Hey, Summer Camp Fans!
We’re publishing our first book! These are exciting times for us here at Everything Summer Camp. Originally published 15 years ago, the authors of ‘The Summer Camp Handbook’ thought their helpful guidebook could use a solid updating.
Rather than a catalog of camps, this book offers excellent advice about choosing camps, packing essential camp gear, and emotionally preparing your child (as well as yourself) for the approaching summer camp season.
Written and updated by summer camp experts Christopher Thurber and Jon Malinowski, these two have been great friends since they met all those summers ago at camp. Take it from them. They know everything you need to know about sending your kid off to summer camp. They wrote the book on it, in fact. And then they rewrote it!
Having thoroughly revised this book three times, Chris and Jon have thoroughly updated it to include day camps, reflect modern approaches to co-ed camps, and share helpful material on technology, homesickness, and camp outcomes.
I myself rolled up my sleeves for this project as well and completely re-illustrated the 70-some illustrations throughout the book including the new cover. After that, I also redesigned the layout.
“Summer camp families who have shopped our website know that we are more than just a supplier of camping gear,” says Vice President of Everything Summer Camp, Mark. “Everything Summer Camp has always wanted to help families get ready for camp and get the most out of the camp experience. When Chris and Jon approached us to publish the new edition of their book it made perfect sense for us to get involved.”
What an honor it is for Everything Summer Camp to have our name on such a helpful, quality guidebook as ‘The Summer Camp Handbook’. Check out a copy for yourself and make the first step in making your kid’s next summer camp experience be the best. Thanks for reading, Camp Fans!
