison Ford
I hadn’t seen that many movies that really go deep enough into the fears of playing music or the language that musicians can use to treat each other or, like, the way that you can see it dehumanize and the way that it can feel like boot camp.
Damien Chazelle
Space camp was actually, like, the best summer of my life. It was amazing. But I thought I wanted to be a computer programmer, and among computer science folks, Turing is this object of cult-like fascination.
Graham Moore
If anyone in the E.U. thinks Italy should keep being a landing point and refugee camp, they have misunderstood.
Matteo Salvini
I never hate my bullies from high school. I actually kind of appreciate them. If it wasn’t for that boot camp training of how the world treats gay people and especially drag queens, I don’t know if I would have survived as well as I have.
Sharon Needles
Holdouts never go well. Just look at history. It always ends badly. It wouldn’t be the best decision. I make a lot of money. I pull up to camp in Rolls-Royces.
Antonio Brown
The only time I’ve really been away from my kids to do work was doing Shall We Dance because they both were in camp and it was the first time in twenty years that I haven’t been with my kids.
Susan Sarandon
Every vacation was taking my brother and I to camp, whether it was football camp, wrestling camp, or whatever it was.
Sean McDermott
‘Camp’ is a vision of the world in terms of style – but a particular style. It is the love of the exaggerated.
Susan Sontag
We belong to the camp of peace. We believe in peace. We believe that our one God wishes us to live in peace and wishes peace upon us, for these are His teachings to all the followers of the three great monotheistic religions, the Children of Abraham.
Hussein of Jordan
When I know that I trained real hard and I had a good training camp, that’s when I’m very confident. But sometimes I don’t train hard and I don’t feel that confident.
Forrest Griffin
My father did not have a lot of security in his life. He did odd jobs. He had a real struggle to make money. He lost a lot of time in his 20s, after the war, because he was sent to a forced-labour camp in Siberia.
Hirokazu Kore-eda
I have showed things in sparring and camp that I don’t show in fights.
Andre Ward
I always try to describe making movies like summer camp, or some holiday where you spend all day, every day with a new group of people whom you kind of love and then never see again.
Eddie Redmayne
The journey has been long, fleeing a war, living in a refugee camp, coming to Canada is what we were dreaming as a family to get here. Now that we’re here I’m excited that I’m a Canadian citizen.
Alphonso Davies
I concentrate on training. I go to the gym. I want to put the football first, not the social media or what’s going on around the camp.
Mohamed Salah
My first kiss was at a sleep-away camp, and it was very awkward and over quickly. And that was that. It was just the weirdest thing, and I thought, ‘That was it? Get out of here!’ I didn’t even know his last name.
Jillian Hervey
I had time with my mother, but I really lived with my father. One time he gave all his salary so I could travel to a training camp. He couldn’t pay the rent, but he did that.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic
I hate it when people talk about Buffy as being campy… I hate camp, I don’t enjoy dumb TV. I believe Aaron Spelling has single-handedly lowered SAT scores.
Joss Whedon
Every year, once a year, in Maryland, I go for a week and overnight camp with about 50 to 60 kids with muscular dystrophy, all ages, seven to 21. And it is really fun. I have some great friends there and wonderful counselors.
Mattie Stepanek
Theater school is essentially like training. It’s boot camp. It’s like an academy to put you through all these different situations that sometimes are more extreme than what you’ll come across in the field. But now you’re emotionally prepared for it so that when it does happen, it’s not a big surprise.
Baron Vaughn
‘Revenge’ is a shameless soap in the style of Eighties shoulder-pad slap-offs like ‘Dallas,’ ‘Dynasty’ and ‘Falcon Crest.’ Yet there’s no wink-wink camp.
Rob Sheffield
We left Dayton, September 23, and arrived at our camp at Kill Devil Hill on Friday, the 25th.
Orville Wright
What happens is that every August photographers camp out in Hyannis Port. So anytime I go down to the beach, or go to the pier or whatever, there’s no avoiding them.
John F. Kennedy Jr.
I hate camping, but I love summer camp.
Zooey Deschanel
I have done six films with the Bhatt camp and I know that they are good at marketing, packaging the film and they are very good with music, a track record that they have proven since 25 years.
Rahul Roy
I did 20 years in the Navy. I joined the Navy right out of high school and went through Navy boot camp, went to SEAL training, got done with that, and then showed up at a SEAL team, where I did 20 years. That was pretty much my whole adult life.
Jocko Willink
What they really do during boot camp above all else is they create conditions of extreme stress – whether through sleep deprivation or the cold and muddy weather or just noise or whatever it is – and you have to make decisions, not just for yourself, but for the Marines you’re supposed to be leading at any given moment.
Conor Lamb
Few of us will forget the wail of mingled grief, rage and horror which rose from the camp when the Indians returned to it and recognized their slaughtered warriors, women, and children.
John Gibbon
There are always people who are desperate to put you in your one camp and never let you leave. The idea that you could be interested in the Yazidi community and also in lipstick blows people’s minds. It’s a really short-sighted, Stone Age attitude; it’s boring, actually.
