Notes on Camp, this weekend? "Stories of summer camp. People who love camp say that non-camp people simply don't understand what's so amazing about camp." It was completely delightful- whether you went to camp or not.
I laughed out loud when one girl talked about "home friends" who just didn't understand because I am certain a good friend growing up felt exactly that way. (I was one of her "home friends".)
I hated it.
Most of the campers had been coming for years and years and I was new and really shy. I did learn to shoot a bow and arrow and to water ski, but I was pretty miserable all 4 weeks.
I sent my parents letters that started out as pleas to come home and ended up as hate mail for sending me. And you can find letters just like mine, and letters a whole lot funnier than mine in the hilarious book, P.S I Hate it Here!: Kids Letters from Camp.
Any of you camp people?
