Turns out my kids love sleep away camp! But they are very subtle about it. Like last week I got this letter from my 9 year old daughter…
The circus activities are fun! Fantastic! Tell me more…
The kids in the “green shirts” are day campers who get to go home at night.
And clearly she’s begging us to let her come home. But I’m also reading between the lines and I think she’s saying… I LOVE THIS CAMP!!!
Anyway, this is one of those 3 week camps, where the kids come home on the weekends. Never heard of it? I’ll tell you why. Because no one is looking for their kids to come home on the weekends!
As soon as my 9 year old daughter got home, she totally defected. She insisted she wasn’t going back. And frankly, we didn’t make her.
Because she’s 9. And summer is supposed to be fun, not agonizing. And most importantly, because they had a pretty generous refund policy.
I still have one kid at sleep away camp.
Who I’m just going to assume is having the BEST TIME EVER!! (Please don’t tell me otherwise.)
