About There’s No Place Like Summer Camp
Ever wondered why Summer Camp is commonly associated with the best time of your life?
The summer of 2014 was the best of Andrews life. It was the year the computer geek took the step out into the world to become the outdoor living specialist through Camp America. Independently travelling 6,000 miles across the globe, he would soon experience why many call this the best experience of their life.
After months of preparation, Andrew finally touched down in Atlanta on what would be a rollercoaster of a ride for the summer. A British agnostic geek, volunteering in a Jewish summer camp surrounded by Americans in a foreign land.
The three months in the baking heat would soon unravel many stories with the strangers who would quickly become a family. The story of what summer camp is like was all recorded in a first-hand diary which is now being published for all to read. The book provides an incredible insight into the day to day life of summer camp and why so many people return home with a wanderlust to see more from the world.
The book has been designed upon the diary entries made by the author on that date. There’s No Place Like Summer Camp goes beyond simple diary entries with daily ratings, social media updates and more; in one comprehensive overview of what summer camp is all about.
A Book about Camp America
Experience the journey of a transformation of a computer geek as he ventures out into the Georgia wilderness to become an Outdoor Living Specialist for the summer. The transformation of strangers becoming best friends and a computer geek into an outlandish focus of attention is breath-taking. Sometimes, the best stories are the true ones.
More of a first-hand account rather than a guide, There’s No Place Like Summer Camp will answer the age-old quote “This one time, at summer camp…”.
