When I was growing up, kids didn’t have the constant electronic tether to their parents that they do today. It caused the inevitable problems of course – for instance, never knowing where my brother was at dinner time (and having to call everyone in the neighborhood to find out), going to the wrong mall entrance to get picked up and missing our mom, not knowing when she’d get there to pick us up, etc.

Send a Quick Email
Every year, my sisters send great emails to family and friends so that everyone knows when their respective kids will be at camp, where to write and what is acceptable to send.
This is a great idea because it gets the camper’s extended family engaged in letter-writing – without the typical confusion of having to figure out the camp address, guessing what the camp will allow etc and only remembering to write after the camper comes home.

A silly fill-in-the-blank letter!
Let’s face it, it’s the middle of the summer, and you’re probably tapped out. There’s only so much you can write about waking up, washing, cleaning the house, going to work, eating dinner etc! And that’s where CampLibs ™ come in. CampLibs are just like MadLibs only you, the adult, fill them in and then your kids get to read them.
Imagine your camper rolling on the floor laughing at your CampLib. They’ll be reading them to their bunkmates – they’ll be the hit of the cabin. And you – well, YOU will be the coolest parent of all. Because who else sends a CampLib to their campers? Until now, NO ONE. So jump right in. This CampLib is guaranteed to make writing a letter as fun as reading it. And let’s face it, the price is r-i-g-h-t (as in free)!
So what do you think? Should we write more CampLibs? Let us know!

More Funny Letters to Camp Secrets
#1: Transform the mundane into the amusing. Let’s face it, your home life is probably a lot less interesting than your camper’s experience. So spice yours up. Search out funny details. For example, my daughter left an old orange in her gym bag for a month. Let’s just say that it had changed color and shape. We got some good mileage out of that one for months.
