Camp Quotations: Take A Deep Breath

“I say take a deep breath, and think summer…specifically, summer camp. Not soccer camp, computer camp, or specialty camps of any sort. The antidote to all this stress and worry is the century-old tradition of American sleepaway camp, where kids are plucked from their daily grind, unplugged from their electronic devices, and transported to the woods where every day they can just GO OUT AND PLAY.”
-Joan Koffman, in a letter to the editor on the Newton Patch
