After trying about five different summer camps as a kid, I eventually struck gold and found a place where I made unforgettable memories with incredible friends. But let's just say it was a journey to get there, and I couldn't have resented my parents more during that trial and error period.
If you're a parent who sent their kid to camp — and it wasn't their idea — there's an 80% chance they despised you for it. And these 11 photos are proof:
1."My cousin dropped her daughter off at summer camp a few days ago. This is the first letter she sent home."
2."A letter from summer camp."
3."So I work at an overnight camp, and one of the kids (age 10) was scared, so the director gave them a coloring book. This is what they came back with..."
4. This kid whose mom gave him a non-negotiable:
Walking my child into summer camp and overheard another child saying he didn’t want to go. His mom said, “hm. I’m sorry. Maybe you’ll change your mind when you see all of your friends! Or maybe you won’t. And that’s OK too.” THIS GENERATION WILL BE SO WELL-ADJUSTED.
