Man of Steel screenwriter David S. Goyer made reference to summer camp in a statement about sci-fi writer Richard Matheson, who died at age 87 this week.
“Richard was a legend. Even growing up in the wilds of Michigan, I became aware of and appreciated his work at a young age. I read the paperback of I Am Legend at summer camp. He, more than any other writer, inspired me to become a screenwriter. The world has lost a great one,” Goyer said.
My favorite summer camp-related tweet of the week:
BuzzFeed went back to the summer camp well for a post with “29 Lessons You Learned at Summer Camp.”
Avril Lavigne announced a new camp scholarship program.
The Atlantic wrote about how leaving a kid at camp can test their resolve.
This week in not really summer camp news: the death of a broken air conditioning unit is threatening a “summer camp” in Arizona.