Stacey Dooley
My job is to teach someone something they never knew, but it should not be like you’re in a prisoner-of-war camp. I’m supposed to be teaching you but also entertaining you. You’re giving me an hour of your time. It should be lively. We’re on a hunt, it’s a mystery, and it’s amazing.
Bonnie Bassler
Rehab is amazing. It reminds me of football camp. Kind of like the Washington Redskins camp I went to as a kid.
Rob Ford
Fighting for kids has been my lifelong mission. Right out of high school, I went to work at a camp that served disadvantaged adolescents. When I became a recreation therapist, I worked with children battling severe mental illness.
Laura Kelly
I’m always in the gym, six hours a day. I’m in the gym all the time, six days a week. It’s one of the reason why my training camps are a little bit shorter. My training camp is five weeks long because I only need four weeks to get into fighting shape.
Benson Henderson
I have recurring nightmares about being in a Nazi concentration camp with all my family and constantly being sent to solitary confinement.
Matt Bellamy
If one is reported as having set up camp overseas, it’s as if one has made oneself unavailable.
Julian Sands
I went out on the road when I was 12 years old, playing with the Sullivan Family Gospel Singers. That was the summer of 1972. We played Pentecostal churches, camp meetings, George Wallace campaign rallies and bluegrass festivals. As a kid, I had grown up watching quartets that were very entertaining.
Marty Stuart
I was 12 when it really hit me. I did children’s theatre camp during the summers and played a fairy in ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream.’ The next summer, I played Clytemnestra in ‘Agamemnon’ and I was like, ‘OK, this is amazing.’
Rachel McAdams
In the last camp they all ate grass, until the authorities forbade them to pull it up. They were accustomed to having the fruits of their little communal gardens stolen by the guards, after they had done all the work; but at the last camp everything was stolen.
Martha Gellhorn
The Romans weren’t trying to kill all the Jews, but they did destroy Jewish resistance to Roman rule. Jerusalem was turned into a Roman army camp, and it was a total devastation.
Elaine Pagels
I could lie and pretend that I hunt and camp, but that wouldn’t be me. Clothes? Shopping? That’s stuff I like!
Ryan Seacrest
I went to University of Illinois team camp. And that was a big deal for me. I got MVP of the camp, but they offered another kid from the camp, which was fine. I laughed with the couple coaches I know who were there at the time, who were part of recruiting the other guy.
Aaron Rodgers
I admire the Elsie Tanners and Barbara Windsors of the world: people who have crawled back from the abyss. I’m quite camp in that respect.
Jenny Eclair
You go into training camp and you fight for jobs and often times things work themselves out. Like players just take the job, they play so well, they win it, and makes it easier on the coach to decide who is the guy that gets those minutes.
Danny Ainge
One of my favorite albums is Bob Gibson and Bob Camp, ‘At the Gate of Horn.’ It was a really dynamic album, almost like The Beatles, and way before its time… around 1960 or so.
Roger McGuinn
We record in the spirit of the Berry Gordy camp and Gamble & Huff, where people were writing up to a dozen quality songs within a day because the competition was that hard.
Black Thought
I was a lifeguard, camp counselor, the president of the YMCA Leaders Corps. I also took piano lessons. I was a dancer.
Chirlane McCray
We’ve noted that the Clinton camp was the first to get it out there, trying to say there was something untoward about the speech Melania Trump gave. It’s just another example, as far as we’re concerned, that when Hillary Clinton is threatened by a female, the first thing she does is try to destroy the person.
Paul Manafort
To go into Key Area every day, sold out, it was hard to come in there and get a win against us. That’s when we used to make people understand, you can’t come in and get a win against us. We were probably one of the hardest arenas to win in. Our fans were crazy. They would camp out.
Gary Payton
‘The Lucky One’ features a young concentration camp survivor named Peter Rashkin – who’s about the age my dad was when he started at CBS – working at the Oyster Bar, trying to acclimate to his new country and outrun the memories of the daily he left behind.
Jenna Blum
Unlike many in the conservative camp, I accept theories of global warming, and accept that man-made activity has played a part in global warming. My differences have only been on what the solutions should be.
Bradley A. Smith
When I went through Marine boot camp in Paris Island, South Carolina, we actually did have bayonets that we trained with.
Josh Mandel
My first summer in college, I interned for Arena Stage in D.C. and taught a disastrous class on standup comedy to middle schoolers at the Arena Stage camp. I had never taught anything before, and needless to say, I quickly lost control of the class.
Alexandra Petri
It’s one thing to get a letter from your kid at camp telling you he wants to come home. It’s another to get a letter from a grown child saying they’re coming back to live with you!
Walt Handelsman
You can either be a quitter, a camper or a climber. I don’t want to quit, and I certainly don’t want to camp.
Monty Williams
I’ve paid the price; I definitely have a reputation that precedes me, and there is a camp that plots my demise. But then again… it’s funner that way.
Rufus Wainwright
As women, many of us have internalised our lives as a prolonged version of boot camp, a sort of Darwinian call to toughen up or perish. As young women, we are terrified that men we consider our mentors can turn out to be monsters.
Barkha Dutt
My love of wine happened organically while being in Napa Valley during training camp while playing for the Oakland Raiders in the 90s.
Charles Woodson
I am not in the camp of ‘Russia has to be our enemy, and they have to be that way forever,’ and I think sometimes we fight about from the past.
