A reader pointed out in a different thread that kids still get to practice shooting .22 rifles at YMCA summer camp. There is still some sanity left in our world.
Me? Summer camp was the absolute best time of my life as a kid. Each July, Mom would drive two hours to drop me off at Camp Hazen, and I spent either 2 or 4 weeks in contented bliss. The cabins were un-airconditioned and broiling at times, but it didn't matter. The food was even pretty good, with the exception of the oatmeal which everyone called "Hazen paste." I never understood the handful of kids who moped around being homesick. The only thing I didn't like about YMCA summer camp was the ride home.
I am looking forward to sending my son to Camp Cullen next summer. I can't wait to hear how much he enjoyed it.
Now, Meatballs. Was there anything remotely funny about that movie? Other than leaving Morty asleep in the middle of the road or on a raft in the lake.
