In this piece we see the love of nature that has always been a part of camp life. Its admiration for spiders came out just a few years after the release of E. B. White’s famous Charlotte’s Web.
My middle son Ellis had his first camp experience last year and loved it. Now he’s on board for a full five weeks and can’t wait!
