Makes me so happy!

This show is pure joy! I listen to it every night before I go to sleep to end my day with a smile. It is like Calgon - it takes me away. 😄

Summer days all year round

I don’t listen to many podcasts and i love this one. As a Jewish kid who grew up in Alabama and went to summer camp as a teen this podcast just brings me back to my summer home.

I went to two camps! Surprise Lake Camp in Cold Spring, NY and Camp Poyntelle in Poyntelle, PA!

What a great podcast, it brings me way back! Camp was, is a whole other world! Thank you for this podcast! It’s the best way to travel back and see I to my younger life.
