If this were any year between 11 and 16 years ago, right now I would be anxiously packing my two big duffel bags, ready to ship out next week for eight weeks at my not explicitly but very much implicitly Jewish camp in New Hampshire. It’s one of those defining marks of the Jewish-American experience. Which is why, this week, we want you to send us your best, most memorable, funniest, most horrific camp stories. We will select the three that catch our eyes the most, and the talented Liana Finck will illustrate and publish them in Tablet Magazine.
Sound good? Send your stories (think 500 words or so, although haikus will also be accepted) to Campstories@tabletmag.com by next Wednesday. The winners will receive their own personal copies of Liana’s illustrations. We look forward to reading them!
