SLIDESHOW: "Camp Camp" Takes Us Back To Summers Gone By

Posted: Updated:

"Camp Camp: Where Fantasy Island Meets Lord of the Flies" is the sequel to "Bar Mitzvah Disco," picking up where that book left off — to head back to the one place on earth where appropriated Native American terminology, competitive sports, social hierarchy, and libido-soaked nights lived in wholesome harmony. The book, the ultimate summer read, is a love-letter to summer camp and a history of our generation, a chance to relive every Champion sweatshirt-wearing, accidental bed-wetting, sky-hook-wedgie-receiving, tie-dye-making golden moment via hundreds of photographs and stories straight from the source, including tall tales from AJ Jacobs, Paul Feig, David Wain, Sloane Crosley, and HuffPost's own Rachel Sklar. Work has already begun on the third volume of this generational story -- "For Those Who Tried To Rock" -- a history of music as told by bands that NEVER made it... be a part of it now at Submissions featuring hair metal especially welcome.

In the meantime, enjoy this slideshow of photos from the book.
