LETTERS from CAMP
I haven't had one argument with any of the girls in my cabin. It is really easy to avoid arguments. I haven't talked to anyone all summer.
I am not trying to bribe my counselor. $4 is loan. $10 is a bribe.
You don't need to worry about roaches. We haven't seen one all summer. The rats have eaten them all.
Why do I have to be different from all the other campers?
Dear Grandma Suzie,
I have been at camp for 4 weeks
and so far I have had a sprained ankle, a sore throat with a temperature
of 103, three stitches in my left arm, a patch on my eye and a chipped
LETTERS to CAMP
Do not sell your baseball glove, snorkeling mask, football uniform, or volleyball this summer. Your father says this is your third and final warning.
This is the first year you have
had Jamie in your cabin. I think I should let you know about some
of his traits that may be different from the other campers.
Sincerely, Mrs. Agatha Christiansen
My Dearest Patsy,
Unless you have a real emergency please do not call us from camp. The Counselors have complained about you numerous "emergencies. Running out of hot pink nail polish is not an emergency.
Hugs and kisses, Mommy
If at all possible would you or another staff member try to take a picture of Henry hitting the baseball; we have plenty of pictures of his striking out.
Thanks, Mr. Henry Dolittle Sr.