Cenk Uygur
Some of the best conversations I’ve had are sitting around a camp fire.
Robyn Davidson
I like what I am doing. I enjoy all parts of the game – the team building, training camp, game days, the excitement of Sunday… it beats working.
Bill Belichick
I hate light… I feel like at night, it’s safer. If anything happens, there’s a way to hide at night. Another thing I hate about light is it reminds me about being in a refugee camp and being outside.
Clemantine Wamariya
Campaign boot camp started as an opportunity to work in a grassroots way with people who were running for Congress. Colleagues on the Democratic National Committee were batting around different possibilities. I said, ‘We should have boot camps.’
Christine Pelosi
When I came to Afghanistan, I couldn’t choose the training camp; al Qaeda and the Arabs ran the camps. I said, ‘Hey, I want to help.’ They said I could not until I had training. I said, ‘OK, I’ll take the training.’
Mohamedou Ould Slahi
I hope what’s different for not only the channel ‘It’s Grace’ 2014, but for the brand overall, is I hope to continue to expand into other areas of creative content and original content. We have ‘Camp Takota’ coming out on Valentine’s Day – we’re all so pumped for it! It’s so exciting!
Grace Helbig
I used to think that, when I was a director, I would have a very specific vision of what everything would look like, but now I am more of a camp counselor.
Jill Soloway
My memories of camp – I was four years old to eight years old – they’re fond memories.
George Takei
Some days I have off like Thursday and Sunday but typically Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday are dedicated to training if I’m in fight camp.
Demetrious Johnson
I always wanted to be an actor. It sort of prevented that whole – I never had any of that kind of angsty period old and doing musicals at camp and community theater and plays at school; it was just always what I most enjoyed and always what I intended to pursue.
Joshua Malina
I came to know Christ at the age of 13 during church camp at Glorieta, New Mexico.
Bart Millard
I was 12 years old and in summer camp. I started a company called Aardvark Industries, which provided basic services to camp counselors.
Jon Taffer
Once you look up, and it’s Week 14 or 15, and it’s crunch time, you can’t all of a sudden turn on a switch and say, ‘Hey guys, we have to step up and be brothers, be family.’ That’s stuff that is developed in the offseason, training camp, or throughout the season.
Malcolm Jenkins
Camp was something I’d never heard of until I started working with Susanne Bartsch – then I heard it all the time.
Amanda Lepore
We practice, we work out, we go to camp, we go to OTAs to win games. So all that work goes in and you want to win games.
Luke Kuechly
Typically in training camp, especially as I’ve gotten older, we were always very selective with the plays. If it was a pass or a look I needed to get in the run game or pass protection, I was always in there to get it.
Greg Olsen
In my head, at least, the business of spinning stories has no closing time. Twists in my characters’ lives, glimpses of their secrets, obstacles to their dreams… all arrive unbidden when I’m getting cash at the ATM, walking my son to camp, singing a hymn at a wedding.
Julia Glass
Just because I haven’t fought wrestlers doesn’t mean I’m not wrestling in every camp.
Dustin Poirier
When I was seventeen, I worked as a counsellor at a co-ed sleep-away camp for eight weeks. I loved it but it could be harrowing – it was far too much responsibility for someone my age.
Harlan Coben
Long before, and fully independent of, anything Congress did, President Obama made clear that he was going to preserve the indefinite detention system at Guantanamo even once he closed the camp. President Obama fully embraced indefinite detention – the defining injustice of Guantanamo – as his own policy.
Glenn Greenwald
Jason Voorhees was a kid who was picked on at summer camp, and Michael Myers was someone vilified by his own family. I think that’s why gay people like horror movies, because it’s seeking revenge on the privileged.
Sharon Needles
Saturday Night Live is such a comedy boot camp in a way, because you get to work with so many different people who come in to host the show and you get thrown into so many situations and learn how to think on your feet, so filmmaking actually feels slow, in a good way.
Will Ferrell
I fall into the camp that income inequality is the biggest problem we face.
Gina Raimondo
Without Kissinger’s work in the Middle East, with Sadat especially, I doubt if the Camp David Agreements five years later would have happened. His achievements over detente, the seeds of trust he sowed in a very distrustful and hostile Moscow, helped over a long period.
Alistair Horne
Gunther and I always shared the work. Each of us carried his own sleeping bag and tent, and porters carried the rest, until the highest camp, when we were on our own. Nobody helped us up there.
Reinhold Messner
My whole life I’ve hated to lose, no doubt about it. I’ve been guilty of that since I was 6 years old, at camp. I have always played to win. That’s who I am. But I never hurt anybody. The problem is when you’re perceived as being too aggressive where you hurt somebody or do something improper.
Peter M. Brant
I’m not a camp, throwaway queen; I’m not in Neverland. I’m not Jennifer Lopez with three people to pluck my eyebrows. I’ve made myself what I want to be – not everybody’s cup of tea. And people wanna have a look at me. I fully accept that. People have always wanted to have a look at me.
Pete Burns
I am 100% in the camp that says forgiveness is mostly about the forgiver.
Hillary Clinton
I come into camp every year with the hope and expectation of playing every game I’m available, every game that is available to me.
