Camp memoir

Minneapolis author Eric Dregni remembers being sent to camp at age 6, kicking and screaming.

Now a father of three, a college professor and the dean of the Italian Concordia Language Village, Lago del Bosco, in Hackensack, Dregni has published a humorous memoir about the challenges and rewards of overnight camp.

You’re Sending Me Where? Dispatches from Summer Camp chronicles the magic of the “uniquely American experience of camp,” and assures parents: There’s still a place in the world where kids can unplug and connect with nature — and each other.
