Camp Scatico: 1993

I spent the summer at a summer camp in New York State, just after I'd finished university at age twenty-three.  I kept a diary of my time at Camp Scatico, which can be viewed by following this link.

I transcribed the letters exchanged between myself and my mother while I was at camp and during post-camp travels, follow this link to open a consolidated PDF of them.

Near Montreal and facing reality - a car breakdown where all of the car garage staff claimed they couldn't speak English