Joey Votto
Whenever you are in a new system, and you go on summer break and come back for training camp Day 1, you don’t know how much is really going to stick.
Brock Osweiler
I was naturalized right before Pearl Harbor. Nine days later, I would have been classified as an enemy alien. I might have been sent to a camp.
Olivia De Havilland
When you’re in a fight camp, you’re working your body harder than normal and it’s important to still look after yourself and to relax.
Jimi Manuwa
It was necessary to bluff the Japanese camp commanders, with whatever authority I could muster, that I had come officially to ensure that the surrender terms were being complied with and that living conditions for the POWs were being immediately improved.
Wilfred Burchett
In 1998, I was screening ‘Good Will Hunting’ at Camp David. And I was saying, ‘Nice to meet you, Mr. President. Nice to meet you, Mrs. Clinton.’ Madeleine Albright, Sandy Berger, Senator Daschle. It was an extraordinary day.
Lawrence Bender
When you’re away from home for a fight camp it’s the simple things that you miss the most. For me, that’s laying on the sofa with my daughters and spending quality family time and small things like that.
Jimi Manuwa
We all laughed. It was more like that whole thing that I was talking about earlier. You go to training camp and after the season is over, you might not see the guys for six months until you go back to training camp.
Bubba Smith
‘The Replacements’ is where I met Jon Favreau, and we just clicked like, you know, like kids at a camp. And he wrote my next movie, which was ‘Made.’
Faizon Love
Yes, well, you are quite camp, so I guess that he could see the point of you.
Diana Rigg
I never wanted to be a model. I never wanted to be a serious actress. I started off doing comedy. I did a stand-up comedy camp at the Laugh Factory, and I started out on Nickelodeon.
Amanda Bynes
In Michigan, if you want to act, it’s local theater, it’s high school theater and it’s going to camp and putting on plays in the summer, and I always loved doing that. There was something that just drew me to it.
James Wolk
Sometimes we have to sell UFC clothes, backpack, gloves, stuff like that, to make some extra money to finish a camp. It’s quite difficult, but we go on.
Jessica Andrade
We were American citizens. We were incarcerated by our American government in American internment camps here in the United States. The term ‘Japanese internment camp’ is both grammatically and factually incorrect.
George Takei
With a project like ‘The 5th Wave,’ you do something you would never do in your normal life; I would never have had S.W.A.T. training or boot camp, and there’s something really cool about learning stuff like that that’s really fun about our job.
Maika Monroe
In camp, you’re supposed to get comfortable at being uncomfortable; you have to be ready for when you are being punched in the mouth.
Paulie Malignaggi
If you’re in the WWE, it’s like show business boot camp. You learn a little bit about everything as far as show business is involved.
Chris Jericho
I was lucky enough to go to South America and kayak on the Amazon and camp in the jungle in 2011.
Helen Skelton
The biggest thing in training camp is you don’t always get to see the hitting aspect. Whether a guy is easy to tackle or whether he’s brought down easy.
Travis Kelce
Once, no self-respecting puncher considered himself dressed for work until he had his feet inside of a pair of $15 boots made by one of the favorite boot-makers, whose merits they discussed about the camp fires night after night.
Will C. Barnes
After the Battle of Midway there was a week in a rest camp at Pearl Harbor.
Jack Adams
People wonder if I’ll always be a part of this family and the answer is yes. My family has a lot of good energy going in one direction and because of it, we get a lot of things done. That’s why I’ll always spend a lot of time at Camp Phoenix.
River Phoenix
I never went to camp as a kid. I couldn’t get into an Ivy League school. I wouldn’t join a biker club.
Bob Saget
I understood why films were made, and if they made a lot of money, they were successful. All of these things I knew. As a ten-year-old boy, I didn’t really think a lot about finances or celebrity. I always viewed films as kind of what I imagined a summer camp to be like.
Henry Thomas
I was at a basketball camp when I was a kid and the lecturer used basketball spinning to teach us a lesson on never being satisfied with what you’ve accomplished. The lecturer talked about how the game of basketball was about learning to control the ball through dribbling and passing and shooting.
Frank Vogel
There were definitely some days at training camp that I got in fistfights.
Baron Corbin
When I was younger, I was a little less focused and I liked to have a lot of fun. I’d come in and do a five-week camp or maybe a four-week camp and do a five round fight.
Carlos Condit
Yeah, I like going away for camp. It brings out the savagery.
Rashad Evans
I worked in a software company in Bangalore and made short films during weekends. I learnt the basics during a one-day workshop called Film Camp Sanjay Nambiar.
Karthik Subbaraj
It’s one thing to experience your Broadway debut alone, but to share it with an entire company was like summer camp or a college experience, where you were really growing up together.
Jonathan Groff
I was a fan of the original ‘Dynasty’ – the fabulous fashion, the spectacular camp, but also the characters who carried the camp into surprisingly emotional places.
Sallie Patrick
It is very challenging to work with the Bhatt Camp as they have great sense of music.
Jeet Gannguli
When you go through a camp, you do a fight, you basically finish a chapter in your book.
Beneil Dariush
Over the tops of it, beginning to dusk under a young white moon, trailed a wavering ghost of smoke, and at the end of it I came upon the Pocket Hunter making a dry camp in the friendly scrub.
