I went to sleep-away camp at Camp Taconic for two months when I turned 10 and never looked back. I made great friends, took field trips, laughed a lot and learned to play tetherball (and curse).
I also went to camp at Buck's Rock in Connecticut, where I learned to weave 50 years ago.
We did weaving, batik, dancing, jewelry making, woodworking, and more. I went back to visit recently and saw the weaving studio, 50 years later.
Did you go to Summer camp?
Do you still find ways to go to camp now? When I travel to Guatemala with groups of women every year, I feel like I'm at camp again.
