Yes, you heard that right, our friend Jenny is going where no mom has gone before… she is following her kids to camp! Jenny Isenman AKA “Jenny From the Blog,” now “Jenny from the Bunk,” is a pop-culture obsessed, card carrying Gen Xer, and the humorist behind the award winning site, The Suburban Jungle. She is bravely venturing into the unknown land of messy bunks, loud dining halls, and kid-filled canteens. We invite you to join us in following her journey to find out what really goes on behind-the-scenes, and share in the joy and gift of sleepaway camp.
The buses are getting ready to roll out to camp this week! Read our note to you about this exciting time and instructions for an amazing DIY and heartfelt present to give your child, the classic bus note!
This week’s Camper of the Week / Camp Fashionista, Amanda Zuckerman, is teaming up with the Summer 365 Counselors to bring you her must-haves for Summer 2014! Seriously, everything on their site, from comfy bedding to cool accessories is so amazing, we wish we lived in a bunk to decorate ourselves! Check out her picks here, and visit Dormify to get 20% off all their amazing camp gear with our exclusive discount code: SUMMER365!
Zoe is the ULTIMATE camper! She attended her all-girls, 8-week sleep away camp for seven years as a camper and one year as a counselor. (And now visits all the time!) She grew up in Scarsdale, New York, and now lives in Manhattan. Zoe is currently working in theatrical productions and corporate affairs at The Weinstein Company, a film production and distribution company. Maybe she can even get Harvey to make a movie about CAMP… where do we audition?! She still caries her camp bag that she got at age seven, remembers all her camp cheers, and has even thought about getting her camp logo tattooed on her ankle. Sound crazy to you? Sounds like a camp soul sister to us!
