written by a 10 year old:

Wish Jezebel had posted this list at the Beginning of summer!!  I'm not sure who the original author of this "cool" list was, but I kind of want to give him a hug and tell him not to think so hard. . . 

My first experience with sleep away summer camp wasn't until middle school.  I was a total homebody as a kid but somehow, at age 12, my parents got me to agree to a 6 day sleepover camp in New Hampshire. . . Below is my first mildly-traumatizing postcard to my mom.  She was at an artist's workshop at the same time and had sweetly pre-self addressed and stamped the postcard for me.  

After filling my mom in on the details of my first day at camp I then recorded every horrible moment in my diary.  Oh the emotion!!

Needless to say, by day 3 I was having the time of my life.

Sleepaway camp isn't complete without Tiger Beat's Devon Sawa and Jonathan Taylor Thomas!!
