Camps Then and Now

Whether you have never sent your children to summer camp or you're super excited for them to return this year to revel in all that summer camps have to offer, including learning important values like teamwork and independence, it's interesting to note just how much camps have changed over the years--and how they've remained the same.

Newbies, take a glimpse into camp life as an ex-camper describes her experience. Seasoned campers, we welcome you on this trip down memory lane. Does it all sound familiar? Do you know where your kids are going to camp yet?