Mary Hunter Austin
I had played on the police athletic league, but my father had a unique thing, he always said, ‘Before you start going to basketball camp and doing all the things, you should learn about yourself first before somebody else starts telling you how to play.’
B. J. Armstrong
A lot of parents pack up their troubles and send them off to summer camp.
Raymond Duncan
In high school, I was sort of friends with the geeks and friends with the socials and everything else and not solidly in one camp. I’ve always lived on the borders.
Jennifer Pahlka
‘The Replacements’ is where I met Jon Favreau, and we just clicked like, you know, like kids at a camp.
Faizon Love
I’d prefer to do the safari on foot, like they did in the old days and just take the camp with you, not driving around in 4WDs.
Glenn McGrath
WWE is like showbiz boot camp.
Dean Ambrose
When we criticize in Iran the actions of the government, the fundamentalists say that we and the Bush Administration are in the same camp. The funny thing is that human rights activists and Mr. Bush can never be situated in the same group.
Shirin Ebadi
I’ve been a children’s book editor, a nanny, a camp counselor, a barista, a research lab assistant, and a movie theater ticket-taker.
Lisa Graff
I wanted to be an astronaut and wanted to go to space camp, but then I found out that I was too short to become an astronaut. My mom really made me believe that if I worked hard enough and if I really wanted to do it, I could do it.
Soleil Moon Frye
I remember my first camps when I was in high school, freshman year. I did a LeBron James camp, and I thought that was the coolest thing ever.
Jahlil Okafor
We did this two-week boot camp before we filmed the movie. I got to know everybody in the group and we became friends. We got really tight throughout those two weeks.
Shia LaBeouf
I believe in the Camp David accords.
Walter F. Mondale
I did a lot of camping in Africa, because what does it mean to go to Africa if you don’t camp along the river and see the animals come to drink at the water?
Jocelyn Wildenstein
When I was taken to the concentration camp of Auschwitz, a manuscript of mine ready for publication was confiscated. Certainly, my deep desire to write this manuscript anew helped me to survive the rigors of the camps I was in.
Viktor E. Frankl
When I used to leave behind my wife and kids and go into training camp for nine weeks at a time, I felt it, especially if you’re having young children and leaving them literally within weeks of them being born.
Naseem Hamed
I have a perfect life where I read; I go out into the wilderness and camp. I meet scientists and learn about their studies of wild animals, and then I come home… and start creating the world I have seen.
Jean Craighead George
Certainly I was a very religious child, a deeply weird and very emotional child, an only child with lots of imaginary friends and a very active imagination. I loved Sunday school and Bible camp and all that. I had my own white Bible with Jesus’ words printed in red in the text; I even spoke at youth revivals.
Lee Smith
Camp Southern Ground is a lot more than a camp. It’s more of a campus.
Zac Brown
When you are in an international camp, you are together for 10 days. You eat three times a day together. You spend a lot of time in each other’s company. That 10 days is very important ,and I think even times for training, times when you eat, meetings, this that and the other, a lot has got to change in that camp.
Chris Coleman
I had always wanted to be an actress. I went to summer theater camp from kindergarten on up until high school, and always had the leads in all the plays – even though they were at the YMCA – but it was something I always wanted to do.
Chloe Sevigny
I think there needs to be modified penalties in training camp because there’s severely modified compensation in training camp for all of us.
Aaron Rodgers
We’d only speak Korean at home. They wouldn’t let us have sleepovers and sent us away to Korean church camp during the summers. We had weird food concoctions, too, so instead of spaghetti bolognese, we had rice bolognese with kimchi.
Jamie Chung
I explained I wanted to descend as quickly as possible to camp IV in order to warm myself and gather a supply of hot drink and oxygen in the event I might need to go back up the mountain to assist descending climbers.
Anatoli Boukreev
I was planning to stay in the Army all my life, but I ended up being posted to a training camp in Wales and was so bored there, I wrote a novel.
Antony Beevor
I train great outside of camp but then once camp starts, it’s just a constant weight cut.
Michael Chiesa
With fashion, you go deep into a shoot for one day, but a movie lasts so much longer. It’s literally like going to summer camp.
Suki Waterhouse
My first few films were institutional comedies, and you’re on pretty safe ground when you’re dealing with an institution that vast numbers of people have experienced: college, summer camp, the military, the country club.
Harold Ramis
Every fight, every camp I learn about myself and I get better. But every fight I get better.
Dustin Poirier
Camp is always all business.
Michael Strahan
What I think is fair to say is that, coming out of the Republican camp, there have been efforts to suggest that perhaps I’m not who I say I am when it comes to my faith – something which I find deeply offensive, and that has been going on for a pretty long time.
Barack Obama
There are only two kinds of employees that I’ve run across in 30 years. There are ones that get results, and ones that make excuses. If you’re in that second camp, you’re not going to like Dish.
Charlie Ergen
I’ve been eight weeks into a fight camp, two weeks out from a fight, having paid coaches, booked plane tickets, and invested quite a bit of money in my camp, only to not be able to fight because my opponent got hurt. Boom. I’m out that money. It sucks.
