Letters from Summer Camp

This article made me smile. It reports that many sleep-away summer camps for kids have a no-tech policy which allows kids to unplug. The kids stay busy with crafts and socializing and developing outdoors skills.  They are apparently also reflecting on their adventures and relaying them to their parents in the time-honored camp tradition of writing a letter home.

I’m glad places like this still exist in the world. They give me hope for another generation of people who have an appreciation for the unplugged things in life–like star gazing, marshmallow roasting, and letter writing.

    Thank you for sharing this! I remember writing letters from summer camp, and I’m glad to see some kids are still being forced to unplug and do the same!
