Notes on Camp.
Sorry for the delayed post of my work- due to having to rework this piece and do some alterations on other work on top of all my new work to get done has made my posting habits get pretty sporadic. Anyway, this is my This American Life editorial for the episode "Notes on Camp", which talks about people's experiences in summer camps and in situations that were similar to a summer camp. I had a lot of difficulty with figuring out where I was going with this piece, but I'm pretty happy with the final product! I ended up focusing on the aspect of growing up in a camp, which not only was important for the camps themselves (repeat customers bring in a constant stream of money) but was considered by the kids to be integral to them gaining experiences to help them grow up to be well rounded adults.