Carlos Condit
I actually like snakes! When I was young, I was a boy scout nature camp counselor, and one of our projects was collecting snakes and creating an environment for them, so I’m quite familiar with snakes and think they’re fantastic creatures.
Harrison Ford
I was a wedding planner’s assistant for years. And I knew I did not want to have a traditional wedding because I had worked a million of them. So my husband and I got married at a sleepaway camp in the Berkshires.
Katie Lowes
I’m more in the Stones camp than the Beatles camp.
Jenny Lewis
During the final two weeks of training, our students work simulated game situations in which our staff members role-play as players, managers, and coaches. They are given immediate feedback following each camp game.
Jim Evans
In many ways, my life has begun before I was born. It began in the moment my mother Malka walked out of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.
Benny Gantz
My dad was born in 1930 in Lithuania, located in Eastern Europe. He was 9 years old when the war started, and his family was sent to the Kovno ghetto. They were soon separated and sent to the Dachau concentration camp in Germany.
Daniel Lubetzky
I was once that kid that needed a donation – that needed help to go to camp because my mom wasn’t able to pay for it.
Ha Ha Clinton-Dix
There’s no reason for me to go into a big dissertation about why I’m not getting the calls. The refs have to do their jobs as well. I even mentioned it in training camp to the refs when we had our little meeting.
Michael Vick
I got sent to a health camp when I was about 6 years old, and we all had to wear the same starchy blue uniform. The lady who took care of me after school knit me a burgundy sweater. It was the only thing that gave me any individuality.
Barbra Streisand
But when we came out of camp, that’s when I first realized that being in camp, that being Japanese-American, was something shameful.
George Takei
When I was 13, I was in my tent at Girl Scout camp, trying to change out of my bathing suit and talking at the same time. I fell out of the tent in front of everyone with my bathing suit around my ankles. I was humiliated – but no amount of humiliation has ever seemed to stop me.
Casey Wilson
I’d like to teach kids how to write songs. This will be my first year so I’m just as green as some of the rest of the folks. It’s like a music camp and I get to hang out with some of the past contestants.
Bo Bice
Football is so barbaric. Sometimes I wonder what I was thinking by playing it. I feel almost like I escaped from boot camp.
Brian Bosworth
The cool thing about WWE is it’s like entertainment boot camp. You’re performing in front of a live audience, a different audience every night. You’re doing promos in the ring. You’re doing talking segments in the back. You’re wrestling. You’re performing. It’s everything all rolled into one.
Christian Cage
In a way, I think Roxy Music is high camp, in a brilliant way.
Todd Haynes
Mum snuck me into speech and drama classes and into the National Youth Theatre and said I was going on a summer camp if Dad asked.
Adeel Akhtar
It has always been a goal of mine to climb Kilimanjaro, so that’s definitely happening, and I may write a memoir about it. When I was 25, I tried to trek to Everest Base Camp, but I got sick and ended up being carried out of Dingboche on the back of my Sherpa. So Kilimanjaro would represent a redemption of sorts.
Elin Hilderbrand
I train six to seven hours during the three separate sessions every day while in camp.
Diego Sanchez
In some ways, being on the road is like summer camp. There’s a camaraderie, but I’m also learning how to be more of a leader.
Sharon Van Etten
It’s a new day for the Democrats when it comes to matters of faith, and the younger Evangelicals are aware of this and many of them are moving into the Democratic camp.
Tony Campolo
In a few days an officer came to our camp, under a flag of truce, and informed Hamilton, then a captain of artillery, but afterwards the aid of General Washington, that Captain Hale had been arrested within the British lines condemned as a spy, and executed that morning.
William Hull
I have 16 metal screws in my right arm, from the elbow to the shoulder, and they are extremely painful at the beginning of a training camp and also when the temperature changes. I also had a surgery on my left arm and two on my hips. Those four surgeries were pivotal in my decision to retire.
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
Like the periwig and the bowler hat, the plus-four and the bow-tie, the blazer is on the way out, and those who persist in wearing it do so with a smattering of self-consciousness, a touch of obstinacy, even a pinch of camp.
Craig Brown
It is very complicated to play here at Camp Nou.
I’m in the camp that needs to discover and take risks, sometimes it’s with the promise of something special and new, sometimes it’s to stay awake, either way it’s much more stressful with all the uncertainty but worth the pain in the end.
Karen O
My best friend and I went to sleep-away camp every summer. We’d share stories of making out with boys, but we never did, so we made it all up. My real first kiss was at a friend’s house when I was in junior high. He was such a good kisser, and we’re still close friends!
Kourtney Kardashian
I grew up in a refugee camp. Thirty years. This so-called human-rights world didn’t ask me what was happening for me to be there 30 years.
Paul Kagame
Camp David is a wonderful place for the family to get away and run around and do goofy things.
Susan Ford
There’s really not much friendship between the girls on tour. There’s so much rivalry and jealousy, so everyone just hangs out in their own camp. In the locker room and players’ lounge, you can feel the jealousy.
Ana Ivanovic
Back in the 1950s and ’60s, J. M. Barrie’s ‘Peter Pan’ – starring Mary Martin and Cyril Ritchard – was regularly aired on network television during the Christmas season. I must have seen it four or five times and remember, in particular, Ritchard’s gloriously camp interpretation of Captain Hook.
