Obvious Letter Ideas

So this whole letter-writing business is not always so obvious. Here are a few suggested topics. A note of caution – while you want to your letters to be informative and interesting, remember not to make your child homesick either. So make sure not to say things like how much you miss them, how it’s only 7 weeks until they will be home etc.

The Usual Suspects

  • The weather at home (always a safe bet). Best to NOT mention the hurricane watch posted for Mikey’s camp!
  • When you woke up
  • What you ate for breakfast (now we’re stretching)
  • What you ate for… lunch, dinner, snack, midnight snack…
  • Where you went – work, meals etc.
  • Interesting stories from work (really?)
  • Family news – “Aunt Cindy got marries last week in Akron.”

OK — So Maybe You Are Letter-Worthy!
Remember – this is not a contest with your camper. Interesting: good. Too interesting: bad. Life changing: really really bad… from a homesickness perspective of course.

  • Entertainment, movies, rock concerts (yeah right)
  • Leisure activities – walking, running, working out, biking, triathlons, iron man etc.
  • World trips
