May is definitely the month we are feeling those pre-summer jitters in so many ways. Like you, we are so excited for the upcoming season and can’t wait to see all of your amazing camp and trip experiences. But, we have all been there: the nervousness before sending your child away is completely normal, and we are here to prep you for all the feelings that you and your family will experience.

Who would have guessed that this big city mom started out at a small town camp… we did!! Meet Risa, the co-owner of Big City Moms, a marketing and events company targeted at new and future parents. She attended her 8-week sleepaway camp for 11 amazing summers, and loved every minute of it! She’s here bringing her camp spirit and Big City Mom advice straight to you.
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!
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!
We are so excited to be featured in The New York Times parenting blog, Motherlode!

It is our strong belief that camp is the greatest gift you could give a child, and we think that this should be true for any and all children.
