What I Learned from Summer Camp; Way Beyond Sports, Swimming and Crafts

Camp teaches skills way beyond how to dribble a ball, master the butterfly & perfect the box stitch with lanyard. This post explains the intrinsic skills campers leave camp with.

What is Blog Etiquette? Is it ok to share another blog second hand? As a blog novice I am not sure if Emily Post would approve but I was inspired by a recent blog and I am going to pay it forward. 

As you are counting down the days until your child embarks on a day or residential camp experience remember that "everything I know about being a kid, being an adult and most importantly, being a mom, I learned at camp."

I whole heartedly agree with Erica. (And here’s a little secret; after reading the article I scrolled down to the picture only to learn that Erica and her friends were campers of mine 16 years ago. I am so proud that her camp memories are strong and that she continues to share the influence of camp with others. And by the way, when did these preteen girls become wise adults?)
