Camp stories aren’t just for the campfire

Billy Collins taught English for 30 years in the Bronx before he became a best-selling poet and two-time Poet Laureate of the United States. But before all of that, he was a camper.

Mr. Collins takes a simple story about making a lanyard at camp and turns it into a meaningful poem about the special relationship between a mother and her child. How many stories happen at camp every single day that describe this special relationship? Are you doing a good job of…1> capturing those stories and 2> telling those stories?

Camp stories aren't just for around the campfire. If your website or your Facebook page or your blog isn't doing a great job of capturing and telling camp stories…why not?
