How are you doing with your kids being away at Summer Camp?
For some, it’s an absolute pleasure, for others it’s a little tougher. I tell ya, we had one of our boys just hanging at his friends house for the evening and we looked at ourselves and just sighed at how peaceful and easy it was with just the youngest.
Charlie, on the other hand, was terribly lost without his big brother buddy. It’s a win/lose proposition, but I think we all agree that Summer Camp is an awesome time once you get over the little heartbreaking hurdles.
Summer Camp can be a kids’ version of Survivor, their own personal quest without the luxuries of home. While it may only last a week, or two, it may as well be 39 days on a deserted island. One of the most emotional points on Survivor is the time when the loved ones visit, or send letters. Same thing for kids at Summer Camp.
Some letters from kids at summer camp, however, are not as emotionally heart tugging as you might think. As you wait for your own kids to go away for their time in the woods, or come home after their fireside experience, you might want to pick up the book PS I Hate It Here, a collection of letters kids wrote home from camp. Scroll through some of the best/worst and have your fears eased/heightened.
