Summer Camp: Take Chances, Make Memories

Sleeping bags and campfires, crafts and sports, new friends and fun crushes-There's nothing quite like summer camp for the experience of a lifetime!

Some of you IML'ers are already seasoned camp veterans.

Maria, 11, told us: "I went to science camp in the mountains. It was very cool and I'll never forget that week. I learned a lot of new things and I met new people. That was the best part."

Says Nick, 12: "I went to a camp and loved it. I met my first girlfriend there and we still write even though we broke up."

If you're a first-timer for summer camp this year, or even just thinking about it for the future, the whole idea of leaving home and living with a bunch of strangers can be pretty scary. How do you know which camp is right for you? Will you make new friends and enjoy yourself? What if you miss your family?

Relax. IML's got all these questions -- and more -- covered.
