Fridays with Franky: Write Campers Letters
It’s really pretty easy to do, but many of us have lost our letter writing skills because of email, texting, and other forms of electronic messaging. I read (yes, if I can type I can read!) a recent blog that shares some great ideas for letter writing, especially to campers!
Sunshine is a Mom and a camp director who has a blog called Sunshine Parenting. She posted a very helpful article entitled 5 Fun Ideas for Letters to Campers. She shares some fun and creative ways to write to your favorite camper while she is enjoying her days at WeHaKee Camp for Girls! Here is a brief look at what she has to offer:
- Create a “fill-in-the-blanks” response letter!
- Provide a “Top 10” List (à la David Letterman)!
- Write a letter from a pet or favorite toy!
- Make up a story about a picture you’ve seen of them!
- Have everyone in the family write a “warm fuzzy” for your camper!

Although we do offer families a way to send email messages to their campers, time and time again we see how campers cherish their letters from parents, family and friends so much more thant the printed email message. Don’t get me wrong, they love to hear from you in what ever way you choose, but they hang onto those letters, sometimes keeping them stored in a box for years and years!
Where should you send those letters to make sure she gets them while she’s at Camp WeHaKee? Simple address them this way:
N8104 BARKER LAKE ROAD
WINTER WI 54896 USA
Keep those cards and letters coming all summer long! And have a great weekend everyone!
