Adults can't forget their summer camp-capades |

"Every adult who ever attended a camp that included sleeping in the wild has a story or three to tell around future campfires. Sometimes harrowing and almost always amusing, these sagas are ever-living proof that kids and their counselors say and do the darnedest things. And with more than 200 summer camps in this region, there's plenty of time and places for these scenarios to play out. Nationwide, about 10 million kids attend more than 12,000 camps, according to the American Camp Association. Their campmates include a gazillion bugs and other animals, found objects and an infinite supply of human foibles and follies. We asked area camp counselors to observe and report."
