Happy Campers

The Center for Jewish History‘s photostream is overflowing with camp pics of teenagers chilling at various summer camps—dancing the hora, shooting arrows, and floating downstream. I wish I deserved the honor of wearing the Camp Allegro sweater covered in homemade award badges (see below). It’s perfect!!!
