Thanks for Visiting Us 100,000+ Times

Hard to believe, but the Letters to Camp blog has now been read well over 100,000 times!  Now in its fifth year, this blog has been raising quite a ruckus by providing helpful letter-writing tips to parents, grandparents, family, and friends writing letters to their kids at overnight camps.  It sounds so simple and yet… I know, it’s crazy to think that anyone would want help writing funny, engaging, supportive letters to their kids at camp.  But that’s why I started the blog in the first place – I was desperate for help creating witty, clever letters to my own kids, day in and day out for what would turn out to be about 400 letters so far (yikes).   I hope that this site will continue to provide you with inspiration and clever ideas to help you to support your camper.

Welcome back to another season of Letters TO Camp!  Check back regularly and be sure to take a look at the categories to your right to find all of the resources you need for great letters to your kids at camp!

Talk Like a Pirate With Your Camper

Ahoy mateys – wishin’ ye a happy and celebratory Columbus Day!

As you write letters to camp, it’s always a good idea to mix it up with new and clever material – jokes, stories, interesting facts etc.

Here’s a fun topic that any camp-age boy will eat up: pirates.  And what better topic for Columbus Day since Columbus and pirates alike rode ye olde giant sea between the continents.

Kids @ Home

My kids came home from camp on Thursday.  Each year that day has a certain rhythm to it.  So I’d like to share that day with you: from silence to chaos and back again.  Here goes.

6:20 am.  Silence.  The dog nestles up to me – for him, I’m just another warm body.  “Honey, time to get up so we can leave at 7:15.”  Still quiet…

6:30 am.  Sniff, sniff: I smell nothing but broken plaster around the new windows in the kids’ rooms.

7:23 am.  Leaving the house to pick up our camper.  GPS says we’ll be there at about 9:18 am, 18 minutes after the gates open for final pickup.

8:00 am.  Discussing with my wife how our kids feel that this is their worst day of the year, since they have to leave camp.  We’re happy to have them home but I’m not sure I’d say this is our best day.

The kids’ best day is the day they go to camp.  And that’s why that day is our worst day.  Although after ten summers, we’re kind of used to it by now.  Or numb – not sure which.
