A former camper responds

A response to the "You'll love summer camp" column:

Geez....I thought summer camp was where you learn to stretch plastic wrap tightly across the top of the toilet, so the next little camper gets a wet surprise when she uses the restroom - (and nobody ever admits who brought the roll of Saran Wrap) - or camp is where you fall off the top bunk and break your collar bone, so the camp nurse and the cabin counselor rush you to the hospital and call your parents in the middle of the night - or camp is where you play mud football and get ringworm or weird sores on your legs a few days later - or even is where you get a new haircut and it's free! - oh yeah, fond memories!
