A Good Disconnect

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.

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!
