Summer camps helped cement the notion of childhood as a time apart, at once protected and playful. But camps had been crucial too because children delighted in them, helped to shape them, and felt transformed by them. Focusing mainly on the northeast, where camps were very first founded as properly as the industry grew most extensively, and drawing on a range of sources including camp films, amateur performances, brochures, oral histories, letters home, industry journals, camp newspapers, and scrapbooks, Children's Nature brings this special and emotionally resonant world to life. Camp leaders promised that campers would be physically and morally invigorated by fresh mountain air, simple food, everyday swimming, and group living, and thus better fit for the year to come.
