Camp Quotations – Josh Wolk

“At camp I was recognized for what I could do, as contrasted with school, where on a daily basis I was angrily confronted with why I couldn’t dunk a basketball. I even had my first kiss at a dance with a neighboring girls’ camp. Everything I couldn’t get during the school year, I got at Eastwind.”
-Josh Wolk, in his book Cabin Pressure: One Man’s Desperate Attempt to Recapture His Youth as a Camp Counselor
