Whether it’s your first summer or 8th summer as a camp parent, this time of year is a bit overwhelming. The count down on the camp websites are now flashing under 30 days, your trunks have an official pick up date, and somewhere in your house you have turned a room into “The Camp Room”. The camp room is a place where you gather and organize your child’s clothes, bedding, gear, and bunk junk. If you don’t have one yet, get one! You will go into that room several times a week counting and recounting how many towels you have.
