Camp Quotations – Andrew O’Hehir

“If you did attend a summer camp somewhere in North America, you’ll be thrilled and mystified to discover that summer-camp culture seems essentially unchanged since, I don’t know, forever. The skits and songs seem to be the same (“Kumbaya”! “Little Red Wagon”!), the counselors seem cool, sadistic and buffoonish in familiar ratios, and the lake water is still freezing.”

-Andrew O’Herir in an article on about the 2007 documentary Summercamp!
