To Summer Camp Or Not To Summer Camp?
I want my son to have a good summer and experience the joys of camp. But I am just waiting like everyone else — for clarity and for summertime to be what we used to remember it as.

When I think of summer camp, I am reminded of the rite of passage of grass stains, slathered sunscreen and making new friends.A carefree summer at camp on the horizon would allow him to immerse himself in the outdoor activities he enjoys, which have diminished with the shift back to virtual learning." I think summer camp would provide a great outlet for my child’s emotional and social development." I still remember my time at summer camp, getting too many mosquito bites, swimming in a lake, and learning new songs and dance moves.
