Lessons from Fox: The World’s Oldest Summer Camper™

Article Date:

If it was a truly adventurous summer, I would spend time with one of my big sisters in another small town in Saskatchewan.  I never went to summer camp. I doubt it was even an option given how much it would have cost my parents to send all of us.
