Camp relationships come up a lot on this podcast, for a number of reasons, but mostly because they were among the most enjoyable times of our lives. There was very little outside pressure, lots of chances for intimacy (physical and otherwise) and mostly taking place during a time in our lives when we didn’t know what the hell we were doing and neither did anyone else.
Ellie Krupnick spent many a summer at Camp Ramah in the Poconos, and based on her time there co-authored a great piece for HuffPo singling out the 24 Reasons Dating At Camp Is Better Than In The Real World.
