I’m not going to lie, I started hearing murmurs of other camp families getting their first letter yesterday and then I was consumed with the thought of mine. When was I going to hear from my new camper? Is he happy? Does he like his bunk? Then it all pays off… I have turned all my energy to total jealousy! What I would do to be in his shoes again.
Well, it’s only been 3 days since I put my son on the bus for his first summer at camp but it feels like an eternity! I kept reminding myself that it’s healthy for our kids to be anxious and nervous sometimes and to be pushed out of their comfort zone, from this they learn.
At Summer365 we are all about creative ways to make your camper happy. Writing letters and emails have become a daily routine for most parents. We have come up with a list of 6 wild, wacky and creative letters you can send in the mail and yes these are very real.
