As soon as we dropped off our oldest son at his first-time camp experience, I felt uneasy. Did we make the right decision encouraging him to go? Why didn't we ask a friend to go with him? Would he tell someone if he was lonely? What if he needed me?
4-H camp is a very special place. While the lanyards might eventually snap off, and the smell of sunscreen and sunburn medication fades away, the things we learned from each other will stick around forever.
