Camp Scatico: 1993

Shortly after I'd finished at university when aged twenty-three, I spent the summer at a summer camp in New York State.  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.

Facing reality near Montreal - a car breakdown where all of the garage repair staff claimed they couldn't speak English