Michael Dirda
I taught a class about the Tony Awards at a summer theater camp the year after I graduated from high school. So, the first time I was nominated for ‘Spring Awakening,’ it felt like a surreal dream: it was every childhood dream I had come true. It felt like a fairy tale.
Jonathan Groff
My dad put me in a theater group camp at Santa Monica Playhouse when I was, like, six, and then I started to realize I really liked it when I was 11 or 12; it was nice to just escape.
Diana Silvers
My daughter is 12 weeks old and I’ve been in a training camp for 10 weeks. So I haven’t held her properly and been out pushing the pram, doing the little things. But when I’m slugging it out and things are getting tough I just think, ‘everything is for the kids.’
Rocky Fielding
I was certainly in the stop Trump camp, but not for anyone.
Margaret Hoover
Arguably, the relationship between Liza Minnelli and Judy Garland is one of the great mother-daughter sagas of all time. Certainly, for certain people, and a lot of them, Liza is the bigger star. Liza is the more kind of viable legend, shall we say. Then there’s the other camp, where Judy is the one.
Rufus Wainwright
Normally a summer league is a dry run for training camp, gives the guys an idea what training camp looks like, and then summer league, you’re not really playing against NBA rotation type players, so not a good example of the talent level you’ll be facing, but the fall practices give you a good head start.
Tom Thibodeau
I’m always staying motivated because, as training camp goes on, practices become more intense, harder, and shorter. It’s a mental thing, too, not only physical – you have to stay mentally sharp and stay focused on the task in front of you.
Brock Lesnar
There’s been an Israeli position, which is ‘We love Mubarak,’ that permeates their whole society, the political class. That certainly differs from many of us in the pro-Israel camp in the United States.
Elliott Abrams
I don’t like to camp. Early on, Mars is going to be camping. I think there are people far better suited to do that than me. But when the first Holiday Inn Express shows up, maybe I’ll go.
Gwynne Shotwell
We went through this month camp, learning how to bump and hit the ropes. I just fell in love with WWE and sports entertainment. It was the perfect world of the merge in sports, action, acting, and entertainment. I felt like I finally found my place.
The Ritz Hotel has never yet provided game of such wondrous flavor as the bird plucked and half-cooked over the small boys’ camp fire.
Herbert Hoover
As an artist, it’s incredible to see folks see you and then be able to give that back and to be able to send two girls to a Black Girls Empowerment camp.
Amanda Seales
Furthermore, they were constantly informed by all the camp authorities that they had been abandoned by the world: they were beggars and lucky to receive the daily soup of starvation.
Martha Gellhorn
There’s kind of a summer camp aspect of filming on location.
Glen Powell
I used to mow grass and sell Christmas cards and shovel snow in order to raise the $25 to go to Boy Scout Camp in Osceola every year.
David Steward
My mother listened to all the news from the camp during the strike. She said little, especially when my father or the men who worked for him were about I remember her instinctive and unhesitating sympathy for the miners.
Agnes Smedley
I got really bad grades, so I’d hide my report card from my dad. My mom was in on it, too, because she knew he’d be furious. I probably would’ve gone to boot camp. Seriously.
Daren Kagasoff
If I train hard and have a great training camp, and I’m as prepared as I can be, I can take any heavyweight in the world.
Joseph Parker
I went to hockey camp at Michigan because my dad has some relatives in the Ann Arbor area. We went to visit them as kids, and you start to learn the language from being around people. At the same time, when I got to college, I thought my English was better than it really was. I learned a lot over my four years.
Carl Hagelin
The child stars who emerged from Disney boot camp and dominated pop culture in the late ’90s and ’00s are not only still around but also have spawned successors who have proven even more indispensable to the business of music, movies, and television.
Tom Junod
My rookie year, Byron Scott didn’t really want to sign me. In New Jersey, the New Jersey Nets. I got there, and Byron Scott didn’t really like me, but they let me come to camp and I was having a great camp. Stephon Marbury embraced me.
Stephen Jackson
People recognize me, but I get a lot of, ‘Didn’t I go to camp with you?’
Ashley Williams
My parents managed a summer camp, and it was vacant for about seven or eight months out of the year. It was in the middle of nowhere in the woods. We backed up to a state forest. So absolutely, there were creepy woods all around the house. It was easy to get lost. It was really spooky.
Caitlin Kittredge
It’s always good to have a happy camp.
Jesse Lingard
Great numbers of the Indians pass our camp on their hunting excursions: the day was clear and pleasant, but last night was very cold and there was a white frost.
Meriwether Lewis
When I was in high school, my friends and I would drive out into the country to abandoned houses and structures… haha… to ghost hunt. We would scare each other so bad! We would sometimes camp out by the abandoned buildings just to scare ourselves! Such good times. The adrenaline of real fear is so cool!
Keegan Allen
I focus about me, about my camp, about my preparation, to not get injured. I focus about me.
Jan Blachowicz
At training camp, you brainwash yourself into thinking every,day is the same, no weekends or holidays. It’s all the same – a work day. You develop a mental state to just work hard and get ready for the fight.
