Summer Camp can be a scary place for kids. It’s no wonder why the setting of summer camp has been used in various horror movies. There is something about the unknown of camp that creates fear. But there is something you, as parents, can do to enable your child’s experience at camp to be great.
Here is my latest list of books, apps, articles or videos that I think are worthy of some attention. Please leave a comment if you know of a good resource of some sort.
Many camps are perfect for sissies. The experience they offer is shallow, hollow, bland, and comfortable. At the end of each session, campers leave with little more than a nice memory. Such a waste of time.
This year I set a goal to read 40 books. For some that might seem like a lot, but relative to some I greatly respect, it is not that many. Below are the books I have read so far this year, with a brief description of each. You might want to pick one or two of them up. Every month or two, I’ll update this list.
As always, I like to take some good resources I’ve recently stumbled upon, and pass them on to my readers. It might be blog posts I’ve read, books I’d recommend, various videos I’ve found, or just random things that I find worthwhile. Enjoy.
Summer camp is a powerful place. I know that first hand. Over the past few decades, our culture has changed dramatically. Because of these changes, the impact that a week of camp can have on a child has only increased.
Every once in a while, I like to post some interesting things I’ve stumbled upon. I typically lump these various books, articles, or video clips into these posts I call, “Friday Finds.” Enjoy.