Paulie Malignaggi
When I was 14 or 15, a camp counselor told me I was smart. I had never been very good in school, but he told me once that I was smart but my mind operated a little differently.
Alan Dershowitz
I get frustrated by the way camp is portrayed sometimes. Camp, for me, is a nice ‘everyone is welcome’ kind of thing rather than an ‘ooh, what’s she wearing’ kind of thing.
Joe Lycett
Believe it or not, but I was a camp councilor for three years. I love kids.
Eli Roth
‘Alaska’ was filmed at my family’s farm in Maryland; ‘Dog Years’ was filmed at the summer camp I grew up going to in Maine.
Maggie Rogers
I’m not like, ‘I act.’ I’m like, ‘I’m kinda floating. I kinda did this movie; it was kinda like going to camp, and I don’t really know what any of this means!’
Sasha Lane
My father didn’t know about cricket. Then, one of my father’s friend advised him to take me to a coaching camp.
Prithvi Shaw
In my final year of attending a Christian sports camp in rural Missouri, the year before I started high school, they began to offer an elective Bible study group for young Christians who wanted a chance to read in the afternoons instead of learn to water-ski.
Daniel Mallory Ortberg
Terrorism exploded after the Camp David talks broke down in 2000 because the Palestinians’ leader at the time, Yasser Arafat, supported it.
Elliott Abrams
People, when they come up to me, are like, ‘Did we go to high school together? Or did I make out with you at sleepaway camp?’ And oftentimes, yes, that is the answer, because I went to a giant high school and made out with everybody.
Adam Pally
Basketball Without Borders is a leadership camp that takes basketball to different places around the world, to Africa, Europe, America and Asia. It’s a camp that brings players from different parts of the continent to one city that’s been assigned as the host city. We’ve been going to a different city every year.
Dikembe Mutombo
As far back as I can remember, I had an interest in fashion. I used to go to sleepaway camp, and they’d provide a list of things that you had to bring, and I always wanted to be a bit more creative than the list allowed. Like, if they required chinos, I wanted to hand-paint them.
Marc Jacobs
I’m Jewish, but not overly religious, and have certainly never formally observed the Fourth Commandment, other than via the tradition of wearing white on Friday nights at summer camp, which never seemed to dovetail with the fact that Fridays were also the night for grape juice.
Rachel Sklar
My training camp has always been been something I have looked forward to every year.
Harley Race
It is, finally, a word is untimely in three different senses, and bearing it as one’s treasure will not win one anyone’s favours; one rather risks finding oneself outside everyone’s camp… Beauty is the word that shall be our first.
Hans Urs von Balthasar
My first paying job, when I was 15, I was a day camp counselor.
Victoria Pratt
There’s always that training camp feeling that comes back to you when you’re getting ready to go.
Joe Flacco
When I was ten, I won the horseshoe-throwing contest at summer camp. I was also the Wiffle ball champion in my town.
Dwayne Johnson
Modern life is organised so that you benefit at the expense of the other, and the most extreme example of that is a camp.
Imre Kertesz
I do hot boot camp, play tennis and do yoga three times a week.
Nikita Thukral
In camp when I was eight – a bunch of kids threw me outside naked. I got ’em back!
Kelsey Grammer
All the guys called the Olympic Village a high-class Boy Scout camp.
Johnny Weissmuller
As we were leaving the Huron camp, it was awkward filming. I think that the Huron watching us was there to create tension – maybe we wouldn’t get out. Nothing complicated.
Madeleine Stowe
That was our first major tour and we got a chance to play in front of like 5000 people every day so it was like a Rock and Roll boot camp for us really, we learned a lot and made a lot of good friends.
Adam Rich
I played 15 years of hockey, and I got more injured doing two weeks of cheer camp.
Eric Christian Olsen
Most players who’ve been around any length of time think of training camp as a time of hard work, frustration and monotony. But I can honestly say I look forward to it.
George Blanda
I still have some synchronized swimming moves in my back pocket from camp when I was 8. I can really wow people at a pool party.
Sarah Rafferty
People in Scunthorpe don’t care what I say. And I’m not camp, either. I’m a geezer. I’m not a raving queer, I’ve got a bit of character. I just ignore people who shout at me in the street. I just stick my head in the air; I’m not interested.
Boy George
I do revel slightly in the fact that I am what I am – an English, middle-class, public-school-educated bloke. There is a reputation with that of being slightly stiff, but whoever gets to know me will see some other element – whether it be vulnerable or silly or camp.
Elliot Cowan
The hardship of living in a refugee camp made me psychologically strong.
Philip Emeagwali
You know, many people have called me, friends from the nationalist camp, revisionists and so on, from around the world, have called me over the years – and now again because of what happened – and they are all very cynical about the police and the authorities.
Ernst Zundel
I think the fascination with zombies is that they don’t obey the rules of monsters. The first rule of monsters is that you have to go find them. You have to make a conscious choice to go to the swamp or the desert or the abandoned summer camp.
Max Brooks
On my show, I’m definitely the youngest one. So going from a show where everyone is over 30, to the movie, where everyone was like 20, 25, it was like summer camp.
Marla Sokoloff
Anytime anyone of my friends in my camp, if we argue, we gonna fight for real.
